40 Years of 40's

July 2 1999

This week Torresen Marine is playing host to a pair of 40 foot sailboats.  Both are at our full service yacht yard for service work.  These 40 footers are 40 years apart in date of manufacture.

Just arrived via truck is a brand new Farr 40 Morrigan.   This is hull number 46 in this wildly popular offshore one design.  Expect to see Morrigan debuting in next week's Chicago to Mackinac race.

Also at Torresen Marine is the Block Island 40 Bantu.   Bantu has won several major offshore races this decade despite being built when Eisenhower was in the White House.

The photos show two ways to make a successful 90's racing boat.  Take a look to see which you prefer.
