Comanche is a 100 ft (33 m) maxi yacht. She was designed in France by VPLP and Guillaume Verdier and built in the United States by Hodgdon Yachts for Dr. James H. Clark and christened as Comanche. Comanche holds the 24-hour sailing record for monohulls covering 618 nm in the 24 hours (averaging 25.75 knots, or 47.7 kph).
Designed by VPLP/Verdier and constructed in the largest marine oven in the United States in just 12 months, Superyacht Comanche is intended to be the fastest monohull ever built. She is constructed of pre-preg carbon fiber, resulting in an extremely light and strong hull and features a canting keel, daggerboards, water ballast and large sail area.
The boat is the culmination of a two-year project. Built at Hodgdon Yachts in Maine, Comanche was sailed for the first time on October 13 and will be spiced with Australian flavour partly because her co-owner is Kristy Hinze-Clark, a former supermodel from Australia married to Jim Clark. ...
