MARIQUITA (ladybird in Spanish), one of the most iconic yachts in the history of the sport, is probably the last 19 Metre in existence. With a career spanning over a century and involving something of a resurrection, hers is one of the great maritime stories.
In restoring this unique yacht her owners sought not only to save her but to recapture the ethos that prevailed when she was built in 1911 and raced shortly thereafter. As a racer she held a distinguished place within her class and won the King’s Cup.
