Description

Mariquita is one of the most iconic yachts in sailing history and has a colorful career spanning over a century. Designed and built for industrialist Arthur Stothert by William Fife III, she was launched in 1911 at Fairlie on the Clyde in Scotland. After years undergoing painstaking work Mariquita finally reappeared in 2004. With Mariquita’s restoration, her owners not only had in mind to save a unique yacht, but also the quality ethos to which she was built and raced back in 1911. The Mariquita Project was one of the most professional and well-resourced classic yacht programs ever undertaken. To provide great hull strength and to optimize weight the designer opted for a composite construction, mahogany planking fastened with bronze fastenings on a full steel structure. As a unique classic gaff cutter and a successful racer MARIQUITA is now offered in perfect condition. Please contact Baum & König for additional information. Photo: Ron Valent
