This boat was custom built in 1986 for Hal Roth to race single handed around the world in what was then known as the BOC challenge and latter became the “Vendee Globe” around the world race. The boat was sailed in the 1986 BOC race as “Sebago”. For the 1990 BOC race Hal Roth sailed the boat as “American Flag." Before the race he incorporated a water ballast system of 350 gallons giving the boat an additional 3,000 lbs of movable ballast. This modification gave the boat an increase in up wind performance of 3/4 ‘s of a knot. Hal Roth wrote a book called “Chasing the Long Rainbow” which depicted his adventures in racing solo in the BOC race. The boat gained further notoriety when in 1999, a woman by the name of “Anna Stockel” purchased the boat, did a major refit including further modifications such as a taller mast and wheel steering and then very successfully sailed her, single handily to the “First to Finish” honors in the 2000 Trans Pac race. This is the last Santa Cruz 50 built in the United States.
The boat was in Hawaii for many years after the 2000 Transpac and locally cruised, she features a full complement of older race sails that were new 1999 but have had very little use.
This boat has many custom construction and design features that make her "Truly" one of a kind (see full specs) This boat has been continually updated throughout the years by her previous owners keeping her as competitive now as she was when new. This boat has recently undergone another major refit in side and out including; New LP exterior paint, New interior paint, major service on the Yanmar engine, New main sail,New head sail,New canvas,New bottom paint and the list goes on and on.
