'Big news' for those that race medium sized keelboats, is that the first Flying Tiger 10 arrived in New Zealand – the first ever opportunity for owners and syndicates to purchase a brand new line-honours racer for a total cost of $155,000 incl. GST and ready to go.
Long on the waterline and lean on the beam, the boats, from the drawing board of American designer Bob Perry, were inspired by the legendary New Zealand racer cruiser class, the Ross 930.
Flying Tiger Boats fulfill the promise of a high performance sportboat that is easily campaigned by non professionals. With established fleets racing worldwide and the support of a strong International Class Association, the FT 10 is certain to remain the smart choice for those demanding exhilarating sailing along with exceptional value. The new FT 7.5 further achieves the same performance distinction of its bigger sister while offering a yacht that is equally suited for high level racing or singlehanded daysailing. With one design rules in effect and legs in hiking, the FT 7.5 will make the old feel young and the young feel invincible.
