I believe there were 4 boats built from the Supernova tooling, 'Supernova' herself being the first with a distinctive heavily cambered deck rather than a coachroof . She was built to represent England in the 1974 World Half Ton Cup Championship.
Foam sandwich construction, reputed strong hull, Resprayed 1997. Lead Keel. Tuff Luff toil cradle.


Total # of berths 6
No. of single berths 6
Cabin(s) 1

She has 4 Pipe cots, and two settee berths. She could be fitted out to be more of a cruiser, however she should still be a competitive yacht, challenging and fun to race.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This is a great boat if you are interested in some good racing. Some of these vessels were fitted out as racer/cruisers. This one however has got a good racing pedigree and her owners have maintained her as a racing yacht.
Typical half tonner lines, this yacht offers a chance to get into the racing scene without breaking the bank.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
