Gryphon Solo2 was commissioned in 2011 for an experienced offshore skipper who had sailed several Class 40's before selecting the Akilaria RC2, designed by Marc Lombard and built by MC-TEC. This 2014 Atlantic Cup winner is a great all-round performer with exceptionally fast reaching capabilities and is designed to go offshore quickly and safely. She is CE Certified Category A, ISAF Category Zero.

With a complete refit in 2015 in preparation for an around the world solo record attempt, and a further refit in 2021/22, she has been consistently maintained to the highest standards by the same owner from new. She is currently racing in the Globe 40 La Grand Route, lying in 4 th  place. She will make an ideal entry level boat for Class 40 racing or other global challenges. She is a great all-rounder with a renewed sail inventory. She will be ready to view post-race in Lorient in March 2023.
