"Macchia Mediterranea" is a Cookson built TP52 designed by Reichel Pugh.
Previously known as "Near Miss" and then "Team Vision Future", she was always a boat ahead of her time.
Winner of the IRC Europeans in 2017 and 2nd at Copa Del Ray, beating several 2015 designs, shows the potential!
A huge refit in 2018 has kept her cosmetically strong, as well as 2019 upgrades including Carbon standing rigging, to keep pushing the performance as well.
A very strong all round package here and having been used offshore in years gone by, there is not much this boat cant do.
