The Aventura IV from Jimmy Cornel started to be an one off made by Garcia (that belong to Allures) under the specifications of Cornell, using the hull from the Allures 45.
The boat was designed to make a circumnavigation, one more by Cornell but this time going by the Northwest passage with lots of sailing on high latitudes but also lots of sailing on the tropics. So the boat was prepared not only to have a great ventilation but also a great insulation and also to be steered from the inside with a full all around view.
Well not anymore, I mean an one off, in only 3 months they have already 3 more commands and that is even before Cornell’s boat is ready (May). I bet this boat, that is also a true deck saloon, will be quickly a favourite among voyage sailors, specially the ones that will sail in high latitudes. The model was called “Exploration 45” and it will be a Garcia.
The hull is already made, in fact the hull and cabin and the boat is now in the phase of mounting all equipment.
Two movies, a short one that shows the hull and a bigger and interesting one about the boat, but unfortunately for some, in French.
