MARIGAN, launched in 1989 as MOLITA (Little Molly after his daughter), was designed by Charles Livingstone for his own personal use and built by Bond of Birkenhead. Charles Livingstone was extremely successful in the design of small rates – his 2 ½ Rater MODWEN was one of the few to beat the famous Herreshoff WENOAH on the Clyde. Livingstone incidentally was later to serve on the English committee for the America’s Cup.

MARIGAN was apparently originally equipped with a Kelvin 2.5 hp engine, she was re-engined in 1936. Moreover in the late 30’s her rig was transformed to that of a Marconi ketch. At that time she was sailed by a crew of 4, all of whom were quartered in the forward cabin.

MARIGAN was designed as a fast cruiser and her undoubted appeal inspired her current owner to rescue her. In doing so he has not just breathed new life into her. Every aspect is impressive - his aim to sail the Classic Circuit with family and friends on a boat without weakness in her structure which includes a solid teak deck.

MARIGAN is therefore no delicate 100 year old museum piece but a true vintage yacht to be sailed hard as originally intended. A gaff rig with top sail will always inspire but MARIGAN has an almost natural quality about her as she sails. She is fast, strong and beautiful.

When the present owner purchased the yacht she was in need of serious attention but worth a thorough rebuilt with the aim she last another 100 years and certainly stronger than originally built. Having now been fully restored and reconverted to her original gaff rig; she is in splendid condition. Launched in 2006 under her new name MARIGAN, in honour of her present owner’s four daughters Morgan, Marine, Ocean and Logan, she has already gone to win the Spanish championships for vintage yachts both in 2009 and 2010.
