Palpatine is a Stimson IRC42, and one of only 2 Stimson 42’s in the world. The designer Christian Stimson (of Reflex 38′ fame) was briefed to design a performance cruiser racer suitable for charter guests. In fact he went more down the racer route and certainly built in the performance factor. This is not a yacht for the faint hearted! Check out her programme below.
With twin wheels, large open cockpit, large bulb keel and a steady replacement programme for her wardrobe of sails “Palpatine” certainly flies. She carries both asymmetric and symmetric spinnakers and when the asymmetric prod is fitted she becomes 45’ LOA. She races in the UK in the summer, then crosses the Atlantic for the Caribbean race season, before again racing Trans Atlantic back to the UK.

All running rigging is high grade Dynema (2014/15). Standing rigging was all replaced in 2014.
