more details for this yacht

The Italian shipyard Maxi Dolphin, known for its production of one-off yachts, has followed its natural evolution and now launches the 20m sailing yacht DREAM 67 Shamlor. The new DREAM 67 Shamlor yacht is highly customised – a distinctive feature of the Maxi Dolphin production process – which, along with the highly advanced building techniques utilised, perfectly represents the yard’s philosophy in the building of entirely personalised hulls. The luxury yacht DREAM 67 Shamlor stands out for her superior performance, which necessitates extremely high quality construction standards, entrusted to Maxi Dolphin, which was chosen as the shipbuilder: further confirmation of the excellent levels reached by the Erbusco boatyard and recognised in the international sailing world. Constructed entirely with Sprint pre preg technology, the DREAM 67 Shamlor yacht is notable for her extreme sturdiness and unparalleled lightness, guaranteeing excellent performances in regattas.


The Rolex Middle Sea Race is a highly rated offshore classic, often mentioned in the same breath as the Rolex Fastnet, The Rolex Sydney - Hobart and Newport-Bermuda as a "must do" race. The Royal Malta Yacht Club and the Royal Ocean Racing Club co-founded the race in 1968 and 2012 will be the 33rd Edition. Save for a break between 1984 and 1995 the event has been run annually attracting 25 -30 yachts. In recent years, the number of entries has rissen sharply to 78 boats thanks to a new Organising Committee who managed to bring Rolex on board as title sponsor for the Middle Sea Race.


The race is a true challenge to skippers and crews who have to be at their very best to cope with the often changeable and demanding conditions. Equally, the race is blessed with unsurpassed scenery with its course, taking competitors close to a number of islands, which form marks of the course. Ted Turner described the MSR as "the most beautiful race course in the world".


Apart from Turner, famous competitors have included Eric Tabarly, Cino Ricci, Herbert von Karajan, Jim Dolan, Sir Chay Blyth and Sir Francis Chichester (fresh from his round the world adventure). High profile boats from the world's top designers take part, most in pursuit of line honours and the record - competing yachts include the extreme Open 60s, Riviera di Rimini and Shining; the maxis, Mistress Quickly, Zephyrus IV and Sagamore; and the pocket rockets such as the 41-foot J-125 Strait Dealer and the DK46, Fidessa Fastwave.
