Plastimo & Karver Onboard Girafon

Heres a look at the stern of “GIRAFON” which will be competing in the 50th running of the Transpac Yacht Race kicking off July 10th 2019. This Figaro Beneteau 3 will be skippered by a great customer of ours, Charlie Deveneaux of Naos Yachting.

Keeping the crew’s safety at the forefront during this California to Hawaii race, this boat features a Plastimo Life Sling and a 4 Person Transocean ISO ISAF Raft. On the performance side, this 31-foot racing yacht is fitted with Karver’s popular KJ15 High Load Jammers.

The team here at Bainbridge wish Charlie favorable winds for the course as she attempts to win her class, and maybe the event overall!
