A very fine example of highly talented and revered French yacht designer André Mauric’s work, ANTEREN has been given a modern twist par excellence by some of the best names in the crossover between traditional and modern woodworking skills and rig design. Very early in his career, Mauric found a sweet spot in the design of an easily-driven, light on the helm, relatively light displacement hull form that he continued to refine - successfully on the race course - into the 1960s. Adding modern short-handed sailing systems and comforts down below to an already thoroughbred hull has resulted in a most enticing blend that many present day designers strive to emulate, yet ANTEREN remains a cut above.

ANTEREN was launched at Marseilles in 1963 as GLEN ELLEN II for Maurice Tian, who would go on to become President of Société Nautique de Marseille in the 1970s, and whose family continue the GLEN ELLEN naming to this day (now into the XXs) for their high performance Marseilles-based yachts.

The 1963 edition of Lloyd's Register of Yachts describes GLEN ELLEN II as an International Rule 10-Metre, but her relatively light displacement and house suggest that it's more likely she would fit the International Cruiser Racer Rule devised in the late 1940s by Bjarne Aas (Norway) and James McGruer (Scotland), in which case she may be the only 'C/R' built with a separate rudder - and this well in advance of Olin Stephens's 'breakthrough' metre boat, the America's Cup 12-Metre INTREPID.

Mauric’s earliest, pre-World War Two racing yacht designs were to the fascinating French 'Chemin de Fer' Rule, devised in opposition to the International Rule to create performance yachts light enough to be transported by rail. Very early in his career, Mauric found a sweet spot in the design of the easily-driven, light on the helm, relatively light displacement hull form this rule encouraged, and he continued to hold to these principles, even when designing to other rules – sometimes even with little regard to convention, for example in his successful mid 1960’s designs for racing under the RORC Rule.

ANTEREN’s hull form is in effect a scaled-up version of Mauric's highly successful One-Ton Cup GIRALDIA design. Guy Dewavrin's ALCATRAZ to these drawings, with Alain Gliksman at the helm, was RORC Class III overall champion in 1965, and in 1966 won the Cowes-Dinard race and was top European boat in 3rd place at that year's One Ton Cup. The GIRALDIA design in turn owed its provenance to Mauric's 1939 design for his own French 5-Metre Rule yacht CYNTHIA. The longitudinally shorter than traditional ballast keel fairing and separate rudder were nothing unusual in model yacht racing design back to the 19th Century, but in the early 1960s still rather radical at full size in a seagoing yacht. The result is a yacht that is incredibly light and well balanced on the helm. This, married to the surefootedness of a still relatively long keel by present day standards, together with a very modern and efficient rig (designed - with short handed sailing by a couple in mind - by people who really understand such things and use them to the hilt in Grand Prix yacht racing, for example in the Fast 40 Class), makes ANTEREN a very enticing package indeed for performance cruising and racing.

Purchased by the present owners at Saint-Tropez in 2010, she has subsequently received attention in the best of hands at Fairlie Restorations, and Shemara Refit (described in detail below) - and it really shows.



Despite being already known from a very young age as a multi-faceted, highly-talented yacht designer, André Mauric’s day job before the Second World War was managing shipyards. His career as an independent yacht designer didn’t commence until 1945, and what a career it was to become with notable designs including: 1963 ALCATRAZ, RORC Class III overall champion in 1965; 1970 FRANCE, America’s Cup 12mR for Baron Bich; 1973 IMPENSABLE, Half-Ton Cup winner; 1973 PEN DUICK VI, Eric Tabarly’s 1976 Transat winner; 1977 FRANCE II America’s Cup 12mR for Baron Bich; Michel Malinovsky’s various ocean racing KRITERS; 1985 ALCYONE turbosail-hybrid monocat for Jacques Cousteau.
