We’ve all seen the pictures of the new Fast 40+ Ran, so we reached out to the owner of one of the current top 40’s to ask what he thought of the new and very different Ran…
Well I’m not sure to be honest.
On the plus side Jason has done an amazing build job and we think the build is around 200 kg lighter, which should make a difference. It’s also a whole lot wider which would make me nervous in the Solent and I simply don’t know about the bow. If it works then great but I guess we will find out when it’s blowing 28k in knots wind against tide!
They have moved the pedestal forward of the traveler which we looked at when we built our mock-up and decided against. Flattered that they copied our cock pit design. Overall I’m happy to have my boat this year!
