Re: Interesting Sailboats

One of the boats that had impressed me more at the Paris boat show was the A27. The boat looked just gorgeous and that inverted hull curve near the transom was just the cherry on the top.

We can find that inversion on some modern racers like the Soto or some Elliots and the idea is just to give more hull stability at a radical sailing angle.

If looking at the boat statically can give some doubts about its effectiveness, looking at the boat heeled on the water we can see that is going to work.

The German "Yacht" magazine posted some photos and that means they have tested the boat already. I bet they found it a great sailing boat...it looks like one and the interior is really cozy for a fast 27ft. The sail test should come out soon.

Even a bigger surprise than that inverted hull is that they are going to make the boat in 3 versions: Foil with a torpedo, TWIN KEEL, and swing keel, this one with a two rudders setup to ground the boat.

If they are making a two rudder setup to one version I bet the boat can be delivered with the two rudder setup in any version.

I found this one particularly beautiful. What a daysailer and week-end cruiser. A bit early to say what a racer, but I will bet on that.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Vilm goes modern, but not much: The German brand new models, the 115 and the 37 have not skeg rudders anymore and have a ballasted fin keel. Both boats share the same hull.

The boats look conservative but modern thanks to the Drawings of judel and vrolijk. Vilm are known to be well built and strong and I believe this two new models will open the Brand to a more vast number of sailors, provided they have the money for it because the Vilm are not cheap

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Is it just me or is the pilothouse version the better looking of the two?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The one without the pilothouse would look better - a lot less plain - with a dodger I think. It is the one I prefer.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Heres the video of the A27. One gripe I have is that they shouldnt call a 27 footer a budget entry with a price north of $100k.

Like Mitempo I like more the classical version. However I do agree that the 37 pilot house looks particularly well.

I would not attempt to design a pilot house with less than 40ft. I tried to design once one with 40ft but I found out that I needed 43ft to be completely satisfied with the boat looks. The fact that one looks not bad with 37ft gives credit to the designers. A dam good job

Re: Interesting Sailboats

G1000 and Chimbatete. Nice posts

Chimbatete, the best is always expensive I believe the A27 is going to be a winner and to have a winning machine you have to pay. That is true with racing boats, racing cars or racing motorcycles.

If you compare it with a boat with similar specs you are going to see this one is not more expensive and this one has really a nice cruising interior.

Regards
