This boat is a no compromise racer yet features a comfortable and roomy interior – powerful upwind, awesome downwind!

With the masthead or fractional spinnaker this is a no compromise racer – it can take you at a pace you’ve never been before. The large carbon fibre rig dismantles into 2 pieces for ease of trailering.

The T870 has excelled in Europe, Australia and the USA where it has won many races in its first year. Its light weather performance is second to none.

The rotating prod assists in sailing low downwind angles with asymmetric spinnaker. The light weight of the yacht means towing is easy with a large car.
Launching can be from ramp or crane using the keel mounted lift point.

Drawings are also available for the home builder, some components can be supplied by us to help the build process.
