Zeeman 41

For the ones that prefer heavy boats with a stronger modified fin keel and like classic looks I do not know anything better than the Zeeman 41. From the same designer of Puffin 27, the boat has gorgeous looks, fantastic interior, aluminium hull and lots of sail will make this boat a wonderful boat to own and a particularly good bluewater boat.

Take a look:

Yes, that's a very interesting sailboat. It will be probably at the Dusseldorf boat show and that is one of the boats I want to visit

C-Fly

Take a look:



No, it is not some amateur doing experiments. This is serious stuff:

Creating C-FLY has required a diverse, highly skilled and dedicated team. The experience and knowledge needed is closely aligned to aerospace engineering and equally challenging.

The design team examined existing and potential concepts for high-speed sailing. Combining this analysis with a healthy respect for real ocean conditions, they evolved a synthesis of the best of current state-of-the-art multi-hull design with the benefits of a unique hydrofoil system.

One of the most challenging aspects of the design was to research and develop wave piercing hydrofoil technology that would meet the requirements of the canard layout. This part of the programme involved extensive tow tank research into novel designs for ventilated hydrofoils.

Computer based modelling tools were used to carry out a comprehensive investigation of fluid dynamics and structural performance, including developing bespoke VPP programs and six degree of freedom models to analyse the boat’s behaviour.

Until now C-FLY and its unique hydrofoil technology have remained confidential, with the project privately funded by the team.

With the success of C-FLY Coastal and the concept proven, the team are exploring new avenues for the technology, including a range of concepts from dinghies through to offshore ocean sailing yachts and powerboats.

The team believe the time is right to scale up to C-FLY Ocean, the full-size ocean going version to rival the giant offshore multihulls and to challenge l’Hydroptère, the world’s only offshore sailing hydrofoil.

The C-FLY team is now looking for a sponsor with a passion for sailing or record breaking, an interest in innovative technology and design, or someone who simply wants to be part of making C-FLY headline news worldwide.

Well, that is something that deserves to be followed. The video is not very impressive but the concept seems interesting, who knows if they cannot develop it for commercial use.

Vendee Globe

It is almost there, I cannot wait

I bet on this kid to be one of the main contenders, even to win the race. He is a kid among big men, but this kid is a great sailor.



Another contender, this one from Spain in an ecologic boat that uses only renewable energy.

Vendee Globe

Continuing with the presentation of the racers, remembering that the race starts in some weeks and that amazingly (giving the economic bad moment) they have full house, with the max number of racers allowed: 20

This is the Swiss BERNARD STAMM with Cheminées Poujoulat, having a bad time giving an interview

And this one is one of my favorite sailors, Marg Guillemot racing with Safran. This is the guy that on the last edition brought his boat ( racing) home without keel and finishing in 3th. He lost the keel offshore Brasil and made all the way to France without keel many times over 10k. when journalists asked him how hard it had been he smiled and said: well it was like sailing a big dinghy. I used to sail dinghies

and these are all the guys...and a girl, Sam, of course

Thanks Paulo
Your wellcome

Take a look at the 52 they are making designed by the same Na (Arjen Keer).







Now take a look at the 46ft I have designed more than 10 years ago and that I intended to have it built for myself (also an aluminium boat). Look at both interiors.






















There is a big coincidence in what regards design

Well, I find Arjen's boat a very nice one

Paulo

king 40 Cowes week 2012

Beautiful movie taken some days ago, on Cowes week, from one of the fastest 40ft performance cruisers around and I do really mean fast. In real time only the Ker 39 and boats like that will be capable of sailing at the same level. To give you an idea the rating of the boat is substantially bigger than the one of a J133

amazing sailing

This is a 2010 movie but there are some images here that I don't remember having seen so It seems that I didn't post this one and there are really some impressive footage there
