Financial Crisis, currently holding second overall in the Global Ocean
Race is for sale or long term charter immediately after the end of the
race, due to finish in Les Sables D'Olonne around June 8th 2012.

With personal debts in the tens of thousands of pounds and currently
unemployed I must sell the boat ASAP! All meaningful offers considered for
a quick sale. For furthe info contact Ella at or
call +447701060582


With two roundings of Cape Horn, this must be the most proven of all
Class40s, extensively surveyed during the project and with a new carbon
mast in May 2011 Financial Crisis is the only Class40 still competing in
the race that has not required any structural work during the race and
would be an excellent choice for any project wishing to enter the 2013
event on a tight budget, with everything in place to go again after some
ordinary maintenance work.

She would also be an excellent boat for other races such as the OSTAR
2013, the Transat Jaque Vabre 2013 or the Route du Rhum. With an extensive
circuit of races ranging from the inshore Class40 Worlds to the next round
the world challenge starting in just 18 months the boat will be guaranteed
to stand up to the ambitions of her new owner.

Alternatively, the boat could be used for a lucrative skippered charter
business with all the paperwork in place for immediate commercial use.

Benefits of this boat compared to other similar boats on the market:
- New mast 2011
- Extensive sail wardrobe, many spare sails
- Extensive survey history including Ultra sounds scans of mast and keel
- Extensive inventory of equipment and spares
- Fully equipped to Category Zero standards
- Fully equipped for corporate sailing, skippered charter and commercial
- MCA coded for commercial work, no need to dodge the law when taking
paying guests or sponsors on board
- Ready to race in the next GOR, expensive 180 inversion test done!
- VAT reclaimable if bought by another business or VAT exempt if bought
out of the EU
- Probably the cheapest Akilaria RC1 one the market!!!
- The experience and lessons learned from 2 round the world races included
in the price
- Any work required to the boat can be supplied at preferential rates or
included as a package in the sale agreement

The boat will be available for viewings in Les Sables D'Olonne, France,
between the 8th and the 17th of June and in Gosport, UK, after the 20th of
June 2012.

I would also be personally available for training or advice on managing a
GOR or other racing project for the new owners.
