The Z39, by Bakewell-White Yacht Design took out the Yachting New Zealand One Design Competition run by Yachting New Zealand in conjunction with the Keelboat and Offshore Racing Committee in 2003. A panel of 7 judges deemed all ten entries in the competition to be of excellent quality however, they felt the Bakewell-White design best matched the design brief. Yachting New Zealand called for a Monohull Keelboat which was suitable for a New Zealand National One Design class, between 11.5m - 12.5m in length, suitable for offshore racing, with the ability to be owner driven while also fitting the bill for the family holiday.
