Comet A is a MAT 1180 campaigned by the top racing team in Turkey.
This MAT1180 was the last one built and gained input from all that had gone before, to produce the best package possible.
A full sail package from North Sails, as well as Harken pedestal upgrade and substantial rig upgrades, make this a really potent option.
These MAT designs have always proven themselves both inshore and offshore and offer great value for money, for someone that wants a really fun boat to sail.


The MAT1180 is an exciting next-generation IRC race boat design which is the product of a long and careful design, engineering, and development process initiated by long term clients Alp and Cem Somer of MAT. Mills Design and MAT have worked together very successfully in the past on the MAT1245, MAT1010 and now MAT1180 IRC designs.

Research work began in early 2014 with our R&D partners KND Sailing Performance, a specialist firm leading the field in CFD and VPP performance prediction of high performance yachts. After a CFD program covering more than 20 hulls we produced a powerful hull shape that offers low drag when upright in light airs with increasing stability as the hull form immerses with heel in stronger winds. This increase in form stability allows a lighter overall displacement ensuring high performance off wind and in light airs.
