Rhumbull is a 2001 White Fomula Bull 7000. The Bull 7000 was designed in 1993 and featured many new concepts and ideas. Prior to this in 1988 Greg Young had designed the first modern pivoting bowsprit on his 6.5m trailer yacht. After developing the idea and concept, the Bull 7000 was launched and was met with instant success. There are boats scattered throughout the world and the yachts concept is timeless. There are simply no other sports yachts available today that offer the performance, comfort and practical features that this yacht offers.
If you would like to view this fantastic yacht, please contact Roy Heeley on 07880947376. If you are coming over from the mainland, we suggest that you come over from Lymington and we will meet you at the Wightlink Yarmouth terminal.

The Bull is recommended as a touring yacht. Yet it is not a boat for the typical touring sailor.... meaning those who use there boat from A to B and consider 7 knots very fast sailing. The Bull is the boat for sportsmen who like to spend a comfortable vacation, but do not like to cross the Ijsselmeer on a halfway rolled back genoa. Sailors who, even when on vacation, like to sail fast and spectacularly. The Bull is their boat: a fast boat which can be safely handled by a crew of two, with proper accommodation. (Waterkampioen, Netherlands)
The Bull is a very style-led entrant in the sport-boat market which has picked up many additional orders by virtue of its highly modernist and innovative interior arrangement. (Seahorse, UK)
Young maintains that with so much cruising detail the Bull 7000 should not be expected to match the performance of more dedicated race designs. However that comment could well be understating the performance of this boat. Whether intended or not, the Bull 7000 is very quick indeed. After two test sails, and after observing the boat take part in the Musto winter series race, it is clear that this boat will be very competitive for those with racing intentions. (Boating World, New Zealand)
I am really impressed with the yacht - I really like the engine storage and the bow sprit innnovations. The reviews about are brilliant. There has been a great deal of fun had on this boat, but there is a great deal more to me had! They are few and far between so don't miss out on her.
