One of the few "modern" Twelves" with the very attractive low free board, she has been stored inside for the past several years, she is ready to sail in 2014 and realistically priced..

Hull and Appendages
During her 2004 refit the hull was taken back to bare metal, faired then built up with a barrier coat and paint system. The topsides gleam and have no blemishes.
In 2005 an Isotope Carbon fiber rudder which weighs 24 kgs, supported with a JP3 bearing, replaced the original which weighed 90 kgs, similarly the 90 kg trim tab was replaced with a carbon design weighing 20 kgs.
Obviously there was no expense was spared in upgrading and optimization.
