Ocean racing yacht ARCTOS
SV ARCTOS is the flagship of the Flying Fish fleet in Sydney. She is a powerful cutter-rigged Radford/McIntyre 55.
This impressive yacht was built for long distance ocean yacht racing and completed a Southern Ocean circumnavigation via Cape Horn with a crew of 10.
ARCTOS is strong and fast and fully set up with Category 1 safety and communications equipment.
Rolex Sydney to Hobart Race winner
Every year a crew of amateurs form around the world join Flying Fish in Sydney to compete in the iconic Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Flying Fish ARCTOS has a string of podium results, including 2nd in class in 2009 and 1st in class in 2010.
The yacht is ideal for a campaign of this nature.
You can book a crew place on the Sydney to Hobart campaign or contact Flying Fish if you would like to charter ARCTOS for your group to compete in this or another event.
Available for skippered charter
ARCTOS is available for skippered charter from our base in Sydney. The boat can take a maximum of 14 people for day sailing or 12 (including skipper and mate) to sleep on board.
A day sailing Arctos off Sydney heads is a great corporate teambuilding experience.
