New RAN Ready For A Splash

A picture of the new Ran IV – a 2011 TP52 designed by Judel/Vrolijk and built at Green Marine in Lymington, UK.

She has just arrived in Palma de Mallorca, Spain – where she will undergo sea trials and get ready for the Palma Vela regatta as a warm-up before entering the Audi Medcup in May.

The team communicates to be very pleased with the professionalism, dedication  and craftsmanship at Green Marine, who also built Ran II.

Boat captain Chris Hoskings has made sure this race yacht is built and designed to such a high level we have not seen before.

As can be seen on these pictures there is a bit more graphics than the previous Ran boats.

The sea goddess Ran in the Norse mythology lives at the bottom of the sea. She uses a net to capture sailors and drag them down to her, where she also holds wild parties from time to time. The way to be safe and not be captured is for the sailors to hold a piece of gold, according to the mythology.

That’s why the team made sure to equip the new Ran with a golden bulb that should be well visible from the bottom of the sea!

Great boat, congratulations and enjoy racing her.
