Carbon Arrow is a truly unique yacht, combining the latest technology in racing yacht construction with the modern styling and hi-quality craftsmanship of Marten Yachts, New Zealand.  The hull and deck are built in carbon fibre pre-preg with nomex and corecell foam ensuring a stong, light and durable structure.  Apart from the teak decking in the cockpit, there is no wood on this boat, all visible surfaces are finished in composite, a monumental amount of work that very few shipyards are able to achieve.

Sailing this yacht is a breeze with fully hydraulic deck and rig controls.  Well set up for short or even single handed sailing, the hydraulic systems can even be controlled by remote control allowing freedom of movement around the deck.

In 2007, Carbon Arrow underwent an extensive refit at the Sailing Solutions shipyard in La Ciotat where she was brought to an even higher level of perfection.  This refit included but was not limited to the following:


  • Topsides repainted metallic dark grey Awlcraft paint
  • Bottom painted with black antifouling
  • Installation of retractable MaxPower bow thruster – 24v DC


  • Deck re-caulked with white caulking
  • Coachroof repainted in black with non-skid
  • All stainless steel padeyes fittings replaced with Blew-Stoub/Karver lightweight hardware
  • All new deck canvas
  • Self tailing tops fitted on winches


  • Major interior restyling – white painting with many clear-coat carbon features
  • New cabin sole in carbon fibre
  • All new upholstery in Grey fabric
  • Aft cabin divided into two separate twin cabins
  • New dark grey metallic Corian in galley

  • New Backstays in PBO From Future Fibres (2013)
