Sail plan & Sail handling
We use a fractional sloop rig with standard Harken batten carsystem. The mast and boom are either from carbon or aluminium. All halyards are led through a tunnel under the deck from the mast to the central electric winch in the cockpit. This creates an uncluttered deck with only the genoa sheets on top of the saloon. Because of this, visits to the deck are rare, which increases safety on board. The main sheet is controlled with bridles on the aft part of the hulls.
360 degrees view
The genoa winches are also mounted on the side of the cockpit instead of on the roof, so you have no obstruction on the saloon roof. You enjoy a totally free 360 degrees view.
Speed & Safety
The advantages of speed are important, especially for the safety of the yacht and its sailors. Having the possibility of a higher cruise speed will take you into a harbour or safe mooring spot faster when bad weather arrives. A boat that is easily driven requires less force and thus less sail area. When the wind really picks up put away the main and sail on the jib only. Easy on the crew and the boat.
