I guess you can read German. There are German test on the net on the Winner 900, but it was not the performance version:


My information about the hull was: Winneryachts - Way Ahead - Building a Winner

Which I clearly misunderstood, as also confirmed by the Yacht test (my translation):
Hull and deck are built in sandwich with hand lay-up.

Less beam = less hull = less material = less weight.
Plus 300 kg for the interior now also makes some sense to me.

Thanks Paulo, my honest mistake!

Kind regards,
