2010 Info Dailysail, Based in Newport Beach, CA

2016 On Spartan Ocean Racing website: "Charger is the famous 1993 class winning Whitbread 60 'Yamaha' the boat that proved once and for all that 60ft was the definitive length for an open ocean racing boat. (Read more )
She's still as tough as nails, literally bullet-proof (she is built of Kevlar:) Yamaha/Charger has been reawakened and rebranded by Spartan Ocean Racing after a long, long sleep in the sun in Long Beach, California. She's still the same boat but like 'Challenger' she is now modified to allow greater access for our race teams to all that lovely speed without needing a full pro Volvo team to make it happen Ah! furling headsails and spinnakers- how we love thee.
Charger will go into service in February 2016 serving the West Coast of North America and Mexico, providing sailors of all skill levels the opportunity to sail, not only on a fantastic 60ft race boat but on the mother all Volvo race boats. Charger will compete in some of the West Coast's most famous race events such as the Pacific Cup, Transpac, Ensenada Race, Vic - Maui, Valarta Race & Mexorc to name but a few.
Come join us and take the wheel of a legend.
