This FB35 is an incredibly fun and fast boat to sail, that has been seriously prepared for offshore racing, along with her natural inshore capability.
Weapon of Choice is a full pre-preg carbon boat and optimized for IRC and ORCi, with many grand prix bells and whistles when it comes to hardware.

She's a fantastic all rounder, but really excites off the breeze and would suit someone looking for fast sailing, on a modern platform.
