History

The “Matrero” was the first boat designed by German Frers after his time at Sparkman & Stephens in 1970. It was designed as a 2Ton for the IOR formula.  Her construction was carried out in 6 months. The hull was one of the firsts built in RFP in Argentina.  The deck was made of laminated wood.

 As soon as she was launched she was taken to England to participate in the 1971 Admirals Cup where she was considered the fastest 50 feet.  She then ran all the editions up to 1979, including the fateful Fastnet, which she managed to finish.

 Throughout its more than 50 years of history, it has never stopped running.  Participated among others in the Cowes Week, Onion Patch, Copa del Rey, Colon ’92 Regatta, Buenos Aires – Rio de Janeiro Regatta, Rolex Ilhabela Sailing Week, Rio Circuit, Rolex Atlantico Sur Circuit, Buenos Aires – Mar del Plata Regatta, South American Oceanic Championship, Recife – Fernando de Noronha Regatta.

 In 2018 it underwent a profound enhancement respecting its original plans from 1970

 and even the original colors of it! Taking out the sails, engine and instruments, the boat is 100% original.
