JUBILEE is a Farr designed GP 42 that has been IRC and FAST 40 optimized.
The boat is living proof that you don't have to spend the kids inheritance in order to play with the big boys in the exciting FAST 40 class and she has taken more race wins off the newest 2015/16/17 designs than any other boat!
A thumping regatta win at this years RORC Easter challenge, with straight bullets, just highlights the potential with this boat both inside and outside of the FAST 40 fleet and with her original coach roof still in tact, she's got a lot to offer someone that wants to test her offshore, as well as around the cans!
Jubilee (Ex Near Miss) started its life in November 2007, built by Latini marine in Italy and designed by Farr Yacht design.
The construction was overseen by a group of America's Cup builders (Oracle and Alinghi) for the 2008 Audi Med Circuit and it is widely believed that she is one of the lightest GP 42 boats built, because of this early investment in personnel.
She was first splashed in march 2008, and named Near Miss, skippered by Bertand Pace.
The boat is constructed from Pre-preg carbon fibre with foam cores and was done over a single male mould for the hull and female plug for the deck.
Then during the 2009 and 2010 seasons the boat was raced under IRC but for only 2/3 events per year.
They modified the boat with a fixed bowsprit and square top mainsail for improved rating.
After then it was life in IRC and ORC with a French owner, who took the boat to many regatta victories.
In more recent years (2015) the boat found a new home in the UK FAST 40 class and has been optimized further for IRC and FAST 40 style racing.
She has been one of the stand out boats in the fleet, particularly in the lighter wind ranges and sailed by a more Corinthian crew than most teams.
