Velos is a One-Off 73′ Tanton racing sailboat designed by Yves-Marie de Tanton who with a 50 year designing and manufacturing resume has earned his place as a legendary yacht designer and builder..  Velos has spent the last couple of decades piling up the Trophies as she went head to head  with the world’s racing elite.  She has beaten many of the world’s best racing yachts and  has won the ST. Francis Yacht Club Big Boat Series in San Francisco earning her owner a beautiful and coveted Rolex Submariner.  Velos is still a competitive campaigner but would make an amazing cruising boat for someone who wants to sail the world and do it with grace, style and SPEED! Her owner would love to see her go on to more glory, whether it be chasing down more Trophies or  onto some incredible cruising adventures…
