Description

An unusually long waterline length for a classic 44 footer gains this enchanting Max Oertz canoe-sterned bermudan cutter the pace and space of a much larger yacht, offering accommodation in three cabins plus saloon. Oertz was a clever designer and MARIANNA’s recent owners have cared for her needs. Apart from carrying the design pedigree of the man tasked to design and build fast yachts for Kaiser Wilhelm, MARIANNA’s rig was re-designed in the mid-1950s by Jack Laurent Giles for ease of handling by shipyard apprentices in the sail training phase of her fascinating story. She remains today easy to sail by a couple and to race by family and friends.

History

MARIANNA’s history is well documented: from her track record of racing in Germany in the 1920s to her arrival in the UK in 1936; her career as a sail training vessel on the north east coast of England and east coast of Scotland; dotage years on the west coast of Scotland; her complete restoration in North Wales in the mid-1990s, and her many cruises and Classic Regattas in the North Sea and English Channel since then.

Designed by the Kaiser Wilhem's naval architect Max Oertz (1871-1929), whose canoe sterns were perhaps influenced by training in Scandinavia, and launched as MARIANNE, she was an advanced boat for her time, with spacious accommodation and originally an aerodynamically pre-bent mast.

After winning the North Sea Race and Kiel Week in the late 1920s, she was brought to England and given her present name by Colchester-based Royal Yacht Squadron member and founder of the Royal Artillery Yacht Club, Major Ralph Blewitt, DSO. MARIANNA became the family cruiser-racer. That family included his daughter, Mary Blewitt (1923-2000), who became an in demand ocean racing navigator, and wrote one of the most popular - and still in print - books on celestial navigation. Under her married name, Mary Pera, she was one of the the leading authorities on the yacht racing rules: an International Judge, Chairman of the IYRU (now World Sailing) Racing Rules Committee, and sometime Secretary of the Royal Ocean Racing Club.

In 1950 MARIANNA was purchased by the Sunderland shipbuilders Sir James Laing & Sons, and began a career as an apprentices sail training vessel on the north English and Scottish east coasts. Her rig, originally with a big mainsail and small jib, was re-designed to the present masthead cutter configuration by Laurent Giles in 1954.

From 1970 MARIANNA returned to private ownership at Sunderland, and from 1973 was owned on the Clyde and west coast of Scotland. Following substantial restoration in North Wales between 1994 and 1996, in 2000 MARIANNA was listed in Classic Boat’s 'Top 100'.

In current Belgian ownership since 2007 she has been maintained and thoroughly upgraded - including a new lead keel and new teak on plywood deck - while based in the Netherlands. In 2013 MARIANNA again featured in Classic Boat's 'Top 250', and she continues to attend classic rallies and regattas in the low countries and the English Channel.
