PCP will become famous soon enough
New A35

The hull is the same but the changes are so many that this is truly a MkII, a new version.

One that is not visible is the deck and cockpit, alright we can see that the cabin is different but we cannot see that they are made using an infusion system (it was by injection) and that allowed to save a lot of weight that went almost all to ballast that is more substantial then before giving it a bigger RM (the boat as a very big B/D ratio).

The draft is bigger with 2.20m and rudder and keel were revised. The rudder is really deep and the keel has been perfected for IRC rating. Probably they will offer another version for the Transaquadra with a torpedo keel and two rudders.

The boat can have two wheels or a tiller and in that case the traveler changes position going aft.

The rigging was completely revised. They show on the movie the old boat and if you stop the movie you can see the considerable differences. It will remain a boat that can be sailed with a crew or solo.

And for last but not least, in what regards cruising the boat offers a decent storage on the cockpit, more storage inside and a much better interior, a very good one for such a high performance boat.

The price is a nice one, taking into consideration the performances: 155 000 euros (including 20% VAT), price for the Paris boat show.
