Design 1705 - Giralda

Two boats were built to this design: Giralda shown above (and below right) and Jan Pott III, both by highly respected builders. Giralda was built by Walsteds and Jan Pott III by Poul Molich, both of Denmark. Both were launched in 1964. They were designed specifically for ocean racing.

Here are the plans.

  1. Today I found Jan Pott III (since 1971 named Nautila) is for sale from her ever home port Flensburg/Germany.
    In 1968, as the current owner (since 1971) states, she was re-rigged as a sloop, her keel was shortened and a new rudder with skeg and a trim tab mounted. Obviously, the stern has been shortened as well. Still a very beautiful boat!
