About this TP 52

English


ROCKALL is now for sale..
Originally built as BRIBON for the King of Spain, before she became "Flying Jenny", "Ice Fire", "RKO" and now "ROCKALL"

Her most recent ownership has by far and away been her most successful and competitive spell, with the last two owners putting her through what can only be described as a "complete overhaul" when they purchased her in 2016 and again in 2017.
Under the direction of Gavin Brady, ROCKALL (then RKO) was transformed into one of Australia's most competitive TP's and arguably there is not a better boat that can tackle both inshore and offshore racing with the same degree of confidence. 2016 was a big turning point for the boat, with a new sail inventory and carbon rigging installed, it really pushed the performance in the right direction.

Further upgrades in 2017 and again in 2018 from the current owner, include more offshore sails, a new PAC 52 designed rudder and a new B&G H5000 system, mean this boat is pretty turn-key for her next campaign.
The boat has not sailing since late 2018.

Get in touch to learn more about the inventory and performance characteristics.

ROCKALL V is fitted with a 3-spreader carbon mast, built and designed by Southern Spars.

She is also fitted with a lightweight carbon, high aspect offshore boom, capable of two reefs.

The boat has a fitted carbon bowsprit, with the facility for a 2:1 tackline arrangement. The bowsprit is longer than standard in an effort to optimise for IRC.

Having sailed the boat, it is clear a huge amount of time and money has been invested in her over the last two years, with project management coming from some very experienced people.

The boat carries enough internal structure to be pushed offshore, whilst she has the horsepower to work on an inshore platform also.

A MUST see if you want to be hoarding IRC or ORC trophies over the next few years!
