Design 13 - Bob Kat II

Bobkat II (US54) was built by Henry Nevins of City Island, New York and launched in 1931. She was the sixth 6-meter designed by the young Sparkman & Stephens. Built for Robert Meyer, the boat was named after he and his wife, Katherine (Bob + Kat). Bobkat II was part of the famous American team that went to England for the 1932 British American Team Races. The other members of the team were Lucie (US55), Jill (US56) and Nancy (US60). Bobkat II was restored to her original racing configuration at Cantieri dell Argentario in Porto Santo Stefano, Italy. She is currently for sale (€75,000).

Here is the construction plan. We don't seem to have a sail plan scanned and on hand.
