A sublime sailing video of a racing yacht from Hodgdon Yachts!

Published by Editorial Team on 12th November 2014


Designed and built to win every race she enters and where possible beat existing records along the way, Hodgdon Yachts COMANCHE sails at 30kn+ on her way to Sydney.  Seeing this 30.5m super-fast superyacht sailing at speeds upwards of 30 knots it is almost certain she will be the talk of the regatta circuit wherever she goes. The video was made by the well-known Yachting photographer Onne van der Wal, who used a range of equipment, including a drone operated by his son, to capture the launch of COMANCHE.

Designed by well-known yachtsman Jim Clark, this 100’ carbon fibre race, was on her way to Charleston, SC where she is due to meet a large container ship that will take her across the oceans down under to Australia. The competitors at the upcoming Sydney-Hobart race, where Comanche is due to participate in December 2014, as well as her crew, are all keen to see her perform at this major event.
