IOR 3/4 ton. We understand there were an additional three "cruising" models built with a shorter mast but same fore triangle (pictured). One of these was sailed by South African yachtsman Geoff Hilton-Barber, a blind sailor who was the first to sail an ocean solo. He sailed solo from South Africa to Australia. Thank you to Arpad Nagy for additional info and the photo.
