Building and history

Main construction in fiberglass, some equipment in carbon fiber: steering wheels, bowsprit, rear bench (convertible into gangway).
3rd owner, the 1st having kept her only a few months for medical reasons. The 2nd one has owned her for about 10 years.
Built in 2008 and launched in 2009. She has always been maintained and put on hard deck regularly (the 2nd owner having a shipyard). The current owners bought her after survey on hard dock and in the water in 2019.
Recent replacements and revision of structural equipment:
- 2021 main sails (including hydranet mainsail), replacement of halyards and reefing lines
- Replacement of standing rigging (forestay, backstay, shrouds) in 2019
- Replacement of through-hulls and correspondant valves in 2019
- Replacement of the main energy production equipment (batteries, PS and associated regulators, shore charger, etc.)
- Overhaul of the main other equipment in 2021: watermaker, hydro generator, automatic pilot, engine.

A word of the owner

We chose this boat for a 2 years family trip.
She is a fast and comfortable boat which offers excellent sensations at the helm.
She is well equipped for good performance (twin rudders, spinnaker pole and bowsprit for spinnaker and gennaker, large mainsail traveller and German style sheets, 2.6 m draft) and her architecture is very safe (releasable forestay for staysail, through mast, chainplates fixed in the structure, bowsprit and forepeak, reefing from the cockpit).
She took us from the Mediterranean to Polynesia with a lot of pleasure and fantastic moments.
We are selling her because our trip ends in spring 2022.
