Sofi is a Ron Holland designed maxi and built by Palmer Johnson.

She was built to the highest specifications and made to last.

In 2012 this Palmer Johnson Ron Holland Maxi 78 covered over 20,000 miles of ocean. Starting in New Zealand she crossed the Southern Ocean navigating through seas in excess of Force 12 and around Cape Horn. From Ushuaia she cruised the Antarctic on a very sucessful voyage. Then on up the East coast of South America, on to the Azores and finally Spain.
Sofi is a highly proven vessel and she was run as a sail training yacht in 2012 but crewed with as few as 3 crew on some delivery legs.
She would make a great charter yacht or a private yacht as with the previous owners.
