THE AMERICA’S CUP AUCTON: THE PRIVATE COLLECTIONS OF BEN LEXCEN AND ALAN BOND
October 21, 2016 Leave a comment
Mossgreen announces The America’s Cup Auction featuring The Private Collections of Ben Lexcen and Alan Bond, two of the central figures in Australia’s historic 1983 America’s Cup victory – Lexcen, the designer of the winning yacht, and Bond, the high profile businessman and owner of Australia II.
In an extraordinary coincidence, both collections were independently offered to Mossgreen to sell at the same time. This uncanny twist of fate that reunites their friendship posthumously through their private collections.
The auction will take place at the Western Australian Maritime Museum where the Australia II has been displayed since December 2002.
