Class40

A strong and diverse international class

Conceived in 2004 as a category to encourage greater access to ocean racing, the Class40 was taken up with exceptional enthusiasm in 2006, barely ten months after the writing of the measurement rule. To date, nearly 150 boats have left the boatyard, designed by a range of international architects. This class is based on simple rules, where technological changes are constrained for financial reasons, but where the search for developments in the shape of the hull is open and therefore extremely varied.
