A new walkabout, even lighter. If the boat is strong enough this will be a very interesting boat, the 37 Med:
Lenght at Waterline 10,80 m
Maximum Beam 4,00 m
Draught 2,15 m
Keel weight 1600kg
Light Displacement 3700 kg
Sail surface 80 mq
Yanmar 22 Hp
Architect David Reard
Keel weight / Displacement 43.3 %
A very light boat with a huge B/D ratio and a lot of sail for such a light boat (3700kg for 80m2).
They say about the boat:
A new lightweight 37-feet designed for fast and safe navigation in the Mediterranean and for offshore race.
The hull is made in a sandwich composite (multi-axial glass fabric / PVC / multi-axial glass fabric epoxy laminates) and with round bottom and a single edge.
It is possible to install 2 ballast to improve upwind performance and have a retractable keel to reduce the draft.
This is a kind of Italian Pogo, even lighter (the 37 has the same weight of the Pogo 10.50, that is a 35ft boat) with better interiors. It is not too light? I don't know, the Pogo is not made with epoxy resin, this one is and that should make this one 500/800kg lighter, but even so It seems a miracle to me.
The same boat (37) on its "Voyage" version has 4896 kg. That seems a more realistic number. 1200kg between the two versions seems too much.
This is a test sail by SoloVela (Italian Sail magazine) of the WALKABOUT 43, the bigger sister. He have already talked about this one. It has a nice interior for this kind of boat.
