2009 Custom Botin IRC/ORC 42

Known previously as Jean Genie she underwent a large refit in 2020, with a new deck design and build from the transom to the forward hatch. A lower volume cockpit with raised cushioned floor gives a comfortable and efficient working platform, along with a centrally located pit winch driven by the pedestal, which is mounted aft. Spinnakers are now ground up, and a drop line is used to grind them down, much like a dinghy. No requirement for any crew below for a drop, speeding up the process significantly and saving precious seconds on the racecourse.

As DARK 'n' STORMY she has under gone continual fine tune of systems.

DARK 'n' STORMY has a very comprehensive sail inventory, which covers both windward / leeward courses and reaching and coastal courses.

A new electronic setup works well on the yacht, with a deck screen linked to a laptop below, plenty of readouts around the deck for different positions, no hydraulics onboard, (apart from the integral mast jack) makes the yacht very simple to sail, manage and look after.

Dark n Stormy would be an ideal small boat for the upcoming Admirals cup.
