ROCKALL is now for sale..
Originally built as BRIBON for the King of Spain, before she became "Flying Jenny", "Ice Fire", "RKO" and now "ROCKALL"

Her most recent ownership has by far and away been her most successful and competitive spell, with the last two owners putting her through what can only be described as a "complete overhaul" when they purchased her in 2016 and again in 2017.
Under the direction of Gavin Brady, ROCKALL (then RKO) was transformed into one of Australia's most competitive TP's and arguably there is not a better boat of this generation that can tackle both inshore and offshore racing with the same degree of confidence. 2016 was a big turning point for the boat, with a new sail inventory and carbon rigging installed, it really pushed the performance in the right direction.

Further upgrades in 2017 and again in 2018 from the current and hugely experienced owner include more offshore sails, a new PAC 52 designed rudder and a new B&G H5000 system, mean this boat is pretty turn-key for her next campaign.
The boat has not sailed since late 2018 and has been stored indoors.
