And since we revisited the JPK 10.10 let's have another look to the boat JPK designed expressly for cruising and solo sailing, the JPK 38. I am partial about this one because I like it very much.
They proposed initially a swing keel option and I don't know if they will make one if the client asks but it seems that they have fixed on two standard configurations: Bulbed keel with a 2.15m draft and twin bulbed keels with 1.75m draft.
The B/D ratio is very good for this type of boat and keel: 38%. That with the big hull form stability means a huge stiffness and a very powerful and stable boat.
The hull is beamy, with fine entries and based on the shape of ocean racers but proportionally less beamy than a Pogo. I like the interior too.
A fast and easy to sail boat that will provide a lot of sailing pleasure with good cruising accommodation and with a more than reasonable draft, considering the twin keel version at a fair price with the advantage of the possibility of customization specially in what regards rigging and sailor preferences. JPK is a great sailor and a very nice guy and will provide very useful information that makes easy to chose the best configuration to each one.
