The weather in Newport during the sea trials and for the offshore passage south was anything but glorious, but by all accounts, superyacht COMANCHE is already starting to deliver impressive performances.

Although COMANCHE superyacht’s performance data is still being kept under wraps, racing skipper Ken Read has been wearing a rather broad smile lately.

The 100ft pre-preg carbon racing wonder was launched at Hodgdon’s shipyard in East Boothbay, Maine, just a few short weeks ago. With super yacht COMANCHE now officially on the way to Sydney, Hodgdon CEO Tim Hodgdon said: “All of us at Hodgdon are proud to have been associated with this important build, and we wish Jim, Kristy, Kenny and the entire crew all the best for Sydney-Hobart and all of their racing ventures.”
