‘Red 66’ is a fast, proven and reliable boat. She is sold ‘race ready’ and recently entered the 50th Anniversary Fastnet Race. Although Red 66 has not raced excessively she has achieved some great podium prizes coming 1st in the Twostar 2017 Transatlantic Race from Plymouth/GB to Newport/R.I together with 1st in other shorthanded races including Watski Two Star/ Norway, Pantaenius Round Skagen, Germany & Denmark, and the Polonez Cup. With only 2 owners from new, she has been well cared for and professionally maintained.

The Owen Clarke designed ‘Red 66’ was launched in 2009. She was built by Composite Creations using wet-preg epoxy/glass/corecell foam core. She has a fabricated keel fin with a lead bulb. With some additions she could be considered for Class40 compliance making her a perfect entry level boat. Alternatively, she would make a great candidate for line honours in medium to long offshore races (e.g. AZAB, OSTAR). She offers some basic comfort below making her suitable for fast cruising, too, for those seeking a thrilling ride. Red 66 is VAT paid and we are anticipating much interest in her so an early viewing is advised.
