Commissioned in 1929 by Captain Guy H MacCaw whose brief to William Fife was simply: build a sound, safe cruiser, safe to go to the south seas islands in with no anxiety . Fife was then 73 years old and this would be one of his last large yachts. She was restored at Southampton Yacht Services from 1985-87 by skipper Paul Goss and one of the Fairlie Restorations creators, Albert Obrist. ALTAIR truly set the standard for all subsequent classic yacht restorations. She spent time in a yard again in 1999 at Cantieri Beconcini in La Spezia, Italy, under the ownership of a Spanish banker, and was a regular at the Med. regattas often seen fighting with the schooners, Mariette and Orion and the ketch, Thendara.
