TARKA is a magnificent sailboat designed by J.M. Finot, both very fast and very robust.
This boat will seduce the finest helmsmen, while offering very good comfort in a very clear and bright interior.
TARKA is a pure sailboat, with particularly elegant lines, and at the same time an expedition ship capable of all programs.
Built of aluminium by the French shipyard Leguen Hémidy, TARKA has proved the robustness of its construction during 12 trips to Antarctica, numerous passages of Cape Horn and navigations around Greenland and in the Svalbard Archipelago.

The design of the Levrier des Mers was inspired by offshore racing boats. It has ballast (twice 1500 litres of seawater) that increase comfort and speed.
