Absolutely ready to go with new set of sails!

  Winner Rolex Malta Middle Sea Race 2018 in IRC2 and 2nd position ORC2!
She was built in 2000 by Carroll Marine in the USA.  and campaigned professionally by Team Chessie Racing for 3 seasons (2000-2002).   She is perfect for serious handicap offshore or inshore racing in both ORCi & IRC. She is at the hands of her 2nd owner only, both of them dedicated international campaigners; she has always been dry-sailed and kept in immaculate condition. From 2003, is lying in the dry and sunny Greece, competing successfully in the Med region.   Owners comments

Owners acquired the boat in 2003 from George Collins in USA, the last Privateer that raced the VOR. She is a full carbon racing yacht built on an One Design prescription in 2000 from Carroll Marine USA, and untill today had only the two owners mentioned. One Design translates to strong, long lasting, well thought, unbreakable, all round, fast, no rule compromise and perfectly equipped with Hall carbon spars, Lewmar, Harken, Spinlock, Navtec gear and Yanmar engine. But One Design from Bruce Farr means more than anything else User Friendly.

Team Optimum, coming from a 36-footer, managed in their second season only(2004) to win the Aegean Rally and the Rolex Middle Sea Race (in IRC & IMS) back to back with a crew of usual suspects (amateurs). In 2008 ORCi World Championship we finished 5th overall and 1st Corinthians and in 2016 ORCi European Championship 9th overall. OPTIMUM 3 has reached the podium in the Aegean Rally 11 times, including 5 times 1st.

She has always been dry-sailed, spending no more than 60 days per year in the water, the rest on its US made custom cradle. OPTIMUM 3 has been maintained and upgraded rigorously. Nowadays, she sports a 2,05 meter carbon bowsprit, flies 300 sqm masthead spinnakers that are lowered through a new XL bow hatch and hoists a 100+ sqm mainsail with a square top of 1,6m supported by 3 carbon battens/systems that slide on a special glued-on low profile Hall Spars/Antal dual mast groove track that has proved extremely efficient and versatile. The B&G/Ockham electronics package is PC driven, updated and runs Deckman and Expedition tactical software and all info needed is readily available on any smart screen on board through extended Wi-Fi. Navtec Hydraulics for boomvang, outhaul and at the mast step are fully operational and are reliable solutions to control the loads even in gale force conditions like the ones we encountered in 2004, 2007 and 2014 in the Rolex Middle Sea Race.
