Green Marine congratulates TP52 Rán IV on its victory at the Gaastra 52 World Championship

Just weeks after seeing two of its boats take first and second place in the Vendée Globe, leading composite yacht builder Green Marine is celebrating once again, this time at the success of Niklas Zennström and his Rán Racing team in their TP52 Rán IV at the Gaastra 52 World Championships.

Held in Miami over five days, this was the second event of this year’s 52 Super Series.  Eight of the world’s top TP52 teams were to be found on the start line each day contending for the trophy. Such was the standard of competition that it wasn’t until the final race of the regatta that Zennström and his crew snatched victory to win overall by a single point.

Rán IV was launched by Green Marine in March 2011, having been built to a design by judel/vrolijk. Consistently the best owner-driven TP52, she won the Marseilles Trophy Audi Med Cup that summer and went on to take the Royal Cup 52 Super Series in 2012.  Since her launch Rán IV has developed and maintained a position as one of the top TP52s on the racing circuit.

2011 also saw Green Marine deliver a second TP52 – Container – to the same judel/vrolijk design and the yard has a further four TP52s to its credit from previous years.

Marcel Muller, Managing Director of Green Marine said, “We are one of the most experienced yards when it comes to building IRC raceboats such as TP52s or Mini Maxis. The continuing success of Rán IV demonstrates our ability to deliver highly competitive yachts to our racing clients that form the benchmark for technical precision, performance optimisation and reliability.”

Rán IV will be in action next at the Trofeo Conde de Godó, taking place at Barcelona over May 23 to 26.
