1997 Goetz IMS 50

San Diego, California


49' Goetz IMS 50 '97 "Numbers"

NUMBERS is a very competitive and highly optimized for ORR and PHRF racer in good condition, ready for the next buoy or offshore regatta.

Originally designed by Jim Taylor as Design #95 - 49 ft LOA Grand Prix 'IMS' Racer and built by Goetz Boatworks in Bristol, RI she has gone through complete retrofit and modernization under the expert advice of Greg Stewart from Nelson Marek.

The Hull consists of unidirectional and biaxial Kevlar reinforced skins over PVC foam cores, whose density is varied to suit local loadings. The Deck is a similar laminate of Kevlar skins over PVC foam, with high compression core and additional laminate in way of all deck hardware. Pre-impregnated epoxy resins are used throughout. Both hull and deck are locally reinforced with unidirectional Kevlar to minimize the longitudinal deflections resulting from the headstay, running backstay and mast compression loadings. NUMBERS, is the third IMS racer of the same name that this office has designed to win the 1997 Admiral's Cup.

She comes with a wealth of racing performance data, extensive tuning charts and crew manual.

Completely replaced state-of-the-art electronics, electrical systems, running rigging and extensive sail inventory make NUMBERS a turn-key race machine.
