History

"Marianne has proved to be such a wanderful little vessel that she has formed the basis for several fine cruisers...The longer we look at the plans of Marianne, the more we envy Carl Lindmann (first owner) and the more we realize that for such type of craft it would be difficult indeed to find a better ship. She has faithfully carried her owner through storm and shine and he is indeed a fortunate man to posses a lovely example of present day tendency in small cruising craft....She combines speed, sea-keeping ability and comfort in a wonderful manner..."
These words were written in 1937 in a book, Racing, Cruising and Design, by Uffa Fox, possibly the greatest yachting historian and one of the greatest yacht designers of the 20th Century.
