This Owen Clarke Design Class40 is in excellent structural conditions, sister-ship to #79 it was built to Category Zero standards to include additional transverse bulkheads. The boat has just been re commissioned after being out the water for 3 and a half years and needs some TLC to brink her to top form. All graphics are vinyl wrap from previous sponsorship and can be removed.
The mast is a Southern Spars mast brand new in 2015 with only about 2 years of actual use. All running rigging has been renewed in in 2021.
The upwind sail inventory requires a new main and Solent: currently onboard are only a delivery mainsail and dacron staysail as well as 3 downwind sails in good order. Sail inventory and maintenance jobs still to be carried out will be reflected in the price to be negotiated with any interested party.
