Bristol Phoenix – September 26-27, 2001
Along the Waterfront

The latest from Goetz Custom Sailboats rolled out of the shop recently for the start of a cross country highway journey to California.

Pegasus 55, a 55-foot racer/cruiser was built for Californian Philippe Kahn and will enable him to cruise at a speed resembling that of flat-out racers.

The white-hulled boat boasts a strong but lightweight carbon fiber hull that, even with the concession of a wood interior, weighs half as much as a comparably sized Swan sailboat. As a result, it will be considerably more speedy, said Goetz spokesman Hale Walcoff.

The yacht’s designer is Alan Andrews and the project manager is David Lake of Bristol.
