"The nicest Carrera 290 on the planet" as quoted by Sailing Anarchy in July, 2014, was completed in 2001 by Casey Yacht Enterprises after they purchased the original Carrera 290 molds. Compared to earlier hulls, Casey widened the cockpit and moved the traveler aft. He also gave her a higher aspect rig. In 2013 Element Boat Works refurbished her and she is now featured on their website.
The current owners purchased this like-new super-fast, sport sail boat in 2015 from its second owner in California. They sailed her on fresh water inland lakes during the summer months and kept her in covered storage during the winter.
In 2013, the rig was replaced with a Forte RTS carbon fiber mast, boom, spreaders, bow sprit and Prolite fiber shrouds. A carbon sprit, rudder, post and tiller round out the carbon features. The renovations include new LP Topsides and deck, new epoxy hull deck joint, new nonskid, custom motor mount, new stanchions canted outward to allow for greater hiking, pulpit to accommodate downward sloping life lines, and much more.
Loaded with racing features and a suite of sails, she is ready to go again. She is a head turner with a Southern California PHRF 69,63,51 rating.
Owners have just purchased a more comfortable (with a real head) sailboat to continue their leisurely sailing into retirement so they are now two boat owners. Easy to show even in the winter months inside the marina building.
