What's this boat

Recommended Posts

That boat had a feature boat review in Yachting Monthly (hence the YM video posted above).

Very nice boat. Design brief was something along the lines of taking all the pro's of the IMOCA's and putting it into a cruising platform.


The same boat also featured in a review of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. Their major complaint was that the cockpit did not have a bimini, nor any way of rigging sun shade...

Appears you can spend a few million euro, have the latest boat from the top designer, but you still need some basic cruising comforts.


I'd take a guess that (if it is the same boat, German flag) its done the milk run from Panama after finishing the ARC, and has come down here for the cyclone season.

I remember that yacht, first saw her in Neiafu and then in the Bay of Isles in the Lau Group. He anchored in the middle of Ship's Cove on about 100m of chain making it very difficult for everyone else to fit in. We heard the owner had contracted Dengue and had to be medivac'd out
