About this Botin & Carkeek GP42


"Tokoloshe" is an impressively upgraded IRC 42 from Botin and Carkeek that has been optimized for IRC.

A brand new, offshore capable mast in 2020 on top of the huge upgrades in 2014 and again in 2017 make this one of the best "all-rounder" FAST 40's on the circuit.
Impressive IRC successes both inshore and offshore, including a 2nd in class at the 2015 Fastnet make this a very attractive bang for buck boat.

Winner of 13/14 races this year in the FAST 40 circuit, since new rig install.

Ultra High Modulus mast tube and the first FAST 40 to have new, dedicated tooling for refined mast structure, aero and design.

Boat was originally built for the 2009 Med Cup circuit, as the GP42 Madrid-Caser Endesa, inspired by the ETNZ TP52 hull.

She was one of the last GP42's built and in 2010 won the Med Cup championship, with her sistership second.

In 2014 the boat was then brought to the UK and optimized for IRC racing and raced both inshore and offshore.

As the UK FAST 40 scene began to take shape, the optimization continued and she is in the top echelon of IRC boats worldwide.
