2062-C1 - Sunbird II

As far as we can tell, the Endo Corporation of Japan was a 6-time repeat client, ordering 1/4, 1/2 and 1-tonner racing yachts in the early 1970s. Most of not all were built by the Kato Boat Company of Yokosuka City, Japan in either wood or fiberglass. Here we have the one-tonner Sunbird II. She was built of wood and launched in 1970. She is based on a very well utilized design, #2062, but with modifications (optimizations) to her rig, keel and rudder.

Here's a look at her shape.

LOA 38'-7"
