Int. 10-Metre Rita IV

Rita IV | Int. 10-Metre, design William Fife 1926

2012 | Another great project by Absolute Restorations. Built by Thornycroft, Rita IV was commissioned by H.M. The King of Denmark. After her competitive life Rita was sold to the USA where she spent her life cruising. In 2012 she was shipped to Absolute Restorations in Setubal for an extensive restoration. Touchwood is the timber supplier for this prestigious project. We were lucky to source a suberb veneer grade Sipo mahogany log of 11 metre length with was quarter sawn to specification for the hull planking and superstructures. The supply scope further includes Sitka spruce for the spars, stringers, shelf and deck beams and indeed also the teak for he deck. Rita is due for launch in 2014. For more information please check:
