Recently refitted Tyker design, built by FR Nautisme and designed by Julien Marin in 2006. These early pioneers of the 'Class 40' offer excellent value for money when maintained in good condition, with the recent works and equipment upgrades this boat certainly fits the bill for low budget entry level racing and is in ready to sail condition. Superbly finished for a 'vintage' category boat, these early prototypes were renowned for their speed and versatility and less optimised for specific conditions (unlike their modern progeny) making them better all-round performers. This boat had some good racing success under the care of a number of top flight French sailors including Patrick Morvan and Yvan Noblet. ‘Impulse’ as she is now known, won the inaugural Les Sable- Madeira- Les Sable in 2007 and in the same year finished 4th in the Transat Jacques Vabre being beaten to third place by her sister ship.
She has had much work to improve both her performance, efficiency and general condition over recent years with works including, structural reinforcements to bring the boat in line with more modern and rigorous construction standards, repainted interior and exterior surfaces, new deck hardware and layout optimisation in 2018, new navigation station, keel and pins X ray inspected in 2017, new rudder bearings in 2018, rig overhauled and refitted with survey and most running rigging replaced, electronics refreshed in 2014 with plenty of new hardware, engine completely overhauled from the bottom end up in 2014.
