Design 1463 - Cairu III


I am not exactly sure why this design was assigned a new job number. She is an exact copy of Figaro, design #1107 in terms of shape. It does look like her construction plan was modified slightly. The boat was built for a repeat client who previously owned a Brasil Class, design #509, named Cairu II.

The boat was built by Yachting Brasiliero of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The year was 1960, five years after Figaro's launch.

  1. This boat was build not by Yachtig Brasileiro but by Roberto Funk, in Porto Alegre, Brazil
