Class 40 'Reve de Large' #79 For Sale

Class40 - FRA79 – Withdrawn from Sale
A third generation Owen Clarke Class 40 design, this yacht was expertly built in the UK by a team that included artisans who had been responsible for the construction of Volvo 70s and Americas Cup Catamarans. This design began from a clean sheet of paper and incorporated modifications made to the Class 40 rules in 2008. It was without doubt the most technically advanced Class 40 yacht created at that time. The result of a collaboration by Owen Clarke Design and Americas Cup/Team New Zealand designer Clay Oliver. In addition, OCD utilised the talents of French hydrodynamicist and BMW/Oracle design team member, Michel Kermarec for the evolution of the appendages. Having had little use by her commissioning owner and chartered to Jörg Reichers for two years she was sold on to her next custodian who carried out a comprehensive refit programme that saw the boat sport a new Axxon carbon rig and rigging, new sails and a general lightening of the yacht that culminated in meeting the minimum class rules for overall weight and mast righting limiter weight. A Further comprehensive refit was undertaken in 2018 including new sails, refit of the rig, rigging and deck hardware along with a general update of the boats electronics.
