Formerly owned and prepared by Ross Field for the Global Ocean Race, this Guillaume Verdier designed, Class 40, Hupane is now for sale. Sister-ship of Giovanni Soldini’s winning Telecom Italia and fore-runner of a string of highly successful Tyker 40s, Hupane is Cat A (Ocean) ready, has recently been refitted and is lying in Auckland New Zealand. She is undoubtedly one of the fastest short-handed race boats in the Pacific region, a great boat for Round North Island, Trans- Tasman TransPac etc and without doubt capable of taking the Melbourne-Osaka record from her longer waterline competitors. This is a well sorted, reliable, proven Class40/short-handed sailing yacht ready to sail to anywhere on the Pacific rim, including the west coast of the US, without the cost and time spent shipping from Europe.
