History: The second boat commissioned by Bruce Owen named Scoundrel, with the first, GBR 86 Scoundrel, designed by Pelle Pettersen. This boat was designed by Ian Howlett and built by Paul Litton. Bruce Owen was very successful with both of his Scoundrels, winning the International 6 Meter World Championships twice - once in each Scoundrel, 1987 and 1997 respectively. Mr. Owen also won the 1994 Europeans Championships with Scoundrel at La Benodet. The boat has been active and well traveled, placing 7th of 24 at the 2005 Worlds in Sandhamn, 7th of 23 at the 2007 Worlds at Cowes and 2nd of 11 at the 2009 Worlds in Newport, R.I. Scoundrel was sold to the St Francis Yacht Club Syndicate in June 2016. She made her St Francis YC Team debut in Brunnen at the 2016 European Championships with Eliza Richartz at the helm with an all-female crew, placing 6th of 15. The boat moved back to San Francisco to take part in the 2016 North American Championships, and competed again under Eliza Richartz in the 2017 Worlds in Vancouver, placing 14th of 24 . Matt Brooks assumed sole ownership and took the boat to the 2018 European Championships where she finished 5th of 18 with Jamie Hilton at the helm. After a few years away from international competition, Jamie Hilton took the boat to San Xenxo in Spain for the 2022 Worlds, placing 7th of 22. In 2023 Jamie Hilton and team added a 2nd World Championship to Scoundrel's record by winning at Cowes, U.K. The boat is now for sale in Bristol, Rhode Island at the USMMA Sailing Foundation and ready to go for the 2025 World Championships at Seawanhaka Yacht Club.
