But those conditions were going to be punishing for a fully set-up boat - but much more so for one that had only been launched just over 12 hours earlier!

Thanks

Couldn't agree more, it's an awesome bit of kit.

She is a new brand - PPG. Also a new design as well.

Pretty exciting project, the boat is a real combination of performance, style and practicality. The boat is 11metres , triple step hull form, forward cabin - but with many lay-out possibilities.

She will be exhibited at the Southampton boat show.
