- 5.5 G-19 sold to Switzerland in 1972 / Lake Geneva? - 19.02.2008 by Kaspar Stubenrauch
- It has today been confirmed that this boat was sold to Switzerland, in 1972.
Eventually, she can be found on Lake Geneva, possibly without Swiss 5.5 sailnumber, as she is believed to never have been registered there.
The boat is told to be a sistership to Z-91 + Z-92, hence will be a direct look-alike.
This info for those having an open eye, when strolling through harbours on Lake Geneva, next springtime. Please pass info on her location as a note, here.
