BRAG is for sale after 14 years of careful costal cruising by same owner couple from new culminating in a superbly successful transatlantic crossing from Scotland to the Caribbean via the European Atlantic coast in 2017. Mission accomplished, the owners are ready to pass on Brag to her next intrepid sailing crew. One of the legendary and rare 420 models, Brag was born in the renowned Bob Johnson yard widely acknowledged as a world leader in safe, comfortable and reliable ocean cruising. Brag was completely overhauled and equipped for her 2017 ocean crossing to meet stringent ARC specifications and is happy to describe herself as “better than new”, including sails, standing rigging, generator, Iridium GO, Raymarine navigation equipment, water maker etc. It’s no wonder her transatlantic crew fell in love with her. Brag is currently cruising in the Caribbean with the intention of shipping her back to the UK in May 2018.
