Broker’s Comments

VENOMOUS is an extraordinary yacht. She offers fast, comfortable and safe sailing. Originally built as an offshore orientated race yacht with an interior, as time has progressed, granted she may not be as competitive on handicap as the latest flying machines, but she does offer fast and comfortable racing, ocean cruising/racing and is an excellent charter platform. A very comfortable and dry interior makes living on board pleasant without the fuss of a modern cruising yacht.

Owner’s Comments

Venomous has been a fantastic boat for us. We have had years of fun with family and friends and race crews. As well as achieving funding through chartering. With only the owner as skipper. Stories made and stories shared whilst on the weather rail on an offshore race or cruising around the Solent and Caribbean and with our race crews competing in races such as the Fastnet. With many victories under her belt, she has never failed to impress all who have sailed on her. Every day has been champagne sailing with her high freeboard keeping the both crew and accommodation dry. When sailing all you have to do is pull the sheets on and cruise past everything in style.- Nothing beats it. However, we reluctantly have to sell her.

Venomous USA 60006:
Venomous is comfortable yet practical with an open living/sleeping area that is ideal for both racing and cruising. Venomous, a Farr CM 60 built by Carroll Marine of Bristol, Rhode Island. She is an exciting and easily handled yacht with many recent IRC optimisation and is a competitive racer. This yacht is very fast for its size with excellent handling ability with substantial downwind sail area. Carbon fibre composite construction, with a vast interior and a large workable cockpit. Venomous is sturdy and perfect for offshore distance racing.

The CM 60 concept was established to meet the client’s demands for both a competitive performance race yacht and offer fast comfortable cruising.

The Future:
A one-time opportunity that opens the door to a boat that allows you to do such races as the Fastnet quickly, competitively and with a good degree of comfort. An ideal boat for racing around the Caribbean circuit and Transatlantic crossings or simply a superb yacht fast cruising. With the continued opportunity to benefit from charter work.

Venomous has many victories under her belt, such as RORC Season champion, Round Ireland and numerous RORC offshore races she has never failed to impress all who have sailed on her.

A brilliant boat with a bright future ahead
