MIQUETTE is a classic sailing yacht. She is 72 ft. long and has been designed by David Pedrick in 1986. Pedrick is still running his office in Newport/RI, USA. After having lost the America‘s Cup for the first time ever in 1983 to AUSTRALIA II with her new and fa-mous wing keel, Pedrick became part of the design team for the US yacht STARS & STRIPES. He was mainly responsable for her keel which also was a wing keel.
Dennis Conner, who had lost the cup in 1983, won it back in Fremantle/Western Australia in 1987. As MIQUETTE, formerly named UNFURLED, was designed in 1986 David Pedrick was the first ever to attach a winged keel to a one off yacht. UNFURLED has been built by the famous shipyard DERECKTOR in New York.
She has been purchased by her current owner back in 2014 in Singapore and he has sailed her to the Mediterranean until May 2016. The yacht has always been very well maintained, she is now ready to sail even for the longest voyage.
