Known Restoration History:
Malabar II and Malabar III were built from the same lines, and were almost identical except in their accommodations and ballast. Malabar III has a slightly different arrangement with the port quarter berth has a bulkhead around it to make a small, private after stateroom. Malabar III has no engine, but was provided with a shaft log and propeller aperture (closed in) in case future owners wanted power. Sail plans for II and III are identical.
