GODSPEED with just two owners was originally custom designed based upon the hull for the highly successful Farr 520D for her original Greek owner at an approximate cost of Euro 1.4m with a further EUR 250,000 invested in her extensive sail wardrobe and with which we are told she achieved many very good race results. Now under her second ownership to a professional racing academy for just one year, GODSPEED is sadly having to make way for a new commercial project. With her extensive specification, she would make for either a very competitive race boat or an extremely fast cruising boat. She provides for a surprisingly comfortable interior specification designed by Design Unlimited comprising three double cabins with one en-suite and a further guest/day heads, whilst her saloon provides an excellent space for entertaining or additional sleeping space as required and her linear style galley should ensure everyone is well catered for. In addition to her many performance features such as the design and construction materials used for her hull, deck, carbon mast, boom and bowsprit plus of course, her extensive 20-sail sail wardrobe from a mixture of North and Quantum, she has many features considered useful for cruising as well such as; a watermaker, generator, well equipped galley and air conditioning plus her engine is from the ever-popular Yanmar brand.
“We have had her for just one year and it is a pity to not be keeping her longer. In the last year we have done just one 1,000 mile race to Montenegro, competed in the Rolex Middle Sea Race with a completely amateur crew where although we were leading the ARC racing division for a long time but after breaking our gennaker still finished in 9th place. We finished this year’s Heineken Cup in 2nd place.”
