Judel/Vrolijk TP52. Project manager – Jan Klingmüller
Constructed – Persico, Nembro, Italy 2015
Ran Racing team is dynamic. They never stop in what appears a steady evolution of team and race boat. Never scared to explore & develop new concepts, they are one of the most progressive teams of recent racing history.
Tim Powell once again asked us to develop a highly specialised layout that can perform in all conditions, but really deliver that extra edge in breezy conditions. Some clever switching mechanisms and the special features of the M4-T-IC gearbox enabled us to achieve the goal for an acceptable additional weight increase. STAYINPHASE supplied extensive composite components to the project and this paid well for our progress at the boatyard.
RAN-6 also features heavily modified winches. The standard Harken 650 winches were dismantled and the winch bases were discarded. New supports were created in the deck and all gearing arrangements reinforced, greatly enhancing the units performance.
The development never stops and 2016 will see RAN Racing out there again with further refinements.
