Citron Pressé has been our home for two years.
A dream sailboat that never tired of surprising us.

Due to the restrictions that the world faced in 2019 and 2020, we were forced to hire delivery service, it was necessary to remove the sailboat from the marina in Boston before the complete freeze, or it would stay there until early spring the following year.
We hired Ike Bartlett and Caroline Bronsard to take the boat from the United States to the Bahamas, where we could board.

As soon as she left Boston, where she was, she was already brave, facing the freezing weather of October, surprising the captains. She bravely crossed the waters fleeing the right freeze, disconcerted by her speed and firmness.

Then she had to show herself once again when she bravely faced the strong winds due to the passage of a hurricane.

When we boarded in Freeport, we were able to see for ourselves why the captain wanted the Citron Pressé to belong to him.

It didn't take much to experience its stability and security, plus it reacts quickly to any command. It heels a little when it enters the wind, making the crossing more pleasant.

The route chosen by us to reach the Caribbean, was unusual.

We left Inagua in the Bahamas and crossed straight to Luperon in the Dominican Republic against the winds and currents in record time.

Each new captain who had the opportunity to make a small crossing with us was surprised by the sailboat's behavior in the waves.

It was common to hear from them:

"It is the best sailboat I have ever sailed, it sails smoothly and steadily"

Another factor that draws a lot of attention is the size and comfort of the cockpit. Accommodates up to 9 adults, and the back support, is quite high, providing a lot of safety and comfort. If you have a child, you can't be more peaceful and happy.

In these two years and in the crossings we have faced, the boat has proven itself.

Two years lived intensely, we braved the blue sea, shallow seas, and deep seas. Citron has always protected us.


Will miss you, miss you so much!


Unfortunately, we need to let Citron Pressé go with a new family that loves it as we love it.

Physical reasons do not allow us to continue with this adventure.

We must let the Citron Pressé have its way.

What other Wauquiez owners say about the sailboat

Jane Danger

L'Amphitrite, the most beautiful of sailboats, a timeless silhouette that goes through fashions, real comfort under sail and engine, a spacious, lighted and reassuring interior, a deck that allows you to move around easily and sunbathe while reading a good book cradled by a gentle sea. Both the adventure and the cocoon, the Amphitrite is incomparable.


Michel Bonijol

The Amphitrite can go all seas, comfortably for the crew, and it stays on the edge of low prices compared to other boats. And then, the icing on the cake: which boat will survive us? Modern boats or a well-maintained amphitrite?




We love it because it's solid, simple, comfortable, safe, and sails well enough! It's got a big Perkins when you need it, and great engines too. I wouldn't trade it for a modern production boat that costs $4x
