A truly excellent example of this iconic model, if not the best in existence. Fully maintained by professional crew from factory to present. She has all the toys and fantastic reputation.
This boat was originally commissioned by Charlie Carey the founder and former owner of the Moorings.
She was built and finished to his exacting specification built mostly from Kevlar with a foam core on the deck and balsa in the hull. She has stood the test of time better than any and is a real head turner. Inviting remarks and praise wherever she goes.
Her looks are only surpassed by her sailing performance. Designed by the legendary multihull designers of VPLP
She has a great turn of speed and easily cruises in the double figures whilst the wine glass sits motionless on the table.
