Racing Boats

Star Chaser

Star Chaser is an excellent example of a Nautor Swan 51 designed by German Frers. These yachts are renowned for their fantastic sailing abilities and quality of construction, Star Chaser has been professionally maintained since new and is immaculately appointed throughout.

Star Chaser is extensively equipped for both racing and cruising, she’s safe, seaworthy and fast with a very comfortable interior fit-out. The deck layout is very practical and adapts equally well to either flying around the race course or cruising gently between islands. Star Chaser is an easy yet rewarding boat to sail and her size and design pedigree set her above most other charter yachts.

Star Chaser was first seen at the Newport Boat Show in 1981. At the time she was the first new German Frers design to appear on the US East Coast and she caused quite a stir being heralded as the ’Queen’ of the show.

Northern Child

Northern Child, a beautifully presented Swan 51' yacht, is a well established business specialising in cruising, racing and corporate charters in the UK, Mediterranean and the Caribbean. We offer our clients a range of charters from individual berths through to full boat charters.

Northern Child was built in Pietesaari, Finland, by Nautor Swan, which are widely acclaimed to be the finest production sailing yachts in the world. Swan yachts are renowned for their outstanding sailing abilities, their unfailing quality of construction and craftsmanship, their luxurious accommodation and their classic elegant lines.

Northern Child is one of naval architect German Frers' outstanding all-round designs and shares the same performance pedigree of 'Blizzard', a famous 51ft Admiral's Cup racer, except that Northern Child was also fitted with a lavish cruising interior and the hull sections were enlarged to accommodate the increase in displacement. Fast and easy to sail, she has four comfortable cabins sleeping up to 12 people. Northern Child is a fine balance between a racing and cruising yacht.

Patriot” is a Nautor’s Swan 48 built in Finland in 1972. She is one of a legendary series of early Swans to come off the drawing board of Olin Stephens which established Nautor’s as the premier producer of ocean class cruisers in the world. Although Swans are continuously changing with the times, these early S&S models are, and probably always will be, held in reverence by those who value a truly powerful ocean racer- cruiser in the tradition of “Dorade”, “Stormy Weather” and “Bolero.”

Big Spirit

Big Spirit is a 72ft steel sailing yacht built at the Devonport yards in 2000 specifically to provide the safest platform for 18 people from all walks of life to come together as a team and complete what was billed as the toughest yacht race in the world, sailing around the world against prevailing winds and currents.

Challenge Business commissioned 12 identical yachts to be built based on all the experience they had gain from already running the 1992 and 1996 Global Challenge races with the original 67ft design. The new 72ft class were built to be stronger, safer, faster and more comfortable to sail and live aboard.

Big Spirit which was originally known as Challenge Business #45 and has a very successful record having recording two safe and successful round the world races (BT Global Challenge 2000/1 and the Global Challenge 2004/5), winning the last race in 2004/2005 and is still the holder of the class record for the round the island race on the south coast.

Since purchasing Big Spirit in October 2007 it has undergone a complete refit and refurbishment (the second in it’s short life!) and is now ready for more adventures, albeit with some creature comforts thrown in to make things a little more pleasant!

The design was for a "performance cruising yacht" easily handled by a couple and intended for world voyaging.
