This is a production boat and it had to be a NZ boat
you are going to understand why, but for now it is enough to know that she has just won the Sydney Hobart in compensated.
It is made in two versions: A racer and a cruiser racer being the major difference a existence of a higher cabin since being this a semi custom boat the interior comfort and quality is left much to the owner desires. Both have cantig keels.
Initially, back in 2004 the boat was a racer with a flat cabin but today almost all have the cruiser-racer configuration, at least in what regards the cabin.
The hull is remarkably modern for a 2004 design (the cabin design is more recent). A very nice boat:
Anyway even the cruiser-racer is (on all cases I know) used much more as a racer than a cruiser but I don't see why the boat cannot be used as a performance cruiser.

and look how she sails:
Yes, a NZ boat
It has the spirit and the speed.
