  1. The Mercedes Clippers were designed in the late 1970s, mostly built between 1977 and 1983, but at least two were put in the water around 1990. About 20 to 25 total seem to have been built. A fairly well known New Zealand boatbuilder did a survey of one of them around 2016 and commented that (designer Mick Elmes) “... designed nice boats that perform well.” Also that the particular (1990) hull he checked was fair, well finished and he saw no reason to be concerned. Elmes was reported in 2007 to have thrown away the plans years earlier and couldn’t by then say much about his design details
