The Yacht

The Yacht

Team Adventure was built for “The Race” in 2000. She was the fastest sailboat in the world at the time.

She is still one of the five or so fastest boats in the world, 16 years after her initial launch. We’re now undertaking the initial planning stages of refitting the yacht for sailing ferry purposes. A project towards a greener travel future and a sound investment for anyone interested.

The design for the refit includes recyclable sails, a provision to move between the hulls under cover, bio-fueled auxiliary engines with intelligent drives, renewable-energy powered ‘house’ electrics and comfortable accommodation for 12 passengers and six crew plus many other exciting features.
