She is now back in Europe and available for viewing.
This 1989 Rob Humphreys 81ft Kevlar/Carbon/Epoxy fractional sloop Maxi Racer benefits from a full refit in 2011 and offers an ideal corporate platform or classic maxi potential.
Originally built by Paragon Composite as “Rothmans” for the 1989/90 Whitbread Round the World Race (the forerunner of the Volvo Ocean Race) where she finished fourth.
She is in original and fantastic condition and has been continuously maintained. Apart from some new electronics and sails, she is in her original racing trim down below. She benefits from being recently fully faired and painted including hull and topsides, new sails, continuous upgrading of the navigation instruments over the past 4 years and much more...
