Cin Cin was built by the highly acclaimed german boatyard
De Dood in Bremen, with A&R and Matthießen & Paulsen
certainly the best german quality in the 1950's and 1960's.
She was conceived as a racer/cruiser for Conny De Dood
himself by William Tripp and built as Conny's second
Esprit together with a sister named Christine with a slightly
different layout. She features all the typical Tripp trademarks
as wide stern, high freeboard and strong sheer and was
campaigned successfully by the keen racing sailor Conny De
She has an all original aluminium mast with custom made
halyard winches on wooden appliances, a wooden boom and
wooden spreaders which is a interesting setup typical for the
first experiments with aluminium rigs. Cin Cin is cutter
rigged which makes her a pleasure to sail shorthanded which
the current owner has done exstensivly throughout the
Furthermore the ship has an extremely clever layout with the
companionway to starbord leaving room for a proper aft
cabin. This way the boat is extremely roomy for her size and
can comfortably sleep six people.
The boat was designed as 7KR in germany, but could also
classify as Class 'E' under the CCA or Class II under the
RORC. Therfore several more boats of the Esprit type have
been built and successfully cruised and raced on both sides
of the atlanic. In the United States Force Seven achieved a
certain fame surviving a hurricane with wind up to 80 knots.
Her tale was widely told by the american magazine Yachting
and the inarrestible Adlard Coles in his famous book “Heavy
Weather Sailing”. Very important proved the cabin entrance
which is not entered directly from the cockpit.
Well, the original is Cin Cin!
