“Shadow" is a VERY FAST, FUN Formula 40 Catamaran - designed by Gino Morrelli
This is a rare opportunity to own, sail and race a tested, top-of-the-line, well equipped, truly exhilarating, high-performance catamaran!
"Shadow" was designed by Gino Morrelli and co-built with Bob DeLong at RD Boatworks in Capistrano Beach California. This was the next generation design following Gino’s F40 World Champion “Smyth Team” design that dominated the inaugural French Formula Forty season in 1986.
Launched in 1987, "Shadow" began her life as “Richmond” where she was sailed by a Belgian crew in France, before being purchased by Dennis Conner of America’s Cup fame. Renamed “Stars and Stripes” by the SDYC syndicate, she was put into service as a training boat, leading up to the 1988 America’s Cup. After the 1988 America’s Cup she was sailed in Hawaii for a few years - then purchased and renamed “Shadow” by her current owner, in San Francisco - where she has compiled an enviable race record, including winning the Rolex Big Boat series in 2013.
All carbon/epoxy/foam/vacuum-bagged - "Shadow" is the lightest F40 cat ever built. She has been constantly updated and professionally maintained - and it is estimated that her replacement cost would be in excess of $300,000 - today.
