Southern Excellence II, a Don Jones designed Volvo 70 full carbon race boat, is now exclusively for sale with YOTI RACE. This extremely well maintained and managed carbon race boat has had recent modifications including total sand blast and re-fairing of the hull, as well as a lighter bulb fitted. With some impressive new Hoods sail this work has seen the boats performance significantly increase over the past 12 months.

The vessel uniquely holds both inshore and offshore Survey certificates, making it a rare and valuable proposition. Cat 1 and ready to race with extensive range of spares makes this a boat you should be talking to us about.

Please contact the team at YOTI Race for further details and to arrange an inspection.
