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 copying the livery of the 2014 boat. Now the team is in its fifth Super Series year. Helming is divided between Hasso and his daughter Christina. The team is very international but has strong ties with South Africa where the team is very popular. For 2022 Phoenix sports a new keel fin.
