Design 2381-C1 and C2 - Unknown and Ngaruru


Earlier I posted an article about design #2381, racing yacht Challenge. This design was also utilized for two other boats, designs #2381-C1 and C2. Let's start with design #2381-C2. She is a near duplicate of Challenge, but built of wood using cold-molded Epoxy methods by Muir of New Zealand and launched in 1980. She is named Ngaruru and is seen in these images.


Principal Dimensions for #2381-C2
LOA 45'-8"
LWL 36'-7"
Beam 14'-4"
Draft 8'-0"
Displacement 25,729 lbs
Ballast 10,000 lbs
Sail Area 1,069 sq ft

Design #2381-C1 was a completely different boat with a cruising interior. The only things that were utilized about this design were the hull, appendages and rig. Even the drive-line is different. Her transom was changed slightly which resulted in a longer overall length but otherwise her hull is identical. I can't find a record of her name but she was built of aluminum by McMullen & Wing, Ltd. of New Zealand. She was also launched in 1980.

Here are the plans.


Principal Dimensions for #2381-C1

Sail Area 1,062 sq ft
