The original Secret Mens Business, designed by Murray Burns Dovell, built by Peter Bolton yachts in 1996, known as Secret Mens Business 1. Over the course of its many successful race campaigns, SMB1 has competed extensively in eastern sea-board off-shore races, including Blue Water Series, and ten Sydney-Hobart races. SMB1 was purchased by David De Coster and Sally Armati in May 2018, berthed at CYCA, where it has been optimised to maintain its competitive edge. The 75th Rolex Sydney–Hobart yacht race will pave the way for many offshore campaigns entering into 2020 and beyond. David De Coster’s competitive nature and wealth of racing experience, including 15 Sydney-Hobart races will lead a strong experienced crew to the finish line.
