43' Tripp Custom 43

$79,000

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.

Bill Tripp Design CONCEPT
Concept

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.  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.
