Crystal Cutter III is the former Tomoka/Bombolo which the previous owners raced extensively, but never did the Rolex Sydney Hobart, so this will be her first – and with her new owner, Charles Parry-Okeden. Parry-Okeden previously owned a Beneteau Oceanis 38, Crystal Cutter II, which competed in various CYCA races during the past 4 years. He has now stepped it up a notch with the purchase of Crystal Cutter III, which he specifically acquired in June this year to compete in the 2019 Audi Centre Sydney Blue Water Pointscore Series culminating with the 75th Sydney Hobart Race. According to those in the know, Crystal Cutter III is the newest Beneteau 40.7 in the country, having been launched in 2008.
