Design 231 - Michel II


The 6-meter Michel II was designed for the engineer, Dr. Hans "Polly" Collignon of Berlin. She was constructed of wood by Abeking & Rasmussen of Germany and launched in 1938. Her placement within the group of Sparkman & Stephens pre-war 6-meters is of interest as she was designed between the 6-meters Lulu and Fun, designs #179 and #180 and Djinn and Goose, designs #238 and #243, respectively.

The boat originally made her home on Lake Constance (also known as Bodensee) where she resides to this day to the best of my knowledge. Her sail number is G37.

Here is the construction plan.


Principal Dimensions
LOA 36'-11"
LWL 23'-4"
Beam 6'-0"

Sail Area 469 sq ft
