With a significant refit investment in 2021 Sensei represents a very smart Akilaria RC3 which is ready to go back on to the racecourse. Privately owned and professionally maintained and prepared, this Class 40 will make an ideal entry level boat for the 2022/23 race season. A great all-rounder with few vices and a renewed inventory, updated to the highest specification of gear and rigging modifications. Viewing or a trial sailing will not disappoint.

Previously raced by such notable sailors as Damien Seguin, Isabelle Joschke, Alain Gautier, Pierre Brasseur and Yoann Richomme this is a vinyl wrapped white hull boat built by specialist Class 40 builder HACO. Featuring a hull, deck and structure in epoxy foam sandwich and incorporating the high-performance option of a steel keel fin (spar) and optimised lead keel bulb. A racing ballast system of 2x750L in 4 compartments, piping and optimised transfer system. She also benefits from twin kick-up rudders, complete NKE electronics with 2 separate integrated pilot systems. This boat is a real weapon of its generation.
