This Carkeek design, which was built in 2012 by McConaghy Boats, to a very high Carbon/Nomex/Epoxy spec, has achieved top level success on both HPR and more recently IRC.
Newly modified with the FAST 40 transom scoop and with the weight modeing of the boat spot on the numbers, she represents a hugely attractive, turn-key option for FAST 40 fleets the world over.
