Active Again is a proven IRC performer and excellent platform for racing either inshore or offshore. Currently set up for CAT 1 offshore racing, this is a turn-key racing yacht ready for her next owner.
No expense was spared in the original specification of the yacht which includes all carbon/ Nomex construction, Southern Spar's mast and boom package and all Harken deck gear, winches and hydraulics.
Latest owners have worked meticulously through the yachts systems to ensure all is operating or updated to suit offshore requirements. She is all set and ready for Sydney to Hobart Race.
