Pamina is a Center Cockpit Sailing Yacht build for and by Franz Kalb, the renowned German Naval Architect. She was destined to be his ultimate boat, unfortunately Kalb passed before enjoying her to sail the 7 Seas. The hull is wood (38mm) built by Germany’s most famous shipyard: Sommerfeld. The keel is from the “Meyer Wharf (6.5 t) and the rudder is a Becker rudder from Sanders (hydraulic). The hull is covered with several layers of epoxy.

Pamina was finally finished in 2015 after nearly 3 decades of building by Franz Kalb, who put all is tremendous knowledge and love into creating her to perfection.

Everything on this boat is carried out extremely robust and reliable and she is made for Ocean and Bluewater Cruising. The boat was put into water in 2015 for the first time but, following Kalb’s passing, she stayed on land until 2018. Sails where never used before 2019.

The current, first sailing owners, bought Pamina from Franz Kalb’s Estate.

They decided to replace most of the equipment on board to get the newest and most up-to-date ones (invoices available).


Pamina is not another boat.

She is the Ultimate boat from a great Architect
