Class 40 - Concise 8

Current Name: Concise 8

No newer names

A brutally fast racing machine for the Concise racing team.

The product of a huge research effort and the first yacht we extensively optimised in the computer using our neural network based optimisation techniques, it has proved to be extremely fast and won plenty of races, probably still one of the fastest in the class. Check out nicely edited video in "additional media" tab below, showing the boat at speed.
