In 1935, was the Jubilee year of the reign of the late King George V, the “first yachtsman of the Empire,”. In that year the Jubilee design was commissioned.
The key design elements that were specified in the commission were:
- Boat must be powerful and stable design, so as to be able to safely withstand big seas and strong winds.
- The boat must be of handy size, so as to facilitate easy slipping and launching, and beaching if necessary.
- The design was to be strictly one design.
The measurements therefore decided on were:
- Length overall 18 ft
- Length waterline 16 ft
- Draft (board up) 1 ft 4 in
