The highly-competitive WallyCento Magic Carpet3 and state-of-the-art efficiency cruiser Ghost are finalising their plans to affix the 24th Superyacht Cup Palma fleet when racing begins in June.
Each will add their names to the rising roster which already consists of the Baltic Yachts tremendous sketch Hetairos and Swan 90S Freya.
Like Freya, the 30.47m Magic Carpet3 was drawn to what would be the 24th version of Superyacht Cup Palma by the prospect of ultra-competitive fleet racing provided by the brand new Efficiency Class.
“We have taken part in several Palma Vela regattas, so we are very familiar with the fantastic sailing conditions on offer out in Palma Bay, and we are excited and looking forward to what will be our first Superyacht Cup Palma appearance,” stated Magic Carpet3’s captain Danny Gallichan.
“In particular the new Performance Class was a big factor for us, with the fleet racing starts and the high-intensity racing that goes along with it,” he added. “It will be a great event for the owner and the whole crew to test themselves in what is sure to be a competitive setting.”
Launched in 2013 and properly campaigned ever since, the Reichel Pugh designed Magic Carpet3 involves the SYC with a profitable monitor report, not least a Efficiency Class victory on the 2019 Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, final June.
In the meantime, the Luca Brenta designed Ghost has been turning heads since her launch in 2005, and her fashionable, timeless fashion continues to take action. Her return to SYC for the primary time since 2007 will mark her new proprietor’s first regatta on the helm.

In the meantime, Pantaenius Yacht Insurance coverage, one other long-term Silver Companion supporter and sponsor of the Thursday Race Day, has once more renewed its relationship with Superyacht Cup Palma.
