Launched in 2015 by McConaghy Boats Invictus has competed over 3 seasons in The Solent and has an impressive track record. Continually optimised over the last 3 years, Invictus is one of the most competitive boats in the fleet. Modifications include: fabricated steel keel fin, heavier bulb, foam bow modification, lightweight engine and several other tweaks. Offered with a large wardrobe of sails, many of which are still in good race condition. Further mods have been suggested by Jason Ker to further improve performance, but sure to be highly competitive under IRC with no further modifications.
