FIBRE Mechanics and Carkeek Design announce the CF-520, a new 52ft IRC racing yacht. The yacht is built in IM carbon pre-preg and Nomex honeycomb from full production tooling, and incorporates the latest thinking from the innovative Carkeek Design office. A high-end racing yacht without the cost of one-off yacht design and tooling. Boat one is due to launch in early May 2021, with build slots available for deliveries in the second half of 2021 and March 2022.
The first of the series is principally for offshore racing and will feature a water ballast tank system designed to reduce the crew numbers to 8. However, Carkeek Design Partners and FIBRE Mechanics are making a wide range of equipment options available allowing subsequent boats to be configured to suit different racing programmes.
