Yacht description

CANNONBALL is a custom build 73 ft IMS Mini Maxi designed by the famous yacht architect and designer German Frers. The aluminium yacht was built in 1987 with aeronautical welding expertize by the world-known shipyard Williams & Manchester (Newport, Rhode Island, USA). The first owner sailed the boat in the NW Atlantic, winning several prestigious races, including the Newport Bermuda race in 1988.

Later CANNONBALL crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. The second owner ordered German Frers in 1996 to design a new bulb keel to improve the yacht’s performance. He won severaI races, including the European Maxi championship. The boat has been sailed by the world’s most famous skippers and tacticians.

After a succesfull racing career with numerous victories, CANNONBALL was bought by an Italian owner and retired. The yacht’s interior and systems were upgraded for comfortable cruising the Mediterranean.

Now CANNONBALL is back in business! Refitted in the Netherlands and fully upgraded to modern day Standards. Ready for some serious sailing again.
