Definitely one of VPLP's best looking designs! Looks fast even at anchor
. These have always been head-turners even in the BVI where there are lots of dream boats. My recollection was that the 55 was extended to 57 to improve performance and that the hulls were not balsa cored but GRP w/carbon fibre.
Sadly, I've only had cocktails on one of these at anchor
, but was seriously impressed. Jeanneau's high tech division hit the ball with this one.
Mike, Congrats on Selling Jeannius! Is it really this happiest day in a sailor's life?
