go bolts!

bolt w 2

A familiar refrain here in Dago, it now has a new meaning.Love to get one of these in town. The new “Charger”, anyone?  Here’s the latest from the Bolt 37. So far, so good…

Last Sunday 3 bolt 37 raced in a one design competition organized by Turkish Offshore Racing Club for the first time. It was a sunny and relatively hot winter day, wind was blowing from south in a range of 10-6 knots. Jason Ker and Simon Schofield from Ker Yacht Design were together with us for testing and racing with the boats. The day was planned for 3 windward leeward races but because of lack of wind, 3rd race is cancelled. Jason was on Hull 3 and Hull 2, Simon was in Hull 2 and 1. First race won by Hull 3 sponsored by W Collection, Hull #2 Gin was second with a 9 sec. margin over hull#1!

Ka Yachting, investor of the Bolt 37 project started 12 months ago and has sold 5 Boats already, will increase the price of the boats after the 6th hull. First 3 are on the water and 4th and fifth are in production, so 6th hull is available for discounted price of 169K€ and after that base price will increase to 179K€. More here.
