Design 1821 - Palawan III

Palawan III was the third S&S yacht designed and built for Thomas Watson, Jr. of IBM. She was constructed of aluminum by Robert E. Derecktor of Mamaroneck, NY and launched in the spring of 1966. At the time, the separate keel (with trim tab) and rudder was a feature of this design. The hull was based on tank model testing.

The boat is about to come on the brokerage market. Please contact us for information.

Here are the plans.
