Rowdy Too (Ex-Beau Geste) is a Botin design from 2015, built at Cookson Boats, NZ in 2015.
An IRC and ORCi World Champion, with taller rig (+600mm) and new 2020 keel fin (3.65m) and bulb package from Botin, put this boat right at the front of the rating game! Increased structure below deck, reefing capability and high spec hardware throughout, make this an ideal contender on both the inshore and offshore circuits. Full North 3di quiver of sails and bang up to date cosmetics make this the boat to have for a serious campaigner.

This is a 2015 Botin designed, Super Series hull, taken off the SLED mold and built at the Cookson boat yard in conjunction with the Beau Geste team. Full carbon pre-preg construction, which was upgraded to foam core in the hull with a nomex deck and extra longitudinal's strengtheners added in the bow for offshore racing.
Designed structurally to sail offshore races such as Sydney to Hobart, Fastnet, Transpac. Special care has been taken to make the boat water tight.
In 2020 we built in conjunction with Botin Partners and Wilmar Composites a new fin and bulb and inshore rudder. This is Botin's 2019 design, which is 150mm longer in the fin and bulb weight 4575kg with a composite fairing, ie a shell on the fin. The boat also comes with a offshore rudder.
The boat has the option to drive with tiller or wheels. Wheels, tiller and extension included.
