Art Equity Mahligai

Art Equity Mahligai


This Sydney 46 has raced to Hobart five times now and has finished every one. In last year’s Rolex Sydney Hobart she improved her 2011 assault on the PHS trophy where she finished ninth overall to finish fifth overall and second in PHS Division 1. Her best result was in the 2010 race, when she was fourth overall in PHS and won Division 1, racing as NSC Mahligai. In 2009, was third in Division 1, while in 2008, sailed under IRC and finished 61st overall.

Before Murray Owen and Jenny Kings owned Mahligai, she spent most of her life racing in Asia. She is berthed at the CYCA, but will race under the burgee of the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club in New Zealand, in a nod to Owen and Kings’ place of birth.
