New Zealand Built F-41 Sailing

Updated August, 2005

Paul Symes' new F-41 'Duette' was launched late last year in Christchurch, New Zealand. Built by Gavin Cooke, the finish and fitout on this boat is outstanding, and it has set a new benchmark for F-41s. One could not find a better fitted out and finished boat.
