Mariquita - Large Format Marine Art (140x97 cm)

Mariquita dates back to some of the grandest days of yachting. She is one of the most historic and interesting of the Fife designs, a 19 Metre, 125ft LOA launched in 1911. Designed and built by William Fife III, she was launched in Fairlie on the Clyde in Scotland in May 1911. She was part of a new generation of racing yachts. 


Mariquita was restored over two years at Fairlie Restorations in the UK in 2004, as the ravages of time had eaten deep into her structure of steel and Honduras mahogany planking, but at their hands the standard of build and finish surpassed her original launch day in 1911.

Mariquita is the only surviving 19 Metre Class yacht and the oldest of only four remaining of the metre class ‘big class’, the others being the 23 Metre Class ‘Astra’ (1928), ‘Cambria’ (1928), ‘Candida’ (1929), (more about Mariquita).


Mariquita is one of the large format tall ship paintings in my Marine Art collection. The painting depicts Mariquita in stormy weather racing ahead.  The background of this painting is created in a free style mix of water and paint to create a dramatic scene. The boat is mostly painted by brush and the mast and the sails are created by pallet knife. It is painted with free strokes of a pallet knife and brushes. It is acrylic on canvas.


Modern, contemporary.
