Designed by David Lyons and built by Azzura Marine in Nowra, she has fantastic pedigree. Since launching in 2004 as Vanguard, she has consistently performed in all conditions and still has the goods to win regattas and big races and is simply waiting for a new owner who wants a turn-key performer at a great price.
Whilst having proved herself as a serious offshore contender, without canting keel or water ballast she is still able to be sailed In a twilight or social racing mode by as few as 3 or 4 people.
