Auckland, New Zealand
This beautiful and probably most refined of the Open 40 racing designs from Group Finot was designed and built for the 2001 Transat Jacques Vabres. In 2002 she was purchased, refitted and renamed Spirit of Yukoh for the 2003 Around Alone Race. Finishing first in class she won the Harry Mitchell award proving to be the fastest among the Open 40's. In 2005 she undertook a major refit which was carried out by Open 60 preparateur/project manager Brian Harris at the Maine Yacht centre. She was fitted with a state of the art interior pod and all the ships systems and equipment were renewed. Sails and handling equipment were upgraded again in 2007 again to a high standard and specification. Anasazi Girl departed from the North Eastern United States in late 2006 and sailed non-stop to Cape Town. She then circumnavigated Cape Town to Cape Town with one stop in New Zealand. The last leg from Cape Town was carried out with a short stop in Bermuda. The yacht was inspected in the summer of 2009 for Boatshed by Merfyn Owen of Owen Clarke Design who is an experienced short-handed sailor as well as a well known designer of these types of yacht. She had been laid up at Maine Yacht services, winterised and covered with her onboard equipment in dry storage. She is in excellent condition, doesn't show her age and is one of those boats that's clearly been well looked after and almost certainly in as good a condition as she's ever been. Among the very best examples of her type. An inspection would be highly recommended and wouldn't disappoint.
