Thompson T 980 Sports Racer
Talented Kiwi designer Steve Thompson enjoys a well-deserved reputation for designing fast, exciting, easy-to-sail yachts with high stability and excellent all-round performance. The 32ft Thompson T980 Sportscar is no exception; she is a dual-purpose sports racer with exciting performance and a real weekend away interior to keep the family happy. This is a yacht that can take on and often beat much bigger boats on the race course, yet it is exceptionally easy to sail.
The spacious cockpit has plenty of room for full on racing or casual day-sailing while she can sleep up to six in comfort. Carbon composite construction means she is light and stiff and her deep fin and bulb keel can be retracted, allowing easy transportation to distant regattas. Deck gear is well laid out and features Harken winches and Spinlock fittings. She features a stiff three spreader carbon mast with a generous sail-plan, and a retractable carbon rudder blade, all light and strong and all enhancing her excellent all-round performance. She has a retractable carbon assy sprit that can be canted 20 Deg either side allowing deeper running under asymmetric spinnakers. Her reliable 19hp Volvo Penta diesel engine ensures an easy ride to and from the marina to the race course. Navman electronics include a GPS with plotter and Rockbox mast mounted displays.
If you like to race and enjoy the exhilaration of fast sailing with planing performance in an attractive, offshore capable sports yacht, then you really should have a look at this Thompson T980. Price just reduced for immediate sale.
