Design 1884-C1 & C2 - Big Blue and Peloha

Design 1884-C2 - Peloha

Two boats were built to this design. The design is really a near sister of design 1791, Djinn with some modifications. The boats were constructed of steel and built by the G. deVries Lentsch shipyard in Nieuwendam, Holland. They were launched in 1967 and '68 respectively.

Here is the general arrangement.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 62'-3"
LWL 47'-0"
Beam 16'-0"
Draft 6'-0"
Displacement 77,000 lbs
Ballast 10,000 lbs
Sail Area 1,433 sq ft

  1. Good to see her again. We owned Peloha from 94-97 when we found her she was named Ysas and had been pretty battered in a hurricane in the Caribbean. We spent 18 months on the hard putting her back together and lived aboard full time. We eventually sold her to a gentleman in North Palm Beach and I have been unable to locate her since. Have many pictures of the restoration if you need any for the archives.
