Optio by Wauquiez

I am sure the boat will be a blast and the hull seems very well designed to me, a light boat too, a relatively narrow one with a big B/D ratio, a swing keel that goes from 1.0 to 2.2m draft and two rudders.

A daysailer with a true head and a lot of interesting solutions. On the cockpit the retractable cockpit table and folding seats are just great. The galley has a nice space but I would prefer a gas cooker instead of the micro wave that will dry out the batteries. Maybe they offer that as an option.

I did not like very much the last drawing of Berret & Racopeau for Wauquiez (the 57) but certainly I like this one a lot
