Vesper is a very special boat for us, as it has won the most prestigious regattas worldwide. Not many boats can boast winning the TP52 World Championship twice, and the 2008 Audi MedCup under the Quantum Racing name.

The boat was built by Ximo Lopez (Longitud Cero), with composite engineering by SP/Gurit. It has a very good Hall Spar mast and the keel and bulb were changed in 2010 when it was optimized for IRC by the Vesper Team.

Current owner Jim Swartz and his team has then continued the winning legacy, by being the first boat to win back to back the Rolex Big Boat Series in 2011 and 2012. Among the special people in this team, we can find project manager Ken Keefe, tactitian Gavin Brady and boat captain Jamie Gale.
