The Condor 40 is one of the most beautiful
boats to ever sail the seven seas, and the fastest production sailboat
ever built, with a average cruising speed in the double digits she
is not shy to exceed the 20 knots mark . The futuristic Condor 40
racing multihulls were built in Annapolis, Md. from 1985 to 1991. The
boat was designed to OSTAR Class III specifications and therefore, was
set up so one person could sail it if need be. Only twenty-one were
built, making them a rare boat. This one was set up for fast offshore
cruising and racing - holding here to a minimalistic weight as the
initial designer intended it ...
