Pendragon-VI is a Laurie Davidson design, launched in December 2010.
Designed to excel at both offshore and inshore racing, she features a hydraulic lifting keel, retracting prop shaft for drag free speeds while sailing, twin rudders, and large masthead gennakers. Built at Franklin Boat Works in New Zealand, the boat is built entirely of carbon fibre.
All halyards and control lines run under the cabin and deck which allows a very clean and uncluttered deck layout. Three Harken grinding pedestals can control any of the four different winches as well as hydraulic deck functions. The interior is open, and comfortable for entertaining when in port, but also safe when offshore racing. Off the wind, in the right conditions she can sail at 30+ knots.
In 2018 she set a new race record for the 151 Miglia-Trofeo Cetilar of 15 hours 30 minutes and 45 seconds, breaking the 16 hours 25 minutes and 23 seconds record set in the 2011 race.
