Since she was built 'Secret Men's Business' has been under full time guardian age by a series of professional and capable yacht managers. She is in immaculate condition and has had no expense spared by any of her owners. Her current manager is also the owner of the Doyle Sail loft in South Australia and as a result is a beneficiary of current sail technology and a wardrobe that rarely goes without.
As one of the most competitive TP52's ever built, 'Secret Men's Business' still has the ability to compete in any regatta at the highest level.
