Design 2028 - Jakaranda

This big yawl was designed to the I.O.R. Rule. She was built by Franz Maas of Breskens, Holland and launched in 1970. Her construction is interesting: stainless steel sub-frame encapsulated in foam and fiberglass. The hull and deck are cored with Airex foam. I wonder how this has held up over the years.

Here are the plans.

And an article from Yachting World magazine from 1970. Please double click for zoom.
