In 1969, a request from the Royal Dutch Yachting Union was made for a new, offshore one design class. The PION was selected over several other designs submitted.As best as can be determined, the dimensions listed here are for the orignal design.Having been built by a number of different yards over the years, strict uniformity has not been maintained though class racing still continues.
