GOS16 GBR 42 ‘Ariel Nero’


For sale, a GOS16 2 person keelboat, one of only three in the UK. The GOS16 was originally designed, like the 2.4m, as a 1/5th scale Americas Cup boat, but using the IACC class last used in 32nd America’s Cup. Ariel Nero is a 2 person, 5m LOA keel boat, with seating for helm and crew in-line one behind the other.

The boat is ideal for disabled sailors who are just starting out in racing and are looking to move up to a single-seater 2.4m, once they have mastered competitive racing in the two-seater GOS16. The boat has the added performance benefit of an asymmetric spinnaker and code zero racing sails. The boat sails off PY 1286 and looks incredible when underway with its black carbon hull and Luna Rossa styling (see photos). Specification and inventory:
