The "Tsunami," a recently built 28ft Anguillan Racing Boat, is a natural phenomenon that is stirring excitement among boat racing enthusiasts. Although similar, the Tsunami is very different, and represents innovation and classic beauty. Robert H. Perry of Robert H. Perry Yacht Designers, Inc. (www.perryboat.com), in Seattle, Washington, designed the Tsunami to be fully competitive with impressive race winning performance and high tacking angles. Robert H. Perry has designed countless high performance racing yachts, such as the 'Stealth Chicken,' 'Flying Tiger' and the "ICON." The Tsunami was built by one of Anguilla's finest boat builders, Mr. David Hodge, with the assistance of Mr. Bryan Carty, in accordance with its Mylar patterns and with extreme attention to detail.
The Tsunami was design as a strikingly beautiful high performance racing sailboat, along the lines of classic racing boats infused with European styling, that looks fast even at its mooring. Tsunami's hull design is powerful, extremely easily driven, with excellent acceleration, and the ability to hold its speed well through the lulls. As one observer voiced, "if she sail as good as she looks she will be unstoppable."
