An exceptional Open Class racing yacht with an enviable track record. Pegasus is still the fastest boat of her type in the world. As Philippe Kahn's Pegasus she has won consecutively two double-handed Transpacs and two Pacific Cup Races. In the 2008 edition of the 2008 Pacific Cup Pegasus was the first overall yacht to finish beating TP52,s and Santa Cruz 70s, won the event on corrected time and set a new San-Francisco to Hawaii double-handed record. The following year, Philippe Kahn and Mark Christensen beat the existing double-handed Transpacific Record by more than two days. In 2012 the yacht was campaigned as Truth, by former Class 40 sailor Alex Mehran, when he smashed the solo Transpac record, beating the Open 60 Wild Things time by nearly two and a half days.

Based in the UK for a number of years and campaigned by Ross Hobson in various RORC events she was then sold into the hands of a Canary Islands owner who used her for largely day sailing trips and she has now been relocated to Cadiz where she can be inspected. She has had little maintenance work carried out and is now in need of a good refit and general overhaul of all onboard systems. A new mainsail and running backstays will be required (Spare old lightweight main exists in the inventory) There is a spare keel, spare mast, her yard/shipping cradle located in Hamble UK. The owner is prepared to listen to all offers put forward and is very motivated to sell.
