A Hobart novice, this is the former Kokomo, then owned by development tycoon, Lang Walker, who campaigned at major Farr 40 one-design events in Australia and overseas with his fair share of success. Andrew and Amber Butler previously owned a Dufour 36e before making the step up to this Farr 40 they renamed Komodo to raise awareness of the endangered Komodo dragon. Together, they made their debut in the 2015 Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race and finished 47th overall, keeping company with the likes of Wild Rose through tricky conditions on Days 1 and 2. The iQGroup and Team Komodo Racing have partnered for the 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart. The boat is distinguishable by the Komodo dragon on its main with an iQ over its head and a huge iQ on the headsail.
