Sun Bird V and Miyakadori - Design 2223 and 2223-C1

Just this past Saturday I posted an article about Galvana, design 2223. Actually Galvana was the third of the series. Here's an image of the first to be built to this design, Sun Bird V, coming out of the shed. Two boats were built for Japanese Admiral's Cup teams by the Kato Boat Company of Yokosuka City, Japan and launched in 1974 and '75 respectively.

Here's the other sister, Miyakadori, design #2223-C1.
