Highfield Caringbah


This Farr designed TP52 was launched in the USA as Rush. It then came to Australia where its best result was 2nd in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

Purchased in early 2017 by Michael Spies the boat underwent a full refit to bring it into line with the competitive TP52 fleet on the East Coast.
