What is this?

Posted on 30 March 2007 by Valencia Sailing

Update: Apparently it was an easy one as well. It is John Buchan’s brand new TP52 Glory. She was designed by Judel/Vrolijk, built in Hakes Marine in New Zealand and launched last February. We will run a feature on this newcomer to the Breitling Medcup after the end of Louis Vuitton Act 13. Concerning the 2007 Breitling Medcup, mark Friday the 13th of April on your calendars. At that day, this year’s circuit will be officially presented in Alicante, city of the first event.

While here in Valencia the anticipation is rising with less than 36 hours left until all America’s Cup teams show the true face of their yachts, the rest of the major yacht classes around the world are getting ready for this summer’s racing action.

I once again hope this quiz isn’t solve in less than an hour. Can you identify the boat? Maybe the filename of the photo can give you a hint, as well as the backdrop.

    I have to go with a new TP52 (just too big for a gp42)

    Looks like the backstay winches are copied from the MEan MAchine set-up

    Can’t give you an idea on the boat itself…
