Boat Name: Discover Sailing Asia - Getaway Ichi

Very competitive, IRC-optimized 32-footer. This pocket rocket is a giant killer. Getaway Ichi has outperformed much larger yachts in IRC racing including: Sydney40, Swan42, Farr36, Bene 47.7 and 40.7, Archambault 35 and 40, Elan 410 and many others. Designed by Jason Ker for all-round performance, the Ker32 is one of those rare, magic IRC designs that keeps winning (like the J35 or BH36). It is in walk-on and win condition.

This particular yacht is in exceptional condition after having been purchased by her owner in Spain a few years ago and then refitted and continually maintained and upgraded since. On the Asian racing scene she is very well known with 3 Raja Muda wins and 2 King’s Cup wins, and has a string of podium finishes to her name. Her sail wardrobe is BRAND NEW including a Evolution full carbon race mainsail.

Boat Name: Resolution of Whitby

It’s easy to realise from the moment you step aboard “Reso” that this a handsome sloop. It is completely put together like an Aston Martin and balanced to stand her watch and hand steer through a gale but then turn out a stunning meal afterward. A powerful Bluewater performer and a supremely comfortable coastal cruiser, the more you look the more you find that every piece is in place to make the 523 appeal to a wide spectrum of sailors and non-sailors. As she is a thrill to sail and a delight to entertain on.

Such is the well balance of the yacht and ease of use she lends herself to club racing with a IRC handicap to come out a winner even if she passes the line soon after the full-on racing yacht. But they won’t cross the line with a G&T in-hand.

With 600 cruising catamarans built, Catalac Catamarans are a boat building success story and are very well known in Europe, yet not so much in America. Amongst many models, they built our 8 meter cruising catamarans. These boats were well built and widely respected, making them a hidden gem in today's boat marketplace, and one of the best values available in cruising catamarans today.
