David Ferrall started building Pekljus in 2001 for Don McIntyre’s solo around the world race, but when that event was cancelled, he put the project on hold, instead launching her in 2004, in time for the Sydney Hobart that year, but the Radford 50 was one of 57 retirees from the 116 starters. David Suttie has the yacht now and was PHS second in the 2017 Pittwater to Southport race. This bullet-proof boat has been set up for easy handling and for fast passage to destinations and will hold up well in a blow.
