MARIQUITA

1911 - 38.1 m - William Fife & Son - 2 750 000

Overview


After careful dismantling and restoration, it was possible to reinstate virtually all of the original owner and guest accommodation. Consistent with her racing pedigree, the interior design is restrained with weight­saving open deckheads which reveal the structure. Only a few changes have been made, including the addition of modern services and some enhancements such as a shower in the owner’s bathroom replacing the original sunken bath whose space is now given over to the engine room.

As in 1911 MARIQUITA’s principal accommodation consists of a gracious saloon with dining table, fitted desk and sofa. A passageway aft of this leads to the main companionway, a starboard single cabin and a port single cabin. The twin cabin aft has its own direct deck access via a dog house where protected seating allows outside visibility.

MARIQUITA is one of the most iconic yachts in the history of the sport and her career spanning over a century is one of the great maritime stories.Designed and built for industrialist Arthur Stothert by William Fife III, she was launched in 1911 at Fairlie on the Clyde in Scotland. MARIQUITA combined Fife’s design with the high build quality of his celebrated yard.

The 19m Class is slightly smaller than most Big Class cutters and fulfilled the aspiration to have a matched class of big cutters. As a racer she held a distinguished place within her class and won the King’s Cup.It took 3 years at Fairlie Restorations to restore the yacht to match the original structural requirements of the class. She was rebuilt to Lloyd’s Register and to her 1912 configuration which provided some speed enhancement over the initial design of 1911.
