Broker’s Comments

Fresh out of the shed in 2020, the Dunning GP44 RIGADOON is showing a large amount of potential in the few shakedown races she has competed in. Designed by Harry Dunning, she has the design features common in the top racing yachts today, most strikingly the reverse flare in the foredeck maximising the structure of the yacht and also optimising the aerodynamics of the rig.

She may seem radical from first view, but the design philosophy is well proven and up to date.

The cockpit layout has been well optimised to keep the centre of gravity low and maximise working area, with pit winches on centreline and semi-pedestals for primary winches.

She has the best 3Di wardrobe you can consider from North, having been very lightly used, with some of them not having yet seen the light of day.

A full Harken winch and hydraulics package keeps everything under control, and above deck the high and very high modulus Southern Spars rig is the absolute latest in design aerodynamics. With the adjustable forestay and deflectors as you would find in the TP52 fleet, she is easily adjusted to keep the power on at all times.
