One of the best around, this IRC 42 is simply impressive. Reading on is a must.
Boat was originally built for the 2009 Med Cup circuit, as the GP42 Madrid-Caser Endesa, inspired by the ETNZ TP52 hull. She was one of the last GP42's built and in 2010 won the Med Cup championship, with her sistership second.
In 2014 the boat was then brought to the UK and optimized for IRC racing and raced both inshore and offshore.
As the UK FAST 40 scene began to take shape, the optimization continued and taking the boat to the top echelon of IRC yachts worldwide.
