Apollo VI, originally built for and owned by Alan Bond AB, was built in 1984, and launched in November for the 1985 Admirals Cup Trials races held off Sandringham, I beleive she came 4th, so she didnt qualifying for the Aust Team. Then she sadly becaume a development yacht for AB which ment a few mods and deck layout changes. Purchased by myself in 2006, and has raced in the Townsville Cruising Yacht ClubsTCYC Commodores Cup series since 2008. Raced in MIRW 2008 to 2013 entered, winning PHS Division in 2009. In a much needed complete refit and upgrade at the moment for 2018 M2O, not a fast yacht by modern standards but honest and solid.
