Broker's Comments

This boat was was purchased in 2020 for the purpose of IRC and offshore racing and considerable investments were made to her with new sails, electronics and standing rigging.

Work was done to the boat to comply with the Offshore Racing Council (ORC) Cat 3 making her suitable for JOG racing.

She has a full 2020 survey and also keel/rudder survey demanded by the RORC/JOG special regulations 2022.

Endorsed IRC rating 0.801 fully measured and weighed.

She looks a lovely example of one of these pretty and sought-after boats - well known for their sea keeping ability and performance.

This one comes with particularly new, exotic sails (some yet unused!) and some very nice, very recent electronics.

If you're a fan of this type of boat and want to pick one up that looks in nice shape and has had the money spent in the right places, then I'd recommend a speedy look at this one!
