Extensively refitted beautiful boat with great sailing performances combined with easy handling. The yacht was designed by S&S for offshore racing and cruising in IMS Regulation. She had a major stern modification in 1997, new keel 1997, and new carbon rig 1997.


SAGAMORE was the first yacht designed to the IMS Maxi Class Rules, and broke new ground with her the use of pre-impregnated carbon-reinforced composites. Using advanced FEA tools, the Sparkman & Stephens team produced a stiff yet incredibly light monocoque hull.

SAGAMORE, former RABBIT, was refitted in 1997 with a new offshore carbon fibre mast and a new keel was installed removing original deck stepped keel from S&S.
