Design 2122 - Marionette IV

This beautiful Admiral's Cupper was constructed using cold molded epoxy techniques. Her frames are of laminated Iroko and her planking is of three layers of mahogany. She was built by McGruer & Company, Ltd. of Scotland and launched in 1972. Drafting as shown was by the very talented Toshio Kihara.

The boat is in the smaller size range for Admiral's Cup competition. The design is a development of Cervantes IV, design #2061. The layout is comfortable due to her generous beam.

Here are the plans.

  1. My brother-in-law bought her (renamed High Noon) and we were reserve for the Irish A/C Team in 1975. Beautiful boat to sail. Happy memories, despite a dismal Fastnet, beset with problems.
