POP WORKED HARD TO SELL MY BOAT


The team worked hard to sell my unique sailboat, returned calls promptly, and was able to help with the vetting process that takes so much time and effort. I had offered it for sale through other brokerages but had no luck. Thanks to Scott Wild for making it happen. Tyone Raymond sail racer, "Age of Russia"

1992 USSR 73 Racer Sailboat in Bodega Bay, California

Stock #081100

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

***September 2016 update**--Boat just sailed offshore 200 miles north to Bodega Bay. Vessel performed amazing against adverse conditions!!

The Yacht Club of St. Petersburg, formerly Leningrad, is one of the oldest sailing clubs in the world. The first attempt of Russia to take part in the America's Cup failed due to competence disputes between Moscow and Petersburg and at the end due to a lack of money.The official, and by the San Diego YC recognized challenger, was the Red Star 92 Syndicate, which was sponsored by the St. Petersburg YC. First they built a test yacht in Aluminium for training around St. Petersburg.The second yacht in carbon-fiber has been finished so late, that it could be only transported by plane to arrive in time. But the YC had insufficient money. Suddenly Moscow representatives nominated to the surprise of all as another official challenger the "Age of Russia" Syndicate. Their yacht has been flown together with her crew in an Antonov-124 to San Diego in December 1991 (the same month the Soviet Union was dissolved) but took no part in the competition.At the beginning, they were not allowed to sail in the San Diego Bay because of military installations. Later they received a special approval from the Navy and the Coast Guard to sail outside the Bay.As the Red Star 92 Syndicate had no boat, but the official recognition as challenger, the Age of Russia Syndicate tried to establish a mixed crew, which failed and therefore the whole challenge

After its earlier history, a canadian racing team purchased the hull, keel, and rudder, though the original rig was destroyed by a tractor as it lay near the hull. They then trucked it all the way up to Vancouver island, BC, and fitted out with an aluminum racing spar, rigging, decks, keel, and and little else. It sat for a few years, never having been finished, and then purchased by the current owner in 2006, who spent a winter outfitting it enough to be able to sail it, though it was without an engine or any thing besides the most basic rigging,south and imported it into the USA. More time was spent putting it together, installing everything, including an engine, and then sailed down the west coast to LA, and then back the San Francisco, where the owner lived aboard and threw "Russian" themed parties, which mostly consisted of fabulous people dressing in furs, Soviet uniforms, etc... "It was a fun time. Just this last winter of 2014-15, I sailed around the Channel Islands for about four months with my wife and two year old daughter, which was a delight".

Down below is spartan with a spacious focsle berth and a small crew berth mid ships. It has a basic galley, range.head and plenty of room for further or complete fit out.

"I don't really like the idea of outright selling the boat as it was such an amazing boat, a guarantee of speed and style like few others."

The hull is carbon/composite with some fiberglass.
Extensive spares and fittings included in sale.

Information On Condition

Age of Russia was hauled last November and painted with Trinidad anti-fouling. Owner states she does have blisters but only in the faring that covers the carbon.There is also some damage to the faring compound where the keel meets the hull due to the natural flexing of this design.
