With her exquisite beauty, Silhouette is one of the few first Rule 8-Metres left in the world. Carl-Heinz Otto enjoys his boat tremendously and participates in almost every event. Boat handling and speed are hard to beat. Sailing with a group of long time friends Silhouette is a top contender for the First Rule Cup. With Silhouette you will see a yacht rebuilt as one will probably only find on Lake Constance; perfection, even in the smallest detail. She has proven to be one of the fastest gaff rigged yachts on the Lake.
