Hudson Yachts Dominates

Caribbean Regatta

Season!

RORC CARIBBEAN 600 HH66-01 R-Six met some fierce competition at this year's Caribbean 600 but performed well in this grueling race. The two, purpose-built mod 70 racing trimarans, Phaedo 3 and Maserati, took first and second place almost breaking the race record. R-six come in a very respectable 3rd. Though barely 24 hours off the back of a trans-Atlantic crossing, R-Six team 6601 managed to turn the boat around and ready her for the 600-mile blast around 11 Caribbean islands. This was true testament to the durability, character and strength of both crew and boat. The Caribbean 600 was the team's qualifying race for the Royal Ocean Racing Club's famous Fastnet Race, due to take place in the UK in August this year.

St. MAARTEN HEINEKEN REGATTA More congratulations were due for R-Six Team 6601 who went on to compete in the Offshore Multihull 2017 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. Facing off against three HYG built Gunboat 60s, this time they took 2nd place and it was an incredible regatta! We are thrilled with the result and so proud of the boat and the team on R-SIX, who sailed a hard-fought regatta against some very experienced and well-sailed opponents.

NALA TAKES FIRST! As regatta season continues in the Caribbean, HH66-03 'Nala' debuted with the 'Round the Rocks race on Thursday. The circumnavigation of St. John is a great warm-up for both boat and crew. They then faced off against multiple HYG built Gunboat 60s and the Bieker 53 in the St. Thomas International Regatta, and what a race! On the final day HH66-03 'Nala' was tied in points with Fujin at six points each. Winner of the last race would take all! In the end HH66-03 Nala took first on corrected time finishing the regatta strong and securing 1st place overall! Photo: Dean Barnes for St. Thomas International Regatta

READY TO DEPART HH55 - We got our first look at the newly completed HH55-01 ' Minnehaha' earlier this month whilst she was finishing her final days of sea trials. She is due to depart China at the end of the month, and make her way to the USA where her new owners await. Commissioning captain Thomas Jonsson reported "Sea trials went exceptionally well. We placed every moving part under load, including opening and closing the large salon sun roof whilst under sail and powered up. Though we came close, we didn't quite manage to fly a hull during trials. We managed to reach 23 knots in 20 knots of wind and, even when we were sailing conservatively, we easily reached our target speeds. Despite our best efforts, nothing broke! The results we got on HH55-01 were exceptionally good all-round and I was certainly impressed."  Her owners came out to China to visit the yard and were here for the final few days of sea trials. Both were very impressed with their new boat's performance and said she was "beyond all expectations".

The team had a HPC48 on display and the new owner found the boat so appealing he cut a check right there and then. The 3-cabin version will now go on to join the Virgin Motor Yacht growing charter fleet this Autumn and will now be made available for bareboat charter!
