Re: Interesting Sailboats

The Australians from McConaghy are responsible for some of the best sailboats around, racing and cruising and they have just announced a partnership to build a 60ft cat, and what a cat.

I believe this one is going to be a very successful boat and we are going to hear more about it in a near future. Take a look at the Mc2 60:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

New photorealistic image of the RM1260:



Take a look at a different boat, a wooden and a popular one. Ok it has epoxy on the marine plywood but it is still basically a wooden boat. Take a look at the hull and interior structure, including the steel one for the keel:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

On Yacht magazine they have tested the Dufour 36 performance. The boat really looks good on the water and it seems that notwithstanding its weight it sails well and fast. That extra weight is really a pity.

I wonder why? they say they use vacuum infused technology and cored hulls so the boat should not weight that much, specially with that "clean" interior.

The test will be at the magazine and it can be downloaded in PDF.


The movie of that test:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Some posts back I posted the Sly 38 but they have another new boat, the Sly 54 and don't ask me why they have changed the 53 that seemed still a very "new" boat. Take a look at the 53:

http://www.sly-yachts.com/uploads/c3...3-Brochure.pdf





The 54 seems to have the same hull, a different bowsprit and a nicer interior with bigger hull ports, more practical for extensive cruising. Hard to improve on an almost perfect boat















They don't say but I believe that the boat will continue to weight about the same as a medium displacement 40ft and will have almost half its weight on ballast, almost all at 2.7m on a torpedo bulb. Yes, a very very stiff boat with a huge stability and the power to carry a big sail area.

I really like this one. The boat is narrow and even if the interior space has nothing to do with a Benetau Vision 50, It has just the right dimension for 4 people to live comfortably and because, as someone has said, the difficulty of handling the boat with a short crew has more to do with weight than with length, it should not be very difficult to sail solo, conservatively.

I will consider this one when I won the lottery.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

M34, not a nice name for a sailboat, especially for a good one.

The M34 is made by Archambault, it is a one class racer and the boat that is used for the "Tour de France" and for the French offshore crew championship. Take a look:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The "Around NZ race" still goes on and the results are informative about boats performance and they are specially interesting because there are all kind of boats there, old and new, racers and cruisers and they seem to be all very well sailed.

On the last leg the surprise was the very good performance of old cruising boats, with heavy weather and upwind sailing. The First 44.7 seems as good downwind as upwind.

Particularly an old SS 39 sailed by an old couple made an astonishing good result, coming 2th overall with 8 08:41:32 while the First 44.7 had done it in 7 20:36:37. Also a very good result from a cruising Cavalier 45 that took 3th with 8 09:00:15. The racing downwind boats were beaten with a Pogo retiring and the Tiller 10.5 and a Ross 12 doing respectively 9 14:55:00 and 8 09:24:26.

On the third leg they are having mostly downwind sailing and on those conditions the little Tiller 10.5 can go almost as fast as the big First 44.7 and the SS39 and the Cavalier 45 are a long, long way behind.

I have already posted this, but take a new look at the boats and see what I mean regarding upwind, overall good performance boats and downwind boats.

Re: Interesting Sailboats
