The Launch of Arpex

13 December 2014     Editor    2 Comments.

After a seven year build, Peter Mirow has launched ARPEX, his self designed and built 30’ tacking outrigger in Rio de Janiero. We’ve followed his progress over the years on his blog, and we’re nearly as happy as he is to see the great day finally arrive. Cheers, and congratulations!

Great day! What else can a man want, then to design, and build a boat, and see it floating on its lines? Hahahaha!

See more pics of the launch here.

I have received help and advice from many people who read the ProaFile. To all of you guys a big Thank you! It has been a fun project, and I am delighted to have shared it with many like minded sailors around the globe. Cheers, Peter

I am also a sailor, on my classic 32' sloop and I got some amateur pictures of Arpex on July 9th, when we sailed by. Pls inform how to send the pictures (e-mail or other).
