10mR William Fife III 1926/2015

back to list


For his third 10mR, and fourth RITA, King Christian X commissioned this beautiful design from Scotland's William Fife III for building by English ship and boat builders John I. Thornycroft & Co. Could the International Rule 10-Metre be the most perfect of all the Metric classes? 58 ft/ 18 m of overall length is enough to wow - if RITA IV doesn't already do that by looks - yet handy enough to sail and race with family and friends. And RITA IV brings that extra dimension of being a William Fife design, and, what's more, a former Royal Yacht. Rescued from oblivion by a passionate syndicate of died-in-the-wool yacht racing aficionados and superbly restored at David Viera and Miguel Ministro's Absolute Yachts, the result is structurally sound, fair, fast, and a true delight to the eye - in fact the definition of 'Fast and Bonnie'.
