Skandia

Skandia

 

A line honours win has eluded Grant Wharington so far, but with this brand new super maxi, one of two 98 footers in the fleet, he is preparing for a trans-Tasman duel with Zana for the trophy.  Australian designed and built, this boat is carbon fibre from bow to stern, and features a canting keel and a highly experienced crew.  Skandia and Zana are the biggest yachts ever to contest the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
