If JFK chose MANITOU for her good looks and speed – who are we to argue ? Olin Stephens (Design No 99) drew her in 1936 from the same bloodline as DORADE and STORMY WEATHER for her first owner who wanted to win races – and she is at 62 ft a bigger boat than her sisters and offering more space and luxury below. Designed to sail well in both light airs and heavy weather; on the Mediterranean classic race circuit she has more than proven her capabilities in winning many regattas outright. The current owners have stopped at nothing in maintaining MANITOU to ensure she is probably as strong as she ever was and cosmetically immaculate.
