Re: Interesting Sailboats

Never posted about Waarschip boats and very little about Dutch boats. The fact is that the once strong pleasure boat building industry has been decaying for decades and many brands have disappeared or are close to disappear and nothing very interesting happens there, except in what regards very expensive boats.

Waarschip is one of those brands that are making boats for decades, slightly old fashioned, nothing new...till now.

Look at this baby...no it is not a Vor 70




it is the new Waarschip 700LD !!!

and this cozy wooden old boat?





Yes, surprise it is the same boat, they use for the bottom epoxy woodcore sandwich to take care of the large forces from the heavy bulb keel. From the waterline up all construction is traditional Waarschip craftsmanship with mahogany and ply.

Take a look:









They say about the boat:

In the tradition of Waarschip this will be a sporty but well behaved boat. A healthy 55% ballast placed low in a bulb provides plenty of stability. The Waarschip 700 LD is far more stable than the usual sportsboat. This makes the boat ideally suitable for family and shorthanded sailing, you don't need a big an experienced race crew to handle her. Just a fun day out, or sailing a club race with 1 or 2 crew is all perfectly possible without a hassle.

Rig

The rig is 7/8th configuration with an efficient fathead mainsail and no backstay. Both a conventional spinnaker as an asymmetric can be flown from an optional sprit/pole. The rudder is placed under the boat for maximum efficiency, control and feel. The keel is fitted in a trunk and can be removed for easy transport or winter storage.

Interior

Four large bunks with sitting headroom provide accommodation for shelter during a shower or for the occasional sleepover. A chemical toilet can be installed and space is reserved for optional inboard propulsion.


The boat is light with only 1150kg

Some other dimensions: LOA 7.00 BOA 2.50 SA up 32.4 m2 Draft 1.55m

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............................


And that is not the only interesting new from Waarschip, they are also making a very interesting 10m boat, the 10.10, a narrow boat with a big B/D ratio, a boat not like the others around, but a beautiful boat and one that should go upwind like an arrow:






For now they call these two the "racing line" but maybe the influence can get to the very conservative "cruising line" and more interesting things start to happen in Holland in what concerns the boat building industry that was once an important one.

Vor 70

and Groupama with its jury rig made it to the finish line in 3th. Chapeau!

The rig is really funny Groupama is now jus "pama" or at least is what fits in the short sail.



And it has a lot of stays:



Now they have time to mount a proper mast and be back on the race. They are second at 20 points from the Spanish (147 to 127).

Re: Interesting Sailboats

One of the best places to sail in the World (I was born there) too bad not many can afford to sail there. Subic to Boracay regatta.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Not many boats, but great images. The TP 52 is really a very well balanced boat: it can go fast upwind and downwind. That beautiful cruising boat that I have posted some posts back (Equilibrium 55) is based on the TP 52 hull.

Take a look at these images. Pity the bad quality but even so they are fantastic: A Tp52 at full blast:

Virgin Islands on a 31ft:

Cruising virgin Islands on a small boat, an Oceanis 31



Ok, it is a charted boat but I don't see any problem in going there in an Benetau Oceanis 31 with a good weather planning. Lot's of places to got shelter on the way.
