This beauty, Raimbow the 1934 cup winner, is on the water again.





Well. not properly the original one but a replica that is faithful in what regards the hull shape but not in what regards hull construction: The techniques and materials could not be more different.



Yes that's right, it is an aluminium boat redesigned by Dykstra. Actually the new one is heavier: 178T compared with the 141T of original one, a William Burgess design with a hull of wood supported by steel frames. But the new one has a bigger mast and carries more sail (930m2 comparing with 700m2) and that means that some of that extra weight is ballast


Who would say that this beauty is an aluminium boat?

The new Hanse 415, a boat that pisses me. I explain:

There are many things I like in the boat: It is not as fat as many of its concurrent (it could have a more sharp bow entry), it has all the winches in the cockpit, and that makes the handling easier solo or with a short crew, it has a modern and efficient keel and a nice hull, it has an epoxy version that is strong and not to heavy, self tacking jib. The cockpit and the storage is well designed including the space for the life-raft... but it has a quite deceiving interior, one that looks an amateur design job.

Hanse insist to design its interiors at home instead of giving them to the better specialized designers on the market and the results are very, very poor. I would say that even not professionally specialized in that type of design I could easily improve the design quality of that interior and that without making it significantly more expensive. Not that I am good at that particular type of design, it's the ones that design that interior that are not up to the task. Of course a good specialized designer could do a lot better than me.

That is what pisses me with Bavarias (even if the new Vision seems a lot better) and Hanses: They judge necessary to contract a first class architect to design the hull and rig but find unnecessary to the the same in what regards the interior. That's not very clever because most of customers (or their wives) buy the boat more by the interior than for any other thing.

Guys, I have found some really good information about energy in a sail boat, batteries, alternators, different types of generators, electrical consumption...well the lot. I have already posted it in a small thread but I think that here is going to benefit more people. It is a book and you can download it.

Electricity on Board

by Reinout Vader

and it can be downloaded in the site of Victron Energy B.V., specialists in generators and energy.

Thanks to both to make this gem available on line.

The book:

A new design, a French one with 15m and when I look at it I think: Ferrari, maybe I should thought Bugatti, but no, definitively Ferrari, maybe because the NA is Italian.

The Aureus XVI looks gorgeous and it will be fast with only 11.8T to 122 m2 of sail, a carbon yacht. Have a look at this beauty:

Look at this Seacart 26 promotion movie:


SeaCart 26. Promo. from Love Strandell on Vimeo.



Not much wind and the boat glide very fast, effortlessly. Nice. What a day-sailer, what a racer, what a wonderful boat

Yes I agree. I understand the designer's idea and the zen spirit with some luxury is a great mix, but mainly on the dark set-up I thing you are right.

On the light colors set up it seems a lot better to me. You can see that on the cabin. Pity that the saloon is shown only with the dark set up. I don't like the movable cabinets idea on a boat with this size.

Paulo
