    A Major Milestone For The AC 40'




    Auckland - 13th September 2022

    The first AC40 off the production line was unloaded from its ship and transported into the Emirates Team New Zealand base in a typically understated fashion last week.

    The Halcyon Days Have Gone Up In Flames



    A 29 metre classic yacht named Halcyon has caught fire in Marina Gouvia, in Corfu.

    According to local reports, the fire broke out around 4pm local time on board a 20 metre sailing yacht and then spread to several other yachts in the vicinity. Halycon was then towed out of the marina but the damage to the hull and weight of the water required to extinguish the flames caused her to sink.
