BLACK LEGEND 4 2019 57' 5" BLACK PEPPER Cruising/Racing Sailboat

Port Grimaud France €1,695,000 EUR

The 2019 57' 5" BLACK PEPPER Code 2.1 Cruising/Racing Sailboat BLACK LEGEND 4 is a sail boat for sale located in Port Grimaud, France.

Awesome Marc Lombard IMOCA 60-inspired offshore speed machine in full carbon with centreboard, water ballast, easily managed rig-plan.

The flagship of the Black Pepper fleet, the Code 2 is the result of a design collaboration between Marc Lombard and Armel Tripon (winner of Route de Rhum 2018, and IMOCA 60 racer) to design an IMOCA 60 inspired offshore speed machine equally at home racing as she is to very fast cruising. Constructed
in full carbon fibre with Axxon carbon rig, twin rudders, centreboard and water ballast, she is perfectly configured for racing and cruising duties on both sides of the Atlantic.
Recently built by the Shipyard, she will be going into the water early September 2019, and from then visible in Mediterranean.
She represents a very rare opportunity to acquire what would almost certainly be an ultimate line of honors boat, as well as fitting very neatly in the middle of the Mini Maxi class. With measurements for ORC, IRC, PHRF and CSA racing, as well as custom polar from Sailing Performance she is also race-ready for most of races including Offshores and Inshore.

Mark Lombard’s comments: In accordance with the specifications, this sailboat is inspired by the Vendée Globe Imoca boats, yet she remains a pleasure boat above any gauge obligation. Nevertheless, for me, the chine present on Imocas was essential since it is the most efficient to decrease the main beam while keeping a correct width at the waterline, an asset for stability. The gravity ballasts are only useful for very long reaches and beats. But it could be useful to fill them since they mean losing precious places in corrected time. I should finally specify to those nit-picking about the 250-kg teak deck that this boat is a compromise designed to ensure a maximum pleasure both while racing and cruising. The elegance of this teak, such as the retro deckhouse is based on this art of living and the elegance dear to the shipyard.

Builder’s comments: Flagship of the Fleet; this beautiful unit is part of the very exclusive spirit of "Codes" by Black Pepper®; inspired by the latest generation hulls - oceanic racers Imoca 60 - it is intended for offshore travel and racing. Its silhouette and its charm result from the alliance of old and modern lines, the original signature of Black Pepper® (doghouse, teak deck, etc.). On board nothing is left to chance: ergonomics, manoeuvrability, equipment and luxurious materials, living space, cabins, bathrooms, tender garage, cockpit lounge, everything is designed to ensure owners, comfort, safety and autonomy.
