Tigress is a fine example of the Flying Tiger 7.5. A boat that will light up on the race course but can also be day sailed because of her deep keel, wide beam, and chined hull. This FT 7.5 is raced and daysailed by her owners who are in there mid 60's. San Diego has a fleet of 3 boats racing in South Bay but the boat can easily be trucked cross country (trailer not included) and has even been a popular choice for sailing schools and charter companies around the world.

Torqeedo 1003 electric motor in great shape for getting in and out of the slip and out to and back from the race course. No messy diesel or gas to deal with. The extremely efficient Torqeedo is a modular motor comprised of 3 components (shaft/prop, battery and electronic tiller) and is so light weight it is easy getting it on and off the transom very quickly. This is NOT your grandfather’s electric trolling motor, this is a full up outboard that can easily move the boat at 6 kts.
