Launched in 2021 Happy Vore has already proved herself as one of the most competitive Class 40s. Campaigned in the TJV, Les 1000 milles des Sables and Drheam Cup,  she deservedly gained  a 1 st  in the Armen Race. Built by Multiplast she is a fantastic example of a VPLP Clak 40 high performance and reliable boat, which can compete with the latest generation of scows.

Happy Vore has been meticulously maintained by a full-time boat captain and is race ready for the 2022 Route de Rhum. She has benefited from much investment making her a first-class racing option for a serious buyer who wishes to campaign her with the best of the Class 40. She comes with a comprehensive and detailed inventory including new Z Spars carbon mast and new engine. She is currently lying in Lorient France where she can be viewed and will be available for purchase post RdR.
