Broker's Comments

Every once in a while I get aboard a boat and she makes me just want to go sailing! This is one of them! Obviously me and lots of sailing friends too.

Fantastic, Briand design, built of Carbon composite in Rhode Island, USA she was built for IOR 50 and was part of the winning (French) Admirals Cup team of 1991.

Having found her way into British ownership in 2010 she underwent a refit in 2016 ready for the Nab Tower race where she came first over the line in her class. She was lifted ashore that winter and has remained ashore in a good yard awaiting her next adventure. I advise viewing... we have a tall ladder!
