Costing in excess of Euro 1.5m at build, OPAL is arguably the ultimate short-handed rocket ship that money can buy. Full carbon sandwich construction, coupled with canting keel with 4,000kgs lead torpedo bulb, carbon retractable canard, full carbon Southern Spars rig, carbon standing rigging and carbon sails, this 11,000 kgs flying machine is effortlessly controlled by the smallest of crews thanks to full push-button hydraulics and powered winches for all duties.


While OPAL offers a formidable presence on the race circuit, she is still fully fitted out below decks with up to 8 berths in three cabins, a proper saloon, electric heads and a full galley. If ever there was a boat to compete for line honours in the ARC, OPAL is the boat.


Stored ashore in a heated storage hall each winter and only launched between April and October, OPAL has been very lightly used within Baltic waters only. Professionally maintained since launch, she is presented in fantastic condition throughout. Her specification highlights include:-

·         Canting keel

·         Carbon fibre retractable canard daggerboard

·         Carbon fibre rudder

·         Southern Spars carbon fibre rig with carbon standing rigging

·         Harken hydraulic winches

·         Comprehensive sail inventory

·         Fischer Panda 8kva generator

·         8kw inverter

·         24vDC domestic electronics

·         Retractable anchoring arm

·         Full galley with stove and fridge

·         Electric heads

·         Double master cabin forward plus 6 further pipecots aft

·         1.95m headroom in saloon
