Yacht: Irene VIII

Submit Information on this Yacht


“In this yacht we have an example of a very bold idea that succeeded, so marking the owner and designer as men of genius. A racer stands or falls by her ability as a racer, but the owner of this yacht considered her from a cruising point of view throughout and yet in spite of this her racing record is the finest in Sweden and Finland. This yacht’s record is one of the finest that can be put forward for the present International Rule for in her we have the qualities of a racer and cruiser so successfully blended, that she is a very fine vessel whether considered as a cruiser or a racer, for she is both!” Uffa Fox, 1935.
