I bet it is also a boat with an overall good performance, a very well balanced boat. The beam looks big (because it is all aft) but in fact it is moderated, the same beam that a Xp38 has about the same om a Salona 38.

Do you know the price?

US$300.000 FOB Argentina without sails and ropes.

I'm waiting for more information from the shipyard.

Well, it was to be expected. This kind of boats light and with a big ballast ratio are expensive to built.

An Argentinian one that I find to be delivered in the USA at an incredible good price is this one:



It is also a Argentinian boat designed by G yacht design (Hey G, are you designing boats now)?.

The boat, a mini class racer with canting keel and all is purposed for USD 40000 delivered on the US East coast as a kit to be mounted.

Featuring the RG650

Even so it would not be difficult to adapt this boat for doing some cruising besides racing.

I find it a good looking boat and certainly it can go fast:



RG 650

G Yacht Design

Do you know more about this one? Any interest among Argentinians in what regards solo sailing and particularly mini racing?

They are having success with the boat?

Regards

Paulo

Jose, recién hable con el dueño del barco que es amigo personal. Me comenta que el mismo "fue" diseñado para correr en IRC asi que se supone sería su mejor situación. Yo le voy a consultar a Juan K pero además Lucas, que es el dueño del barco lo va a hacer medir la semana que viene porque quiere tenerlo medido para alguna regata futura.
Un abrazo.

The K37CR was designed to race under IRC formula and will be measured next week.

G yacht Design

I never heard about it before but after seeing that mini, that seems to be a great design, I had a better look at their work.

G yachts is basically Nicolas Goldenberg. He is almost a kid in what regards the age of most NA (29 year's old) but has already some very nice designs. It seems that the bigger ones were made by him but while working to a major Italian NA firm. He does not name it. I guess that he is still being commissioned by them

Nicolas was born in Argentina in 1983, linked to sailing from a young age he decided to pursuit his dream of becoming a naval architect. After his graduation from Southampton Institute (UK) he continued his development as a naval architect in a very prestigious Italian yacht design office.

I really like his boats that go from Minis to Class 40 to more classical cruiser racers. Very nice boats. This guy is good One more a on a long tradition of Argentinian Na.

Nathanaël G. Herreshoff: Fin keel boat and cats

One of my last posts if not the last of this season and I want it to be special and what can be more special that the most innovative architect ever : Nathanaël Herreshoff


I hope the guys from voile and voilers don’t mind that I post here some of their images, after all I am sending you guys to their pages and their very good articles, one about Herreshof, other about the first cat designs and boy, they are not only innovative but beautiful.

First Herreshof: Look at this baby, Dilemna, 11,58m, 1891, Fin keel and a bulb with a ruder well on the stern.




And even more incredible, his cat, a modern cat if we discount the rig: John Gilpin, 9.75m, 1877.







of course, they kick out this one from racing. Forbidden boat. Too fast and too modern

You can read a very good article here about Herreshoff , on voile and voiliers:
Nathanaël G. Herreshoff, le plus grand architecte naval de tous les temps - Annonce bateaux - Annonces bateaux - Occasion Bateaux - Occasion Voiliers - Occasion voiles


But the surprises don’t finish here. Just look at these not so well known designs:

Dominion, 10,83m 1898 designed by Herrick Duggan




Hades, trimaran, 16,75m, 1902, designed by Crowninshield




And a cat with a rigid sail designed by Lewis Herreshoff back in 1948.




You can read a great article here on Voile and Voiliers, the one from where this images were taken:
L

Also here a very interesting one about the Polynesian Proas and cats:
L

Well, use the Google translator and have a good read. Certainly these are interesting articles.
