Having been subject to considerable investment under her current ownership, the well renowned and arguably best looking Half Tonner Miss Whiplash is now available. This Andrieu design is a racing machine which comes with an excellent competitive pedigree both locally and further afield and is a consistent contender at the Half Ton Cup. Much time and money has been invested in the vessel including an extensive sail wardrobe (featuring barley used North 3DL's and 3DI's) and significant hull, keel and rudder modifications meaning that Whiplash' will remain competitive for many seasons to come. An excellent boat for the serious campaigner or club racer alike, her competitive lineage needs to be continued!
