S&S 52 Dorade
Her second significant refit for the return to serious offshore racing

LMI was fortunate to host Dorade’s second significant USA refit. Matt Brooks, her new custodian picked up from the Edgar Cato era's extensive hull and structural refit to take her to the next level in preparing Dorade for returning to serious offshore racing. “No stone left unturned” was the byword and instruction “make her as perfect as she can be”, the results came through.
