100% Zero Emission TP52 Racing Yacht
The first ever electric powered yacht to enter the Sydney Hobart Race. The boat features solar, wind and hydro-electric power and has proven to be competitive in some of Australia’s biggest sailing events.
The Yacht is a great platform for showcasing Blue Economy and Green Energy solutions.
JBird III was the 2nd boat launched in the TP52 Class. Thrown away, it was restored from a wreck to to a state of the art racer
An Unfinished Story
The plan is to race the yacht where it all began. The Transpac Race is what this boat was designed for. 2025 is the year.
The Story So Far…
The first TP 52 to hit the water and winner of the 2001 Trans-Pacific Yacht Race, the boat was found rotting on a mooring in Pittwater. Others wanted to scrap her, but we decided to rebuild her.
The deck was replaced with a new core made from Recycled PET bottles and Bio-Resins. The old diesel engine was removed and replaced with a new Bellmarine electric drive and lithium batteries.Want to geek out on the restoration? Read it here… HELLO@NEVEFIT.COM 21 JUMP STREET, SAN FRANCISCO
