A very tidy example of the evergreen, 1st generation dual purpose Class 40 Akilaria RC1 racer/cruiser. These boats are known for their reliability and robustness especially if carefully maintained. As a vintage category Class 40 these boats get their own ranking as well as overall scores within Class 40 events. A recent extensive refit means this particular boat offers excellent value for money especially for a potential purchaser looking for an entry into either of the current Class 40 global races (Globe 40, Race Around) or even the more amateur level round the world yacht races (Global Solo Challenge).

This is a genuine dual-purpose Class 40 that can be cruised in comfort but still surfs and hits Class 40 speeds. Equally at home racing or fast cruising these boats have an enviable reputation. Karu I under previous ownership has completed the Atlantic Cup several times with a best placed finish position of 3rd in the 2014 event and 3rd place finish in the 2019 Bermuda 1-2. In Europe these Akilaria Rc1 are still being raced against the top guns of the Class 40 fleet and can give a good account of themselves given the right conditions and skillful sailing.
