The Boat

“Charm Offensive” is the name of the 44 foot Hanse 445 yacht, owned and captained by Nick Black.

The journey begins in Griefswald, Germany at the Hanse Factory where Charm Offensive will be born. She will turn from epoxy and fibreglass into a beautiful sail boat ready to sail through the strongest winds and roughest oceans of this world.

The plan is to sail from Griefslwald Germany over the Atlantic and South Pacifc back to Sydney Australia in 1 year.

Charm Offensive’s¬†first real test will be sailing across the Atlantic while competing for first place in the World ARC from Las Palmas to St Lucia.
