Impossible Dream was built by Multimarine Composites to the highest specs using carbon fibre and epoxy; the boat is very strong and robust.
She had an extensive £150,000 refit in 2010, just before Geoff Holt’s record breaking sail from the UK to the Caribbean, which made him the first quadriplegic to cross, unassisted in sailing, across the Atlantic. As a result he has since received an OBE and been voted IPC’s 2010 Yachtsman of the Year.
If a charity were to purchase the boat, the price would become negotiable.

Designed by Nic Bailey, famous for designing the pods of the London Eye, the brief was that the boat had to be capable of being operated from a wheelchair. As a result Impossible Dream is very innovative, well built and also exceptionally good looking, causing a stir wherever she arrives.
Pretty much everything on board was custom made to the highest standards, using titanium where possible to reduce the weight, allowing for the weight of very sophisticated control systems. Impossible Dream was one of the first boats to be controlled remotely from a palm top by using a centralised computer system and touch screen technology, which has been virtually faultless in the 8 years since her launch.
This technical showcase for off shore sailing is now available for sale. The list of kit is too numerous to enumerate but represents only the best gear you can buy. She comes as a complete ready to sail package, giving the new owners a unique opportunity to carry on opening up the world for disabled sailing.
Impossible Dream is currently moored in Tortola and, if not sold by before May, will be sailed back to the Multimarine Composites yard near Plymouth, where she can be viewed by appointment.
