Crystal Cutter III is the former Tomoka/Bombolo which previous owners sailed up a storm with, but never did the Sydney Hobart, until Charles Parry-Okeden bought her and raced her to 97th overall in the 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart.  He enjoyed the race and successfully completed the Blue Water Pointscore that year, so returns in 2021.  Parry-Okeden previously owned a Beneteau Oceanis 38, Crystal Cutter II, which he sailed in various CYCA races.  This latest Beneteau 40.7 is a step up in boats and according to those in the know, Crystal Cutter III is the newest Beneteau 40.7 in the country, having been launched in 2008 and is taking part in the Blue Water Pointscore in the lead-up to the 2021 Rolex Sydney Hobart.
