Project of the Bacchant Sailing Boat

About

Project coming from the archives of Uffa Fox and never entered the commercial circuit depicting the floor plates and sections of the boat Bacchant. Measures: Cm 108.7 x 49 H - inches 42.79 x 19.29 H. Bacchant is a racing boat, built by the Plym shipyard in Stockholm designed by Knud Reimers for Eric Lundberg and lauched in Stockholm in 1936. Uffa Fox was born in the Isle of Wight in 1898 and grew up in Cowes. At the end of the school he began an apprenticeship for seven years at the Saunders SE shipyards, during which time he learned the rudiments of sailing, shipbuilding and design. Uffa Fox was a brilliant designer but also a lover of adventures at sea. During the Second World War he conceived the idea of the Airborne Lifeboat, a ship loaded under the planes to be launched by parachute to survivors of aircraft in distress. Uffa has been married three times. His first wife was Alma, who has played an important role in his career. In 1941 he married Cherry and then in 1956 a French lady, Yvonne Bernard, a curious fact because the lady did not speak English, nor Uffa spoke French.
