GBR 43 - 2023 Hollom

In late 2022 we sold our lovely World Championship winning boat, “Jean Genie” (GBR 42). It was like waving goodbye to a child - so much passion invested into her!

We immediately pulled the trigger on another Hollom designed International 5.5 Metre, the yet to be named GBR 43.

She is from the same mould as GBR 42 and will sit in exactly the same place within the rule in terms of displacement, length and sail area.

We have made some slight differences to keel placement, the mast and sails. Each are in the category of “marginal gains”. Very much refinements to what was a very sweet package in GBR 42.


The hull is being expertly crafted in pre-preg S-Glass cloth by Gavin and Glyn Tappenden at Composite Craft, UK - to a structural design created by Suzy Russell.

In early Feb 2023, she was moved across to David Heritage Racing Yachts for assembly of appendages, fitting out, fairing and coating.

Our scheduled launch dates in April 2023. You can follow progress here.
