Between the Sixties and beginning of the Eighties a British Yard called Dagless built a sucessful range of power yachts based upon a design from Jack Francis Jones: the Fleur de Lys of which different versions ranging from 50' to 98' where built. Towards the mid Sixties, three different families of the Catalan gentry placed an order for three 20 m. boats at the Astilleros Viudes (founded in 1940) based on the Fleur de Lys design. They were the Geno, the Danae and the Amusco IV. Having the same hull lines, each one differed from the other on the deck and internal lay-out. They formed a Mediterranean improvement on the original Fleur de Lys design. In fact, the life “en plein air” was better cared of and the internal comfort well detailed. All three boats, of a very high craftmanship and much more opulently finished than the original British built boats, are still sailing nowadays: the Geno in Italy, while the Danae and Amusco IV still in Spanish waters. The Amusco IV was restored a few years ago. She received a full check to the hull, cleaning and painting inside, new engines, new electric and hydraulic systems, new galley and furniture equipment. More recently her owner has rebuilt the decks, replaced some beams and serviced the equipment. The transom is totally new. She has since sailed very little, always being maintained in good shape and the engines show very low hours. Today he is about to mount new electronics and ask for a new Official inspection to get out sailing again.
