Design 1894 - Sunmaid V

Two boats were built to this One Ton Cup design. It is yet another example of further development of the Clarionet type, design #1857. Sunmaid V was built of wood by the Clare Lallow yard of Cowes, England and launched in 1967. The design features the separate skeg and rudder that had come into vogue at the time.

The boat shown here is her sister, Tina (of Melbourne). I can find no record of her builder on file but can only assume she was built in Australia.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 36'-11"
LWL 26'-8"
Beam 10'-2"
Draft 6'-3"
Displacement 14,496 lbs
Ballast 7,000 lbs
Sail Area 530 sq ft


  1. I see no trace of the Yacht Volonté, built in 1968 by Sylvestro yard in Nice France

  2. I'm not sure how one adds Photos to the blog---- but I have an old copy of one showing her being TRAPEZED in the Solent....
    Perhaps someone could let me know so I can share it ??
    Copy and paste doesn't work..
    Cheers Bob E..

  3. I have the yacht S&S design #1895 built in mahogany on oak frame in Finland (Wilenius Boatyard) launched in 1967, very similar to Sunmaid. Has been in the family since launch, now recently gone through major overhaul. Who is in charge of this website so that also this one-off could be included in the listing of S&S yachts here?
