Our first new project for 2009 will be an 8.5M racing catamaran from GRAINGER, branded ICEBOX. If you are a serious sailor looking at competing under the new 8.5 metre rule in NZ or Australia or you are in SE Asia and just want to clean up the rest of the fleet, watch for this one!

"IceBox is a brand new design which pulls together a whole bunch of design technology we've used on race winning boats like Taeping, FlatChat, the Raider, and Cynophobe, and we've sized it all to fit the Open 8.5m Rule developed by the New Zealand Multihull Yacht Club to stimulate class racing without breaking the bank.
