Marten - 49
Defiance is the 15th and final Marten 49. She was launched in October 2009 for her sea trials in Sydney before being shipped to the USA and was then sailed from Savannah to the British Virgin Islands, where she remained for two and a half years. She was used for light cruising and day sailing around the Virgin Islands during the winters and was laid up ashore in the summers on her own cradle. In May 2012 she was sailed North to Rhode Island to do the early summer racing season and then returned to the British Virgin Islands for the winter 2012/13.
Without question the most up to date and immaculately presented Marten 49 available today.

The Marten 49 is a good example of a modern cruiser racer. It was conceived for the owner who wishes to combine the excitement of a performance racing yacht with the ability to make fast comfortable passages whilst cruising. It is differentiated from other yachts in its class by its detailed design, state of the art construction methods and lightweight materials that provide superb performance.

This Marten 49 includes the standard lifting keel for maximum windward performance when racing and reduced draft for accessibility to harbours and anchorages when cruising. The keel lifting is achieved in about 1.5 minutes by a 12 volt hydraulic unit.

The naval architecture is by Reichel/Pugh, the structural design is by SP Technologies and the build is by Azzzura Yachts in Nowra, Australia.

Defiance is the 15th and final Marten 49; she was launched in October 2009 for her sea trials in Sydney before being shipped to the USA and was then sailed from Savannah to the British Virgin Islands, where she remained for two and a half years. She was used for light cruising and day sailing around the Virgin Islands during the winters and was laid up ashore in the summers on her own cradle. In May 2012 she was sailed North to Rhode Island to do the early summer racing season and then returned to the British Virgin Islands for the winter 2012/13. Presently Defiance is out of the water in Nanny Cay Marina, Tortola.

Defiance has only been lightly cruised and has raced four Caribbean regattas and the Onion patch series including the Newport Bermuda race. She is very capable of winning under both IRC and CSA rating rules.
