Re: Interesting Sailboats

The XP-38 seems to be doing well in europe, and we are enjoying ours.

The Kiel Yacht Clkub Regatta, in both light and heavy conditions they came second in their division, despite poor crew work / errors.

Maior Regatta 2012

In the Lidingö Runt, as already mentioned the XP-38 did well in very light conditions so that is promising.


We've had a mixture of no wind to 35knts in the series we are doing currently, not being profession sailors so learning the new boat but each week we are getting faster so I'm sure at some stage we will get a win.

Certainly the handicapper favors our chances as we give time to some quicker boats (Ringle 39 for instance) even a new X50 only starts a few mins after us

Broadblue 550 and Maursaudon B525

The Broadblue Rapier 550 is interesting but it is a luxury cat. Sure it would be relatively fast but would not have the same kind of performance as the Dazcats (taken into consideration its size).
You can see that the Rapier 550 is relatively narrow for a performance cat and that interior has to be heavy. But nice concept no doubt, even in what concerns the interior….and anyway I am sure it will be very fast for the kind of luxury it offers.







If we want to find on that size a cat comparable in performance with the Dazcat, or even faster I would point out to the new Maursaudon B525.

I had not posted about it because those guys are able to make some of the fastest and more beautiful monohulls around (racing and cruising) but are unable to post on their site decent pictures.

I have seen other pictures (not on the internet) and I can tell you that the boat is beautiful. These pictures are just too bad and don’t make justice to this cat .

Vor 70

Huge storm on the way. In 2 days in a half it would be here:



I hope the storm will come this way and at this speed, that would give them just the time to get out of the way. An alteration of course or speed can have some worrying consequences. This is a force 11 storm

Re: Interesting Sailboats

What happens when this guy:



Comes talk with JPK saying that the Figaro (the boat he is sailing above) is a bit dated and wants to race in a faster boat?

Well JPK and Corentin had a talk with designers Guillaume Verdier and Axel Beaufort and the result is this baby:







The same size (35ft), canting keel, 3000kg, with water ballasts ( 2x 350L), beamy but not too beamy (3.80m) and a huge pole for an asymmetric spinnaker. The boat has a big draft (2.75m) and even if they don’t say I would bet on a substantial ballast ratio.

Of course, it is an all Carbon boat.

Jesus what a boat!!! I guess the old Figaro is really needing a worthy successor.

They are waiting to have five commands to start the production of this one series boat. They talk about 250 000€ for each boat. It does not seem much for a Carbon beast like this one, canting keel, water ballast, carbon and all

FANTASTIC!!!! After all those different moves, with the exception of Ian Walker and Abu Dhabi that is the big winner of the half race, all the others are quite close.

Puma is a bit better positioned and has some advantage over the others but nothing that could not be recovered in a day or two.

Ahead lay interesting options. It seem to me that a North route can pay off now but I am not sure that in a day or two it would not be better staying more to the South.

Anyway, the big and final gamble will happen after Açores where they will meet again weak winds and two options will be presented: Go North have more wind and came down along the Portuguese coast with the Portuguese trade winds to Lisbon or go directly to Lisbon and risk weaker winds. This one is going to be interesting till the end

Fox 10.20 Capado.

Adrien and Capucine continue their fast and save journey around the world in their nice little boat and has time to make some nice movies:



For the ones that missed the previous posts about the Fox 10.20, a look at the boat:

The first commercial boat with a bath tube bow :

it is a mini aluminum boat. I confess that this one I was not expecting

It is a micro cruiser with an incredible interior space, a full head a galley and 1.80 standing height...well just incredible.



It is a well known professional French aluminum shipyards and not some crazy amateur that is doing this project. The boat has a sharp keel (that can go up) with a ballast bomb and I bet that is going to sail quite well

But pretty isn't at least to my eyes.







Design David RAISON; David ROY; Quentin DELOUETTE.

Hull lenght: 6,8 m
LWL: 5,75 m
Beam: 2,88 m
Light displacement: 1,6 t
Main sail area: 19,5 m2
Jib area: 13,6 m2
Draft 0,5/1,5m
Standing height 1,80 m

I am quite curious to see who is going to buy this boat. I guess that in the US probably there would be a market for this boat. They love small cruisers. Or maybe not because they are also very conservative.

Guys, tell me what you think about this boat. I am very curious to hear your opinion. I confess this one put me scratching my head.

That really is ugly...

It do have an impressive amount of space inside due to the hullshape, so that´s a bonus. When it comes to sailing performance I´m not sure it will be a good allround boat. Wasn´t Raisons mini 6.50 rather lousy upwind? And that is compared to other 6.50´s that aren´t exactly top performers when it comes to upwind sailing, and probably not to comfortable upwind either. I´m not sure this concept is made for the large mass of sailors, but I guess many people say this about boats like Pogos as well. Seeing is believing, I guess we will have to wait for some youtube videos before judging this ugly duckling!

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I'm waiting for the first designer that launch a 38' - 40' cruiser/racer scow. I'm sure that more than one is now drawing it.

The disadvantage to the other mini has only to do upwind with waves. Since that aluminium boat would be mostly a coastal cruiser (unless some mad one decide to circumnavigate in one) that would not be a big problem and the advantage in space are really huge. Downwind it will be even more stable than the other mini, almost a cat

The idea of taking advantage of the extra space in a small boat looks good to me, what I found odd is the aluminum
