Design 2182 - Mandrake

Mandrake was designed as an all-out Admiral's Cup racing yacht with a bias for light weather performance in anticipation of some Mediterranean sailing. As a result displacement is moderate and sail area is generous. She was constructed of aluminum by the Walter Huisman Shipyard of Holland and launched in 1974. Notably she won the Middle Sea Race of that same year.

Three boats were built to this design, including Palynodie VI.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 48'-2"
LWL 36'-6"
Beam 12'-10"
Draft 7'-6"
Displacement 30,500 lbs
Ballast 16,100 lbs
Sail Area 1,018 sq ft
