Concorde is a late model Daniel Andrieu design from 1989 that was built for Alain Gautier at the B&B yard in La Trinité-sur-Mer.
Concorde was built without any budget considerations of carbon and titanium and is extremely light displacement 2nnn with 2nn internal ballast.
Concorde has always been a fast yacht as she was 2nd at the HTC in Le Havre (1989), and also won Le Figaro in that same year. Since the start of the HTCC Concorde has always been top 10, and this year at Hankø Norway we managed a 4th out of 35 entries.
The yacht is still in it’s original IOR configuration apart from a change to a Mark Mills IRC keel. Current IRC rating is 0.959.
For this year's HTCC at Hankø, all running rigging, sheets/guys and trim lines have been upgraded to Liros spectra cordage, a new set set of Raymarine instruments with 2x maxi mast displays has been installed. The hull and appendages have been sanded down and gone over with Nautix A4 T-speed which has been wet sanded with 400-800.
All winches and blocks have been pulled apart and serviced. The cabin top winch has been replaced with a new Harken self-tailing equivalent.
The hull has been polished and the deck sanded down and re-sprayed.
A purpose built road legal trailer is included in the sale.
An additional non-used carbon fiber mast section may also follow the yacht if relevant.
Sail Inventory:
Carbon Membrane Heavy #1
Carbon Membrane #3 Jib
S2 Spinnaker 0.6oz
All other sails from 2017 North Sails, for training only.
Lying in southern Norway
Asking price: 36.000 EURO
Concorde will travel to the next HTCC in Nieuwpoort (Belgium), and will be available for sale before/after the championship.

FOR SALE 'OWL' - in Canada

Graham and Schlageter 30 Half Ton
Built 1981, designed in Chicago and Built in Ottawa Ontario Canada.
Owl is presently in the water on Lake Ontario near Toronto Canada.
Owl is in pretty much original condition. We have owned her since 1998. Our goal is to find an owner who will give her a refit and continue to race her.

Owl’s prototype “Toy Boat” won Boat of the Year in Chicago, with a perfect score and won the Half Ton North Americans twice in early 1980’s.

We're helping to bring RED SHAMROCK (built 1975 by Southern Boatyard near Cork, Ireland) back to club racing.
We desperately need a good no.2 headsail.
The boat has a furler and rough measure gave 35ft luff. Light dacron or similar okay.

Crakajax, a meticulously maintained X-95 built in 1985 is for sale.

Much to the Class' regret since the owners are keen sailors and regular participants of the Half Ton Classic Cup events... But as always, the advancing years take their toll... So this beautiful yacht is on the market again after 16 years of constantly upgrades. Interestingly she carries a much envied IRC rating of just 0.901!

In the last years, apart from a new prop shaft, Gori-propeller and a new Corby designed rudder, she was upgraded with loads of new sails:

2022 light/medium carbon main
2021 heavy carbon main
2021 medium no.2 genoa
2019 .6 spinnaker
2018 light no.3 genoa
2017 medium no.3 genoa
2017 small no.3 genoa

She is fully equipped for both racing and cruising.
She is seriously looking for new owners.
Asking : 19.950 GBP - offers accepted

Per Elisa is the last iteration of the Half Ton prototype, designed by Giovanni Ceccarelli, built for the 1992 IOR Half Ton Cup, finishing second.
She was redesigned by Giovanni to move from a IOR to a IRC design: new sailplan, low drag high lift keel, rig moved aft with internal and deck reinforcement, very light carbon composite rudder & stock including Jefa bearings. Sliding fore hatch for spinnaker launching, new carbon mast with single backstay fitted to reinforced deck and extended cockpit. Refinished deck, topsides and anti-foul August 2021.
She is of light composite construction at 2400kg with 381kg internal ballast and has won many races in the Half Ton Cup since 1992 in Spain finishing 2nd, to her last HTCC in 2018 in Nieuwpoort finishing 3rd and is a very competitive IRC yacht and obvious contender for the next HTCC.
Lying in Falmouth, including road trailer.
It's time to let some one else sail this fantastic yacht.
