Phan is a GP42 designed by Botin & Carkeek and built by King Marine, optimised for inshore racing.
Having just undergone some exciting modifications, she will be ready and raring to go for the Caribbean season in 2019!
Phan is available to charter from December through to May for any of the regattas in the Caribbean or for some warm water pre-season training.
Phan is in immaculate condition having been meticulously maintained her whole life. This summer she has been in the shed at Longitude Cero in Valencia, having some exciting modifications, including a new rudder and deeper keel.
The new keel will give greater righting moment and more up wind power, and the new rudder will be larger and with different balance, to give more low speed manoeuvrability and lower load when high speed reaching.
A full kite take down system has been added, the deck layout has been optimised with many of the control lines re-run, and the pedestal overdrive has been upgraded for better kite gybing speeds.
Phan has a full wardrobe of North Sails, B&G 3000 instruments, a smooth underwater finish and a Gori 420 racing prop.

You will notice that the links above take you to a website for LV Yachting. In the past there has been some confusion at events between us and another similarly named company and, in order to clearly identify our brand, along with our proven record in offering bespoke racing yacht charter packages, we have made the decision to change our name from Performance Yacht Charter to LV Yachting.
This will not be an instant change, but it does mean we are marketing next year’s events under a new name. If you have any questions about the change please give us a call or send us an email.
