Miranda II was built in 1937 by the Costaguta Shipyard in Italy, a yard renowned for building some of the finest racing yachts. In her early years Miranda II was one of the top boats in the Italian 6 Metre fleet.
The current owner found Miranda II in Milan. After a long period of being stored in a shed, she was in a poor state and they had her shipped to a yard in Suffolk, UK for a full restoration. The work undertaken in 2011/12 was extensive including casting a new lead keel and bolts, new frames where needed and strengthening the boat with internal bulk heads around the mast and rudder post. Once the work was completed, she was fitted with new deck gear, a set of Dacron sails built by Suffolk Sail Makers.
Since 2012 Miranda II has enjoyed a relaxed way of life sailing in Malta, taking part in a handful of classic regattas. Sat on a custom made cradle she is ready for either cruising or international 6 Metre regatta racing.
