ROTHMANS 81` – Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race Round the World.



Originally built by Paragon Composite as ‘Rothmans’ for the 1989/90 Whitbread Round the World Race (the forerunner of the Volvo Ocean Race) where she finished fourth. Rothmans originally sailed with a crew of up to 16 people and it took 131 days to complete the 33,000 nautical mile course. Since finishing The Whitbread, Rothmans has been kept in pristine condition by present owner Bob Erixon in Scandinavia, who successfully campaigned her in 2003 winning the Round Gotland race and finishing up the order in other Scandinavian regattas. 4th ÅF Offshore Race – round Gotland 2015.

This 1989 Humphreys 81ft Kevlar/Carbon/Epoxy fractional sloop Maxi Racer benefits from a full refit in 2011 and new Cummins 4BT 150hp engine in 2014. She offers an ideal corporate platform or classic maxi potential.

She is in original and fantastic condition and has been continuously maintained. Apart from some new electronics and sails, she is in her original racing trim down below. She benefits from being recently fully faired and painted including hull and topsides, new sails (1,5 mill.), continuous upgrading of the navigation instruments over the past 4 years and much more.
