Broker's Comments

This Biscay 36 was hull No. 1 when Falmouth Boat Construction started to build these boats. She went through a 12 month refit at the Falmouth Boat Construction yard in 2017/18 in preparation for taking part in the Golden Globe Race which started in June 2018. After crossing the Atlantic, the owner had to retire from the race due to injuries.
The rig, spars, sails, fittings and much more where replaced during the refit and fitted with the race's mandatory safety equipment.
The boat is sold without the green vinyl and comes with a berth in Mindelo paid up until end of April.

These boat details are subject to contract.
