Outlaw for Sale

Are you thinking of entering the Ocean Globe Race in 2027

We have the perfect yacht for you, already OGR compliant and an extremely competitive entrant in both the 1985 Whitbread RTWYR and the current OGR 2023 race.

OUTLAW is an impressive Baltic 55, originally built in 1984 to compete in the 85/86 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race.  Named EQUITY & LAW for the race, she was built by Baltic in Finland to a Douglas Peterson design.

In 2021, Team Spirit of Adelaide formed an owner’s cooperative to purchase OUTLAW after finding her in a boat builders’ yard in Albany, USA.  She’d been out of the water for many years and was in a remarkable condition considering her age, ultrasound testing confirmed that.  The team spent 12 months on the self-funded project, restoring where possible, and fitting her out to Word Sailing Offshore standards.
