Jazz Player

Jazz Player



Launched in 2004, Jazz Player was designed by New Zealander Brett Bakewell-White, and is the realisation of the winning design entry for a competition sponsored by Yachting New Zealand to create a modern one-design racer/cruiser.

Andrew Lawrence has owned the yacht for about 18 months, and a recent highlight was winning PHD Division 1 of Melbourne’s 2008 Range Series. The Z39 is considered to be an excellent all-round performer, and her crew will be working hard to maximise the yacht's potential.
