Blue Beeste is Possibly consistently the most successful X332 built.
the Yacht was ordered by Scottish yachtsman Donald Sharpe to a very extensive and demanding specification and was delivered in 2001.

In 2003, 3rd X332 class X Gold Cup, 2nd X332 Class Cowes Week.
Since being owned by Charles Penfold and Martin Jenkins the Yacht has won hundreds of trophies including winning the East Coast Haven Series Twelve times, numerous Regatta wins and top three placings.
The yacht has been relatively lightly used and professionally maintained to a high standard. She is currently ready to race with an exceptional wardrobe of sails, some virtually new.
