- The Yachts
James Irvine’s latest Mayfair was one of the long list of well-known British yachtsman, Robin Aisher’s, yachts by the name of Yeoman. The Rogers 46, next known as Shakti, was purchased in 2020 by Queensland’s James Irvine from Doug Coulter. Irvine took it to 17th overall in the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart and third in Division 1 of the 2022 Gladstone Ports Corporation Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race. Irvine previously owned a Beneteau First 40, also named Mayfair, with which he contested the 75th Rolex Sydney Hobart in 2019 and finished 48th overall.
