Crazy Horse was the first of the semi-custom Sllim 37 IRC Cruiser/Racers and is a development of Mark Mills’ highly successful IRC 39 Mariners Cove. The boat was originally targeted at the small boat class in the 2008 Commodores Cup. Extending the philosophy of true dual-purpose Cruiser/Racers, the design has been optimised to be raced as efficiently as possible, without compromising dual-use features like the secure and comfortable cockpit layout that was refined over many designs, or the smart seaman-like interior, which can sleep 10.

Although originally a custom project, due to the level of interest it evolved to become a semi-production build to allow the talented New Zealand builder Davie Norris to reduce costs for subsequent builds. The glass/epoxy construction was engineered by High Modulus NZ, and the project was managed by Chris Main to ensure a high quality package on her Key West race Week 2008 debut.
Crazy Horse is fitted with a 2 spreader mast and deep racing boom both in Carbon Fibre, standing rigging is rod. Both spars have been recently clear-coated and look brand-new. She has a two spinnaker pole set-ups; a short bowsprit, which is permanently mounted for use with light wind and reaching sails. The second setup is with the conventional spinnaker pole, for use with symmetric sails, which is quicker in the medium wind range. It’s also a must when sailing in current.
