Broker's Comments

Purple Haze is an extremely good looking boat, one of the prettiest that you will see but she can also deliver the prizes. She has a really good track record.
2003-2010 finished 1st/2nd/3rd in Quarter ton cup
Won Round the Island (overall-Roman bowl winner) 2005
14th overall IRC in 2014

She has had a vast amount of money spent upgrading and altering her to optimise on the IRC handicap.
Completely rebuilt 2002 by wood boat specialist Casse Tete of Hamble with new cockpit/cabin top /rudder and keel
2019-Returned to Casse Tete for topside re-epoxy
2022-Below waterline re- epoxy
Spent 2019/2020/2021 in heated warehouse

She was designed by David Thomas, purely for racing and he stated that she was the best boat he had ever designed and all who know her would not disagree.
She is marketed at an attractive price and is waiting on her double axle trailer with bespoke aluminium trailer boxes to be inspected or transported to her new home where she can be campaigned successfully.
Don't miss the boat, make an appointment to view.
