04/30/13: NEB built Tripp 43 returns home

NEB built Tripp 43 RAVEN in Chicago
In 1997 NEB was gaining a reputation for quality construction in the Grand Prix race boat market. At the same time, American designer, Bill Tripp was making his mark under the IMS handicap rating rule in a fast developing group of competitive yachts from 40-60 ft. NEB and Tripp joined forces to produce a custom fractional rig 43 footer for a New England based client. Now after 16 years of racing on the US East coast and some years of fresh water sailing on the Great Lakes, RAVEN has returned to her birthplace in Portsmouth, RI. The Kevlar composite hull has stood the test of time so with a fresh coat of paint the yacht will be racing again in the summer of 2013 on New England waters.

Plans for this first season do not yet include any modification or upgrades by NEB. Other than a new topsides paint job, the only change will be the boats new name, SETTLER. The previous SETTLER, a Peterson 42, underwent several successful modifications over the years by NEB. This latest SETTLER will likely undergo race modís or upgrades in the future but for now plans are to sail the boat as is in order to get a feel for where she stands with her competition and how NEB enhancements might improve performance going forward.

Follow NEB News updates to hear more about NEB upgrades or modifications to help SETTLER and other race boats looking for an edge in performance!
