    </h2>&quot;Bob&quot; originally known as the iconic &quot;Bear of Britain&quot; was built in 2001 by Carroll Marine in the USA and brought to England for its final fit out at renowned builders Ovington Boats.<br />
    During her later years, &quot;BOB&quot; has gone through an extensive optimisation process to bring her in line with modern thinking, such as square top mainsails and fixed, longer bowsprits for flying a full Asymmetric downwind sail inventory.<br />
    <br />
    Over the past 3 years, she has again benefited from extensive upgrades, with a focus on offshore safety and she now has two, watertight bulkheads fore and aft, as well as escape hatches, to allow for CAT 0 compliance and serious ocean racing!<br />
    The boat has been used under charter for the past few years and is MCA coded and so now poses both a business opportunity, but also a huge amount of bang for your buck and will for sure still have her day against the newer machines out there, particularly in the lighter air conditions!<br />
