IOR One Ton Custom Sailboat "Outsider"
THE chance to own a piece of Yachting history.“Outsider” IOR One Ton – Ex Admirals Cupper – winning team.
“Outsider” IOR one ton designed by Judel Vrolijk build by Yachtwerft Wedel in Germany during the winter of 1980/1981. The boat was exhibited as breaking edge yacht design at the “Boot” boat show in Duesseldorf, Germany the spring of 1981 named at the time Duesselboot. She was specifically designed for the 1981 Admirals Cup. Build from Kevlar on Balsa core with a carbon rudder stock. She sailed in 1981 for the German team and placed third with the German team. Quite the achievement since the mast came down during the Channel Race and was repaired, re rigged overnight, adding a set of spreaders. Team boats were “Pinta” now in a museum in Germany and “Container”. She was again part of the German team in 1983 under the Name “Outsider” this time she won with the team.
She is unmolested, still with original tiller steering, original rig and engine (3 cylinder Bukh diesel still works great, 36hp) The extensive original deck hardware is all in place, all serviceable. The sails are worn but serviceable for day sailing. A porta potti is mounted. Most of the original pipe berth are with the boat. There are no serviceable electronics on board. The interior has currently no cushions, the boat was raced. Currently the topsides are stripped of old putty and paint, the deck has two soft spots but is otherwise solid. The hull has few spots along the sheer where water made its way into the inside. She needs work but is a beautiful shape.
