Acting on a rumour, I call Bernard Gallay at Bernard Gallay Yacht Brokerage who confirms the sale of his central agency, the fast 29.87m sailing yacht Alfa Romeo 2.
Alfa Romeo 2 was commissioned by legendary yachtsman Neville Crichton from Australia’s McConaghy yard with the sole intention of winning races. And win them she did, being the first to cross the line in the 2009 Sydney-Hobart and setting a new record to win the 2009 Transpac race. Built for speed, she offers little in the way of creature comforts, but there is room for 22 crew. Alfa Romeo 2 was asking €3.495 million.
