Some more interesting information about the election, testing and the boats:

Every year up to 100 new sailing boats emerge on the European market, but only four yards are being honored with the “European yacht of the year” award.

“This year's tests in Ijmuiden/Holland and Barcelona were characterized by a lot of wind. During the boat tests, storms of up to 50 knots hit the North Sea, resulting in waves up to four meters high.

And over the Catalanian coast, winds blew with up to 6 Beaufort, creating a chaotic sea. There had never been such winds at the test dates before, a real endurance test for the boats, that all of them mastered well, some even exceptional.”, says Jochen Rieker, editor-in-chief of YACHT.

“In general, more emphasis was put on sailing performance. Not just the winners but every yacht we tested was fun to sail.

Furthermore, there is a very consequent development in several directions, such as comfort in the category of family-cruisers, or speed and fun in the category of performance-cruisers and special-yachts.

All in all it was a great year”, Rieker resumes.

Thanks a lot, Paulo.
It's good to know the Pogo has been appreciated by an international jury. But their judgement only confirms the thorough and accurate analysis that has already been made by all of you on this thread.

Best regards,

Eric

Well, at least on this thread we all knew the Pogo 12.50 is a great boat but it is truly impressive that its sailing charachteristics have impressed more all those experienced sailors than the ones from the Xp 44 that is also an incredible fast and interesting boat.

Chapeau, as the French say

Changing subject, forever beautiful: LULWORTH



and another beauty: FIREFLY



Really beautiful. I don't know why old racing boats are so elegant. A car from the 20's or an airplane can be beautiful but not as elegant as a boat, not by far.

Regards

Paulo

This year I did not went to Dusseldorf, I went instead to Italy looking for a used boat, what a drag. I miss the boats the ambiance and the beer, yes Dusseldorf has a brewery on the old town by the river and they still make their own beer, a dark bitter one that with time I come to love. The place looks stopped in time it is like if you enter on a movie from the 30's, I like it: warm and cozy.

Next year I hope not to miss it.

Well,I have looked at some movies about this year's show, not the same thing...





Movie:

On this one, that is not very interesting at the beginning, just in the end you will see some images of the Salona 35 that looks just beautiful.

This is a....BAVARIA

It seems Bavaria is going to make an inexpensive racer, a one class racer, the Bavaria B/one.

It will be fast (Farr designed) and inexpensive ( 22 900€ at the factory).

DATA (all preliminary):

Hull Length 7.00 m
Beam 2.49 m
Draft 1.60 m Liftkeel down
Main 21 m2
Jib 11 m2
Gennaker 46 m2
Weight approx. 1020 kg
370 kg Ballast

The boat will also have a cruising kit.

I would say this is an interesting one

The new Bavaria is going to be lots of fun to sail. Have a look at some kids having fun with a J 80 a boat not very different from the One design Bavaria:

New boat from Dehler, or at least a new version of the 35 that remains in production, the 35SQ (same hull).

Dehler normaly make a SQ version of their boats when they have already some years to increase sales. SQ means super quality and in this case it means bigger winches, double back-stay, retractable cleats and as an option a closed transom with a folding swim platform.


The bigger difference however is a two wheel set up on the cockpit.

The boat is produced, as the 35, in two versions that they call cruiser and race, with a small difference in draft but with a big difference in quality of construction, weight and price: Epoxy and a plastic core on the race one, normal resins on the cruising one and a balsa core.

Off course the one that they call race is as good or better to cruise as the cruising one, only more expensive. The interior is the same.










Even if I understand the utility I think that the closed transom makes the boat ugly. I would have preferred a bench on the transom, leaving it open behind. That would also be better in what regards water evacuation.

Regarding the other version the two wheel set up certainly have advantages in what regards cruising with a far better passage on the cockpit, however I have to say that I liked that big carbon wheel and it seems obvious to me that even with a good set up the wheel sensibility would always be better with a single wheel (less friction). The two wells setup provides a better storage on the cockpit aft the wheel. Not an easy choice, at least for me even if in what regards sales there is no doubt: almost everybody wants two wheels set-up
