    Don Shead - Planatec 40

    This is your chance to own a piece of racing history! 'Uno Embassy' was designed by the world renowned powerboat designer Don Shead, she was at that time the latest in cutting edge technology in the world of offshore powerboat racing.

    After being discovered in a warehouse, untouched for 34 years, she was shipped to Washington state USA 2009, where she had a complete refit for the 50thAnniversary Cowes – Torquay – Cowes Race in 2010, she finished 3rd in Class A. 

    The refit was very extensive with everything being replaced including; Cobra power 725 HP V8s, Mercruiser 3A outdrives, high performance hydraulic steering, allowing 'Uno Embassy; to be good for just over 80mph. With the Embassy F1 airscoop and original livery colours this is a real classic race boat.

    The owner put her back in the barn in 2009 as he purchased another race boat, with only 14 hours on the engines and sitting on a custom trailer ready to tow away, she really is a ‘turnkey’ boat allowing you to enter into the next offshore powerboat race in class A.
