Broker's Comments

A famous classic racing yacht with genuine pedigree. The first offshore racer designed to race through gales rather than heave-to, she has class wins in the Fastnet, Sydney-Hobart and Bermuda races to name but a few. She is still racing today with many recent successes. With stacks of stowage and a comfortable, light interior, she also makes a great cruiser and indeed has been cruised extensively. In the same ownership since 1971, she is well sorted and has been regularly upgraded and maintained to the highest standards
