The six-meter class, a group of one-design racers that compete to this day, attracted designers such as Herreshoff, Fife and Sparkman and Stephens. Known for their elegant lines and nimble performance, the six-meter design remains a popular racing yacht.

Although Jill is technically a “restoration,” only the lead ballast remains from the original. The frames are steam-bent white oak, and the hull is double planked, with Alaskan yellow cedar on the inside and mahogany outside.

Since her construction, Jill has been campaigned in several races, with great success.
