Broker's Comments

What a boat for the money. No, she’s not a boat for the wife and kids, this one is definitely for the buoys, with the ability to lift the silverware.
She is sparse down below but clean and comfortable compared to some offshore racing yachts.
She was built regardless of cost with a titanium mast and stanchion posts, a high-tech epoxy hull and deck. She has a deep fin lead keel. The stern gives a clean run for the surfing downwind legs.
There were many modifications done in 1994, under the supervision of the designer, Ed Dubois. These included a new keel fitted, new rudder, an extended modified stern and coach roof plus a new engine. For the last decade she has done very little due to the owners business commitments. Now she has recently been refurbished, ready for a successful forthcoming season.
The major criticism is that she does not come with soft furnishings, fitted carpets or curtains but what an exciting boat.
