AC Marine 33 - Martini Racing - $189,500

Martini Racing, the first AC33 to be offered to the Australian brokerage market, is now exclusively for sale with YOTI Melbourne.

The AC 33 is the brainchild of Melbourne boat builders AC Marine. The overall design was coordinated by them, but had input from some of the best designers in the world. The boat was conceived as an adaptable boat suitable for multiple disciplines. A state of the art NKE auto helm makes her easy to sail two up and watertight bulkheads forward and rear means she could potentially be made Cat 3 ready for ocean racing.
 
The Carbon rig was designed by Kiwi Chris Mitchell who through his company AES has designed and built rigs for several Americas cup teams amongst over a 1000 other projects. One of the many unique features of the boat that Chris instigated is the lack of a back stay. This enabled a longer boom to be added and a high top mainsail configuration. The boat can be sailed with a small crew which was also a factor in this decision.
 
The Carbon fin and bulb on the AC33 is designed by Hugh Welbourne. Hugh is internationally known for the DSS system and recently consulted the team that created the radical super maxi CQS. The Carbon components of the boat were manufactured here in Melbourne by renowned composite company Applied Composite Technology.
 
The sail plan was developed by Doyle sails Melbourne and the comprehensive wardrobe is constructed using their StratisICE material.
 
Martini Racing has proven competitive in all breezes and has multiple podium places to her name. Racing in the Super 11 class she is constantly quicker than proven production boats. She regularly clocks 18knts of the breeze and the magical 20 will be achieved at some point. This exciting boat regularly beats much larger race boats on line honours and can be done so with less crew and at a fraction of the running costs.
