Design 2131 and 2131-C1 - Inca and Takeda

Two sisterships were built to this design. The boats were constructed of aluminum by Steel Yachts & Launches of Aukland, New Zealand and launched in 1973. Designed under the I.O.R. Mark III Rule, the boats were designed for Southern Cross and Admiral's Cup competition.

Here's a very brief newspaper article. Please double click for zoom.

  1. Olin was deep into his Tiny Keel Period, though he was very concerned about wetted surface area from the beginning. I have always thought this was a result of growing up on Long Island Sound. I've often wondered what his keels would be like had he come of age racing in the English Channel.
