    REO 770 starts production

    We started production of Reo770. the boat is development of Andrew York's REO Speedwagon. While REO Speedwagon proved itself against bigger boats in various regattas over the last 3 years, REO770 will have one design rules as well. more info is here.

    REO 770 starts production

    Hull1 demolded with sole and internals laminated in... First 2 hulls going to Sydney. Now taking orders for early 2019 delivery. Www.Reosportboats.com
  3. The Donovan 26 One Design is an evolution of the successful GP26 built by Wraceboats. The design demonstrated exceptional speed and control at regattas in the U.S., Europe and Asia, regularly finishing ahead of the competition and gaining praise from the crews who sailed aboard. Details to follow... Spinsheet 12-18 V4.pdf
  4. Hi Crashtestdummy, As you might know I was joking when I wrote I sold my 26, I brought my boat, Demo/Company Boat 2604 to USA to be sold. She is in good hands and winning almost everything as RattleNRum, skippered by Mike Beasley. The clients love the boat... I think the main reason for lack of interest is the success of J70, capturing a very large share of the market at that size.
  5. Sail4Beer, yes having J80 as the first in class was bad. Which also was bad was the rating J80 had not just for us for the whole fleet. we only saw the J80 at the start. If you looked at finish times you would understand. Crew on Rattle N Rum on KWRW16 was not perfect either. Anyways, Wraceboats GP26, or Donovan26 has proved itself against bigger Fareast28 in other races as well including Charleston2017 and 2018.

    NASS race Annapolis to Oxford 9/8

    RattleNRum, Wraceboats Donovan26, 2nd fastest boat on the course after a Farr400 3 sail reaching doing 16knots, on their way to victory in PhrfA2
  9. Hi Crashtestdummy, Still 8 boats on east coast and unfortunately no new builds. stagg has a used boat on the market due to owner relocating. Please see https://www.staggyachts.com for FatKid. Also pls contact them for info and pricing for a Donovan26OD. RattleNRum is doing 16 knots, 3 sail reaching on their way to victory @64th NASS race to Oxford.
  10. Correction to above, RattleNRum had the 2nd fastest run on the course after Farr400 Jeroboam. As I Previously looked at 1st and 2nd places on corrected time and did not realise the 2hr 59min15sec finish time which corrected to 3rd.
  11. Which boat is F400. I will check. nevertheless pretty impressive result for a 26footer.
  12. Massive congratulations to Team RattleNRum and skipper Mike Beasley winning 64th NASS Race to Oxford in 20 boat PHRFA2 Division. They also broke the top speed record for the boat with 20.8knots. the results are here Rattle N Rum ran the 29.3 mile course in 3hrs 13mins 36secs. Fastest finish for a monohull.
  13. thany you PeterRoss, ''beauty is in the eye of the beholder''
  14. Congratulations to Team Rattle N Rum, finishing the Annapolis Yacht Club's Wednesday Eve Racing Series3 in 3RD Place in PHRF1 the results are here.
  15. Congratulations to Team Rattle N Rum, winning Annapolis Yacht Club's Wednesday Eve Racing Series2 with straight bullets Their worst result on course was second across the line. the results are here .
  16. I did not hear such a thing ... We are following ISAF guideline for the class rules with an aim to establish the boat as a internationally recognized class like F40, F30. (Both of these boats gained this recognition under the management of principally same people form Stagg Yachts)
  17. Thnx. Previously the understanding was I was understating. Conclusion is... no bad effect on existing boats...
  18. Ok, mast maker just replied the gooseneck kit will be available for the retrofitting. I will pay the price for the gooseneck kits. Boat owner will pay for the workmanship... We prefer this to be done @ Beasley Marine. Longer bowsprit 760 USD before shipment. New sails depends on material, brand but I am pretty sure it will be sub 15,000USD for Main, Jib and 2 asymetrics as a starter package (no 3DL/I but laminate sails). So retrofitting to D26 will start from Bowsprit + 2 asymetrics = roughly 9000USD and may go up to Bowsprit+ gooseneck+ main+jib+2 asymetrics= roughly 16,000USD existing boats will be grandfathered so the owners may choose to upgrade when they want after class is established.
  19. In light of recent decision, only new bowsprit (apart from sails) is necessary for D26 upgrade. New Bowsprit 760 USD before shipment Still waiting final confirmation from mast maker for the gooseneck kit.
  20. Thank you Trimfast for paying close attention... My bad...Initially there was some discussion of longer mast, then the decision was made to lower the gooseneck to achieve same Main sail area increase. We are looking into lowering the gooseneck on existing boat masts, that involves some surgery. We did not receive the final answer from Mast Maker yet on this procedure or will it be possible... BUT... keeping the boom same is fresh news as of yesterday. Stagg will update their page... So the retrofitting is Cheaper than what is written above and originally thought. Existing boats with the exception of one inboard engine boat will be grandfathered and can race as is... One design for sure... Stagg have a letter of intent for the Donovan 26 One Design racing. We are having some enquiries, no boat ordered yet. Rules and Specs will be finalized before first boat is ordered... Stagg is marketing. For detailed infromation, please contact them directly.
  21. Hey give me a call I will tell. Sukru has my number. I am nor Joking either. I will include your order with others... PS: as a private client for 1 set of course you can not get that price from the mast maker.
  22. Chashtestdummy, actual numbers... Carbon Mast, Boom and Sprit they are producers prices. No need for new running rigging. Standing rod rigging is included. I do not have the prices for sails. Also more likely an new boom will not be necessary as recent debrief after CRW shoved there is less to be gained. Keeping the cost for retrofitting even more reasonable. If you have any further and detailed questions pls DM. thx
