Sail-World.com : Emirates Team New Zealand's TP 52 analyzed

Emirates Team New Zealand's TP 52 analyzed

'The distinctive stern shape is a feature of the Marcelino Botin designed Emirates Team NZ - TP52'    George Layton    Click Here to view large photo

Emirates Team New Zealand's TP52 just happened to be passing Peter Idoine's camera during a training jaunt in the Hauraki Gulf, and we present these shots to show some of the features of the TP52 class and this particular design by Marcelino Botín.

Emirates Team New Zealand was one of two TP52's launched this year in Auckland. Both were built by Cookson Boats, with rigs from Southern Spars and sails by North Sails NZ.
