Yacht description

She was built in 2000 by Carroll Marine in the USA and campaigned professionally by Team Chessie Racing for 3 seasons (2000-2002).
She is perfect for serious handicap offshore or inshore racing in both ORCi & IRC. She is at the hands of her 3rd owner only, all of them dedicated international campaigners; she has always been dry-sailed and kept in immaculate condition. 
She is a full carbon racing yacht built on an One Design prescription in 2000 from Carroll Marine USA. One Design translates to strong, long lasting, well thought, unbreakable, all round, fast, no rule compromise and perfectly equipped with Hall carbon spars, Lewmar, Harken, Spinlock, Navtec gear and Yanmar engine. But One Design from Bruce Farr means more than anything else User Friendly.
She sports a 2,05 meter carbon bowsprit, flies 300 sqm masthead spinnakers that are lowered through a new XL bow hatch and hoists a 100+ sqm mainsail with a square top of 1,6m supported by 3 carbon battens/systems that slide on a special glued-on low profile Hall Spars/Antal dual mast groove track that has proved extremely efficient and versatile.
The B&G/Ockham electronics package is PC driven, updated and runs Deckman and Expedition tactical software and all info needed is readily available on any smart screen on board through extended Wi-Fi. Navtec Hydraulics for boomvang, outhaul and at the mast step are fully operational and are reliable solutions to control the loads even in gale force conditions like the ones we encountered in 2004, 2007 and 2014 in the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
