Carbon-Nomex pre-preg construction by one of the most well respected offshore racing and cruising boat builders in France. JMV, builders of Mari Cha 4, and many of the most well known Vendee Globe Open 60's.

All the features that one would expect of this type of yacht. Four watertight bulkheads and crash box forward. Stability and performance is augmented by 1700 litres of water ballast each side split into several tanks.

Designed as an offshore single/shorthanded racer/cruiser, the accomodation is lightweight, minimal by cruising standards but highly functional and well thought out for the task. For someone looking to cruise, one would describe the boat as a passage maker, rather than comfortable cruising. However, it's minimal fit out does mean that there is plenty of scope with ease for modification for someone looking to add some creature comforts.

Forward of the mast there is a large sail compartment which could be fitted out with pipe cots to boost the number of berths onboard.

Behind a third watertight bulkhead there is a large heads compartment and drying/hanging locker that extends accross the entire beam of the yacht.

The main accommodation is between the mast and the companionway and has full standing headroom. The forward end is taken up by the galley which isn't crammed into a small area which is the norm on this type of yacht. There is space for a new owner to play with the arrangement here, replace the existing single-burner with something larger if they so wished for example. The rest of the cabin is dominated by a modern navigation pod and chart table seat in the classic Open 60 style. Outboard each side are bunks above the side saddle water ballast tanks.

Under the cockpit there is more storage space and access through a central hatch through the aft watertight bulkhead into the steering compartment. This area can be accessed from the deck and so used as a lazarette for storage.

Broker's Comments

This beautiful and probably most refined of the Open 40 racing designs from Group Finot was designed and built for the 2001 Transat Jacques Vabres. In 2002 she was purchased, refitted and renamed Spirit of Yukoh for the 2003 Around Alone Race. Finishing first in class she won the Harry Mitchell award proving to be the fastest among the Open 40's. In 2005 she undertook a major refit which was carried out by Open 60 preparateur/project manager Brian Harris at the Maine Yacht centre. She was fitted with a state of the art interior pod and all the ships systems and equipment were renewed. Sails and handling equipment were upgraded again in 2007 again to a high standard and specification.

Anasazi Girl departed from the North Eastern United States in late 2006 and sailed non-stop to Cape Town. She then circumnavigated Cape Town to Cape Town with one stop in New Zealand. The last leg from Cape Town was carried out with a short stop in Bermuda.

An inspection would be highly recommended and wouldn't disappoint.
