Petán was designed by Willian Fife and built at the Hermanos Sagredo shipyard in Bilbao.
Her hull design is believed to be the latest First Rule 8m yacht and is recognized to be hydrodynamically as good as a yacht could be at the time. She does not ride waves, but she rides through them and does not produce a wake until near the maximum speed of her hull.
The characteristic Fife motorhome is believed to be one of her speed secrets.
Petán had the most innovative deck design of all First Rule yachts. She wears a Marconi Bermudan platform. As originally drawn, she carries 1,248 square feet of sail on a 42-foot mast and 35-foot jib.
She built for a Spanish aristocrat named Zubiría Marquesa, who she gave the distinctive original name Sogalinda VII. Petan participated in many classic boat races in her area, some of them against the Spanish king, Alfonso XIII. I have some historical photos and journalistic references of the ship.
