Black Legend 6 makes racing debut in Les Voiles de Saint Tropez

The French Nantes-based team of Black Pepper Yachts, known for building stylish day sailers through to IMOCA racers, and even superyacht tenders, is proud to be represented at Les Voiles de Saint Tropez by the recently launched Black Legend 6.

The Code 3 design is consistent with styling cues from previous builds, which incorporate hints of classics, performance features of offshore race yachts, and the levels of comfort that the owner of a 23-metre (75-foot) sailing yacht would expect for fast cruising in luxury.

Racing in the highly competitive I3B class, which also boasts a number of Wally’s, the newly launched Baltic Café Racer and Pink Gin Verde, Black Legend 6 stands out in two significant ways.

Firstly, she is crewed entirely by amateurs – all friends and family of the owner – in a class where seasoned professionals are bought in for regattas and the Saint Tropez dockside is full of world class competitive sailors in September each year. Secondly, not only is she the only yacht in her class built in France, she is also designed by French designer Manuard Yacht Design, who was the architect of IMOCA L’Occitane en Provence at the last Vendée Globe race.
