If you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it

Published on April 23rd, 2013

When four of the J class yachts elected The Superyacht Cup Palma (June 19-22) as their first European regatta of the 2013 season, Hanuman was scheduled to sail from the Caribbean to the Pacific, but following on from her spectacular performance at the St Barths Bucket (March 28-31), they have decided to head back across the Atlantic and on to the Mediterranean.

This will be the first time 5 of these historic yachts have raced together in Europe ever.

Hanuman was built by Royal Huisman Shipyard and launched in 2009 for owner Jim Clark. Helmed by double Volvo Ocean Race winner Ken Read, they took 4 wins in in 4 races in St Barth’s, an impressive result in this highly competitive fleet. The racing was tactical, close and intense, where every maneuver showed gains and losses between the boats.

In preparation for their 2013 racing Hanuman underwent a full optimization programme directed by Read and is now listed for sale: http://y.co/yacht/hanuman/
