Owner Details & History

Project according to the International Third Rule America's Cup. This yacht was never built. No sail number authorized or issued. Marianne was a French project of Sociiete des Regates Rochelaises with a syndicate headed by Xavier Rouget Luchaire which had already bought Columbia. Marianne was designed by two young architects Guy Ribadeau Dumas and Philippe Briand, assisted by a computer program written by the Sociiete Marcel Dassault. The computer program was quite ambitious and interesting but the challenge was not carried on due to lack of funds.
