New boat: This one was created for a young couple to circumnavigate. The guy, a young but very experienced sailor wanted something fast and safe and asked a friend NA to adapt one of its designs, the FOX 950, a solo Ocean racer for cruising and a new boat was born, the FOX 10.20.
FoX Technology - Architecture Navale et Ingénierie
The boat, like the RM is made of marine plywood/epoxy and has a well designed lifting keel that does not take much space and has a surprisingly good interior taking into account that they were doing a budget boat. It seems a very interesting boat to me
The boat only weights 3800kg, has a big bulb at 2.4m (lifting to 1.3m) and should be a blast with its big spinnaker up (110m2). Upwind the boat should be fast, with 66m2 of sail and for bad weather it comes already with a small stay sail (17m2).
The only thing I don't like is the name, CAPADO: in Portuguese means a guy or an animal that has its balls removed
It should be interesting when they sail in Portugal and Brasil, their radio communications are going to be interesting with such a name call
