'Challenger’ is the 1997 Alan Andrews/ Eric Goetz Whitbread Round the World Race entrant ‘America’s Challenge’ now heavily modified and updated to meet the specific needs of modern regatta charterers.
Challenger has a full wardrobe of sails for the 2017 season and is expertly crewed by Round the World race skippers who will be able to provide skills development to sailors of all levels.
Challenger is built of nomex-cored Kevlar, has a 13ft deep, 14,000lb T- keel, single spade rudder, a 90ft mast with 4500sqft of sail area available and is optimized to be driven hard by a small core crew of pro’s allowing charter guests to enjoy the thrill of a yacht that can sail at up to 25kts without having to be Round the World pro-crew themselves.
Experience the BVI Spring Regatta in 2017 from the best seats in the house- on board Spartan Ocean Racing’s yacht ‘Challenger’.
