The GP42 was the attempt of International Sailing Federation and ORC to promote a new “box rule” for fast, pure racing boats in the TP52 style but smaller in dimensions and with more affordable budget.
Our GP42, originally built in 2006 as Roma, was the first ever built by Farr Design and Latini Boatyard in Rome.
In 2017, she was significantly updated to more modern specifications. The owner, with the support and guidance of Maurizio Cossutti, modified mast to allow the use of a square top main, and added a long carbon bowsprit to fit big masthead gennakers, instead of the original spinnakers on pole. Finally, there was a complete revision of weights distribution, moving ballast from bilge to keel to increase stability and therefore power, a reshaped keel fin to help upwind performances and an optimized sail-plan made this boat highly competitive again!
