We would like to introduce the Green Challenge Team, a sailing team whose skipper is Cristiano Verardo and they are now the owners of a new Sole Diesel marine engine MINI-29 installed by our dealer in Italy Selva.
A Class 40 is an oceanic class set between Mini Transat (6,50 mt) and IMOCA 60 (60 feet) but with a similar concept.
It is a very fast and powerful boat for offshore races built to cross the oceans with a small crew of one or two persons. The boat is 12,19 mt in length, 4,50 mt in width and a draft of 3 mt.
The palmares are:
We have chosen Sole Diesel Marine Engine MINI-29 because of it’s lightweight
The boat travels a lot around mediterranean sea to follow the offshore races schedule so it happens that most of the time we use the engine, we cover around 2000/2500 miles per year in delivery and the engine always worked very good!
