Broker's Comments

From the board of Ben Lexcen, famous for the winged keel design of Australia II, which became the first non American yacht to win the America's cup trophy for 132 years. A successful race boat in her time, she has been optimized for single handed sailing with all sails trimmed from the cockpit assisted by a 3 speed electric winch. Fast and comfortable her great light wind performance makes her ideal for condition's in SE Asia
