Jesper Bank achieved quite a bit of fame in his life when he attained a gold medal in the Olympic Games for his sailing prowess. Now, the former world champion and skipper in the Americas Cup is once again in the news. He has opted to work together with the Danish shipyard Faurby Yacht A/S. They are working together on a unique new design that is intended to revamp and upgrade the original version of the Faurby 396 to one that will be more in tune with high performance racing. While there may have been a few stumbling blocks initially, the two have ironed all the design issues out and the plans are completed. The brilliant new Faurby 396 Jesper Bank Edition of the yacht is being released. Assuredly, it may prove to be one of the most impressive Yacht’s ever produced.
Most eagerly anticipated, however, is the inclusion of such a model in the forthcoming summer sailing races. Of course, Jesper Bank will be acting as skipper on these races which will definitely add quite a bit of publicity to the event. It could even prove to be the signature event that establishes this new ship as the top ship in the industry for the foreseeable future.
But, what is it about this new release that makes it so special? Without a doubt, the improved sailing performance could be considered the most important component. If you are going to race a yacht, you want the yacht to deliver performance wise. Lack of performance will certainly not be a complaint with this particular model.
Faurby has long since been established to deliver the best quality design in their models. They have also been known for this high level of craftsmanship as evidenced by the visual quality of their many yachts. Some may assume that it can be difficult to enhance the design and performance of prior models. With the right engineers and designers in place, it can prove to be not only possible but likely. This is evidenced by the “buzz” surrounding the release of this new joint venture model.
How well will this yacht be able to perform? The results of the summer races will certainly reveal the answer. Consider the prior excellent performance of the manufacturer of the yachts it is likely that the end result will be a desirable one.
Also helpful with the release of this new line will be the high level of comfort associated with it. Reports are that this is a boat that will be known for its comfort and quality which will be a major positive for those that may wish to spend a lot of time out on the water.
The look and performance of this particular yacht could potentially be one of the all-time best which is why it is such a highly anticipated release. Those that have followed the boat racing are keeping their eyes open for how this yacht will perform. More than likely, it will exceed expectations.
