Design 1891 - Iorana

Iorana was constructed of wood by Abeking & Rasmussen of Germany. She was launched in 1969. She's a beauty. It's too bad this is the only image we possess of her. This is a powerful boat. Just look at her ballast to displacement ratio, her deep draft and large amount of sail area.

Of note, here we have an early example of the installation of a Hundested controllable pitch propeller.

The following are some designer's remarks from Rod Stephens. Please double click for zoom.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 63'-2"
LWL 45'-5"
Beam 14'-10"
Draft 9'-3"
Displacement 67,772 lbs
Ballast 32,000 lbs (outside) 1,000 lbs (inside)
Sail Area 1,815 sq ft
