O Tahiti Nui Freedom


50ft Tacking Outrigger     O Tahiti Nui Freedom

This 50ft tacking outrigger sailed from Tahiti to Shanghai in 2010. They have a website (usually works, but once did not). I am not particulary impressed by the website design to put it bluntly, but hey thats life

The design of 'O Tahiti Nui Freedom' was apparently based on old drawings by Admiral Paris in 1820. Weight of O Tahiti Nui Freedom is 8 tonnes unladen. More information can be found in the links below
