Bribon is a 2005 Farr designed TransPac 52 built for the King of Spain by Cookson Marine. Purchased by her current owner in late 2021, Bribon has been extensively updated with special attention to speed, rating, handling, performance, and safety. Bribon was ORR optimized with guidance from Greg Stewart, and PHRF SoCal rated. She is Category 1 compliant and ready for her next inshore or offshore adventure!


Prior to 2021, Bribon had many successes including: in 2015 as Destroyer she finishedTranspac 2nd in Division 2, 7th overall, and 1st in the HPR Division. For the 2019 50th anniversary of Transpac BRIBON finished in 8 days with a 2nd in Division 1 (Subclass 1) and 3rd overall in Division 1 beating all the sleds and other TP52s. In 2019 she finished 1st in Class A in the Newport to Cabo Race and 2nd in Class in the 2018 and 2019 Newport to Ensenada Races. More Race Results are listed further down in the ad... With her full amateur crew, recent success includes podium finishes in San Diego to Puerto Vallarta (2nd ORR 2), Islands Race (3rd ORR B), SoCal 300 (2nd ORR A), Newport to Ensenada (3rd Maxi, 4th overall), Santa Barbara to King Harbor (1st PHRF A, 1st overall), Cabrillo Series (1st ORR A, 1st overall), San Diego to Ensenada (1st ORR A, 1st overall), and Yachting Cup (2nd Class AA).


In 2022, Bribon received a complete bottom overhaul, including a string keel kelp cutter system and sail drive deflector. Bribon also received a sprit extension (to 9m TPS) and custom two tackline snout for both 1:1 and 2:1 application. All hull and bottom paint were removed, bottom and blades faired, and repainted (received latest bottom paint Nov 2023). The mast and boom were also stripped of paint and repainted, and all new internal wiring and antennae, new standing rigging, new halyards and locks, new running backs, new 4:1 backstay system, new Harken head foil (and spare) and the like. The mast track was also replaced with an Antal track for both bolt rope and track luff systems to maximize performance in both inshore and offshore events. All structural kelp cutter systems were performed by Fitzgerald Racing in partnership with Farr Yacht Design and RigPro. All rigging was performed by SD Boatworks.


Also in 2022, Bribon’s internal power systems were upgraded with lithium batteries and new AT-170 alternator system, including smart gateway, regulator, Bluetooth interface and display, and new wiring throughout. All electrical systems were performed by Waypoint Racing. Engine includes rebuilt injectors and high-pressure pump in 2022, new low pressure fuel pump and priming pump in 2023, and new 21-gallon fuel tank and hoses in 2022. Additionally, sail drive was replaced in 2018.


Bribon was further upgraded in November 2023 with a new adjustable mast step and backstay deflector system which dramatically improved her upwind performance; further enhancing her ability to get even more podium finishes.


BRIBON IS LLC OWNED and comes complete with boat and mast covers along with a custom yard cradle for dry storage and a 24 foot, 3-axle, toy hauler that is set up with multiple storage cabinets, sail storage and work benches.  She has been professionally maintained and is ready to go with all the necessary offshore safety equipment.


She is in top shape and awaiting her next owner and adventure!

  • Construction

    BRIBOM is a 2005, FARR Yacht Design TP52 that was built in New Zealand by Cookson Boats of carbon fiber epoxy pre-preg with a Nomex core sandwich construction. Foam coring was used up forward in the "slamming areas" for added strength. 

    Vacuum-bagged throughout with carbon/foam infused interior structure. with monocoque type construction forward of the mast.  

    The interior arrangement has been simplified to its racing functionality. The resulting weight savings was used to congregate weight centrally in the boat to reduce pitching inertia and allow some exchange of volumes between appendages and hull. 


    BRIBON was built to ABS Offshore Racing Guidelines and is one of the few TP52s that is set up for offshore racing. This has been proven time and again with 3 Transpacs, Cabo, Ensenada and So Cal 300 races under her belt.
