Wings K15 is a Camper & Nicholson 12 Metre which was original built in 1937 and completely rebuilt by Guy Ribadeau Dumas, France in 2007 to her original specification.

This is an incredible opportunity to purchase one of the fastest classic 12 Metre’s on the planet, Wings has been optimized sympathetically to create an up-to-date race yacht that still holds a lot of her original character from 1937. Her race wins and recent race results speak for themselves, she is extremely fast.

In current ownership from 2017 she has been run by a very successful syndicate which has put a lot of time and effort into not only winning, but continuing to prove how special this 12 Metre is. She has had all new rigging, new mast designed and built, new/serviced winches and meticulously maintained by the Wings team and let’s not forget that she has been winter stored in a boatshed.

2023/24 is an exciting year for the European 12 Metre Class with racing taking place in the South of France.
