The "Ylliam" 5.5's - 28.04.2008 by Site Administrator

There has been seven 5.5 named "Ylliam" (the other numbers of the dynasty are other metrics or multihulls). "Ylliam" is the anagram of "Mailly", which is the name of the domain owned by the Firmenich family near Versoix, on the Leman lake.
"Ylliam X" is Z-11 (see SUI-011) Copponex/Corsier Port 1955 believably immediately sold to Charles Stern and become "Antiope VII".
"Ylliam XI" is Z-15 (see SUI-015)(and not XII as mentionned by mistake in the rating certificate), Copponex/Corsier Port 1956.
"Ylliam XII" is Z-23 (see SUI-023), Copponex/Corsier Port 1957.
"Ylliam XIII" is Z-32 (see SUI-032), Copponex/Corsier Port 1959.
"Ylliam XIV" is Z-36 (see SUI-036), Ohlson/Kungstor 1960.
"Ylliam XV" is believably Z-39 (see SUI-039), Copponex/Corsier Port 1960.
"Ylliam XVI" is Z-66 (see SUI-066), Hunt/Vator OY 1964.
Story reconstituted together with Pierre Girard and Noël Charmillot at the Musée du Léman on 03.11.06.

D'après Chapot (hôpital 21.12.91) : serait l'ex-Ylliam XI construit par lui-même chez Corsier-Port (source registre du chantier) .
Information - 17.09.2007 by Sebastien Schmidt
Checked with Noel Charmillod and Pierre Girard, this is not Ylliam IX (which was not a 5.5) but rightly Ylliam XI.
