SILVA NEO was originally AIRIS, GP42 for the medcup circuit. She has since then been upgraded and optimized for IRC, the most recent refit in 2016 at Knierim Yachtbau incorporating a full weight study and removing all excess weight in the yacht.
Currently racing in the Fast 40+ fleet, she had excellent results especially in light airs against new designs based around the rule. A narrower waterline and lower rating giving her an advantage.
Excellent sails, and well looked after, she offers a very good opportunity to get in the mix in the Fast 40+ fleet, and be extremely competitive in IRC or IRC racing in Europe at a very modest price.
