Please go to http://www.sandemanyachtcompany.co.uk/yacht/175/sparkman-and-stephens-43-ft-sloop-1963 for a full description of CLARION OF WIGHT
CLARION OF WIGHT was built in 1963 at Clare Lallow in Cowes to designs by Sparkman & Stephens. She was thought at the time to be very light and of the original 10 tonnes displacement, 4 ½ tonnes was in the lead keel. In her launch year she was selected for the British Admirals Cup Team, going on to win the Fastnet race with the British team winning the Admirals Cup - she proved herself a magnificent all-rounder!
CLARION was launched as a state of the art offshore racer, thankfully at time when beautiful boats were still a by-product of the designer's quest for speed and interiors could still be friendly and accommodating - she remains much loved by her owners and certainly fast enough to hold her own in a modern or classic fleet. For many her name and pedigree will speak for themselves.
