  1. Yes Darling it is not good as I said little or no marketing effort... Some boats changing hands as like any other boat as some owners either find out It is not their cup of tea, Or There is no good fleet in area, Or Priorities change... Or.. Vsvs 2nd owners usually very happy with the boat. And well sailed boats still taking podium under ORC, PHRF, SMS in 3 continents. Stay safe...
  2. Well unfortunately not many... But there was very limited marketing effort and no boats shows attended over this time period. Stagg pursued some leads for 1 year but it was a transition time for them with retirements and health problems... in 2019 and 2020 no effort at all... 1 boat sold in Turkey. The boats have been updated over this time as well... if you have any particular detailed questions write to Sciftci@magmarin-tr.com

  6. We had hull1 rated for IRC in Istanbul Turkey for IRC and raced a few races. It was with pin head main. we had 1,0721 in 2012. It was rated as is. I would imagine it is now a little better because of age credit (with pin head main). It was just a little slower than F30 at that time. The boat is very powerful down the breeze. In a geographic course in correct conditions you can win. W/L it depends really in the fleet you are racing against. Lining up with bigger 35 foooter boats with big masts, you are loosing at start and can not cover later. Yes it is fun. 8-10 knots the b
