USA 5211

Owner: Hasso Plattner
Design: Botin
Builder: Persico


Hasso Plattner entered the TP52 arena by buying the 2014 Phoenix originally owned by Eduardo de Souza Ramos and kept the boat in its original livery. After racing her a bit he set his sights higher and joined the 52 Super Series, a 2018 Botin design was ordered and built at Persico with the livery of the 2014 boat. Now the team is a regular on the 52 Super Series podium. Helming is primarily divided between Hasso and his daughter Christina and in their absence Tony Norris. The team is very international but has strong ties with South Africa where the team is very popular. Phoenix got a new keel fin in 2022.
