BOLT is a "lightning" fast custom racing yacht. Bill Tripp, as a naval architect, has a clear priority: Speed! BOLT has previously won her division in the Rolex Big Boat Series at the StFYC, and, if well sailed, could be competitive in the ORR A division. Rating along with the Farr 40's, this is an exciting yacht to sail and is priced at a fraction of the cost to create a competitive racing sailboat in todays market. As either a Regatta entry, or to campaign as an ocean racer, BOLT is well positioned for the next owner.
Hull is foam-cored, fabricated with prepreg Kevlar laminate, painted in AWLGRIP. New T keel and carbon mast installed in 2011 in collaboration with the original designer William Tripp. Wheel steered - carbon rudder with JP3 self-aligning bearings. 3 hull windows to view keel, rudder and prop. Shakewell style flush closing Delrin sea cocks.

The design brief for Bill Tripp was: 'To build an IMS cruiser/racer of at least 43 feet in length overall that will be the fastest of the existing 40-43ft fleet, including War Stores, High Noon, the Tripp 41's and Raven'.
The full service history and drawings of the boat are available from the first owner which is extensive.Â After moving the boat to the Bay Area, the second owner updated the boat by upgrading the keel, and mast and sail wardrobe with all the designs coming from Bill Tripp.
