Broker's Comments

On stepping aboard this older generation Open 60 it is clear she has had a very well maintained past and wisely spent budget.
Originally 'Team Group 4' under Mike Golding she then completed the 2004/5 Vendee Globe as 'Hellomoto' under Conrad Humphreys backed by Motorola, she then benefited from a full refit in 2006/7 as 'Aviva' under Dee Caffari.

She appears younger than she is in her looks and condition with no visible damage to the areas where you might expect it.

We have sourced a possible rig replacement for her and she could be put together as a serious contender for the upcoming 2 division event, VELUX 5 OCEANS RACE 2010-11, having had a good track record in the past for miles under the keel in top flight IMOCA Open 60 racing events.
