Yacht Details

AAG Big One, designed by Bruce Farr and built by Eric Goetz Shipyard, has a colourful history competing at the former Whitbread Round the World Race then broke the China Sea Race record as "Beau Geste" before being purchased by the eventual Volvo Ocean race runner up team Assa Abloy as a training yacht. The boat got completly refitted to comply with V0 60 standards and is kept in a very competitive condition since.
