This Jim Donovan one design sportsboat was built by Wraceboats in 2016 and has been regularly sailed on the inshore circuit here in Hong Kong. Famed for exceptional speed and control this race boat has gained huge praise from her winning crews and skippers alike. The GP26’s main features are her stable and balanced hull form coupled with the deep fin and 47% balance ratio producing blistering performance. This example comes equipped with a suit of Quantum sails and is ready to race again in Hong Kong or be packed up and shipped to a new destination for a new adventure.
The boat has won and placed well in major events around Hong Kong and has been kept in hardstanding for the last two years.
