Experience a true cruiser/racer sailing yacht with Ocean Independence

1 February 2012By Malcolm MacLean

Jim Acher at Ocean Independence sends word that he's inviting brokers and clients to come to Palma and enjoy an exhilarating test of Hull #1 of the Carbon Ocean Yachts 82 series.

The dates are February 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 or 26 and this series of 25m pure-bred cruiser/racer sailing yachts from Carbon Ocean Yachts of Rhode Island, USA, simply offer performance like no other.

Using the latest construction techniques, the hulls are built of pre-preg carbon fibre, giving enormous weight savings and blistering pace. With just a 3 or 4 day transformation, a soft, elegant and fast cruiser, becomes an ultra high-performance racer.

Carbon Ocean Yachts has succeeded in building and offering a platform capable of both roles without compromise, accommodating six guests in three staterooms.

The Carbon Ocean Yachts 82 is asking $8.995 million.
