2015 2 Comments from
Sailing Anarchy Forum: "Atlantic Privateer from
the 1989-90 race was bought by Danish drug dealers in St. Nazaire, france
in 2003. They then sailed it to Moroccan waters where they loaded it with 13
tonnes of Marijuana. From there on back to Denmark. I dont think Atlantic Privateer
is in Denmark any more".
"On the Atlantic Privateer, I have a thin lead towards Poland, there was some polish involvement in the drug bust and I believe she is owned by a polish person. Could possibly by in Poland. Another intel has that she was seized by Danish authorities after the drug bust, either destroyed or still kept in shed as evidence from the legal trail. I would love to get more info on this one, anyone with connection within the Danish DEA?"
From Facebook 2021: "There is a great FB page called IOR Landfills, and we grabbed this interesting and sad story…:
I was the project manager for Atlantic Privateer 1983-1986, negotiated and signed design contract with Bruce Farr (was the first Maxi he designed) and managed the build with Bobby and Eric Bongers in Cape Town. In 1983/4 I signed a sponsorship contract with Apple on behalf of owner, Padda Kuttel, after having met Steven Jobs and then John Scully in Cupertino and subsequently she was launched as Apple Mackintosh.
Having won the South Atlantic race, we still lost that sponsorship (long story) and after winning the Seahorse Maxi Series 1985 as well as handicap class win in the Fastnet race where we lost line honours by half a boat length.
I managed later to find another sponsorship with a company called Portatan, which was the name with which we started the WRTWR, . Portatan sponsorship was lost after 1st leg (another long story) and we continued to race as Atlantic Privateer. I still have laminate samples. pictures of build, launch, WRTWR 1985/86 with the boat and probably a pile of drawings too. Sad to see her condition now. Regards, Ludde Ingvall"
2021 October, comment and pictures from Facebook "Atlantic Privateer in Darlowo today. Unfortunately, the yacht's side was seriously damaged - probably bad technology of renovation and bad materials. There is a group of people who are fighting for this beautiful yacht to go on a cruise again. Best regards from Darlowo. Sorry for my English but I write with a translator."
