Design 2126 - Shamrock

Shamrock was designed and built for Roy E. Disney, the nephew of Disney founder Walt Disney. It was his first major yacht and the boat he sailed in his first Transpac Race. More would follow but his future boats yachts would be "sleds" (and designed by California designers).

Shamrock was built by Driscoll Custom Boats of San Diego, California. She was constructed of aluminum and was launched in 1973. She is clearly a cruiser and racer with shoal draft and without question very Swan-like. I'm sorry we don't have any images of her.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

LOA 52'-0"
LWL 37'-6"
Beam 14'-6"
Draft 6'-0" (board up) 9'-0" (board down)
Displacement 29,980 lbs
Ballast 14,000 lbs
Sail Area 761 sq ft
