About 50,000 Euros according to their web site. There's a great series of photos showing the build of the first one on their Facebook page. IMHO, this has the potential to really change the industry. An aluminum hull lends itself to robotic assembly like in the auto industry. It'll be very interesting to see if they can get an automated assembly line going.

I hope they get some extensive English coverage soon so us Americans can read about them.

Well, I was new to this site and in particular to this thread, and I can myself be sarcastic at times, so it's perfectly fine

Hell Paulo, that little revolution is an ocean bob sled. Another Russian Sputnik,
How much do they cost? If I was 22 I'd buy one just to sail once across the Atlantic one time then sell it. I'd bring 25 bottles of cheap wine, 5 ounces of herb and have a ball. What a wonderful little boat, far better than any 22 footer from the old days. Did you see how they did the boiler work? That was an amazing process. I wish I spoke French I would have loved to hear what the NA was saying. Heck if I was not doing something different and I had not much to do I would buy one of those little space ships and sail her to the BVI's and I'm now over 60.
For an Aluminium boat with a lifting bulbed keel it is surprisingly inexpensive: About 50 000 euros and that include French VAT of about 20%.

Yes it is an Adventurer boat and one that can go anywhere and upwind the only problem towards other mini has to do with a bigger wave drag. Without waves of considerable size it will be faster even upwind: The bigger power will compensate the slight bigger drag on those circumstances.

I know it seems odd but Raison showed that in what regards transats, were the downwind sail is more frequent, the boat has a real speed advantage. In any transat specially between France and Brazil they also got upwind sailing, so the boat don't lose much even going upwind. You can see that without almost no waves, close upwind his boat is faster than the one of his partner, a very fast one with a conventional bow.



Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hi Paulo,

If you were not a racer and you wanted to sail one of these little mini's across the Atlantic how would they work with far less sail than what we see in the racing. The average man or women could not hold as much sail as the professionals can for 16 days or so on a crossing.

Will we be seeing a lot of these mini's sailing oceans over the next few years? I've got a feeling there will be a lot of them around the world like a swarm of bees.

I've already started saving my pennies and after I sell the Boreal down the road I'm going to get one of these little babies as my final yahoo. They can even bury me in one of them just sitting at the helm six feet under, mast sticking out of the ground as a flag pole.

No, I don't think so because people that are interested in sailing oceans will be, like they are now, a small minority. The truth is that with just a bit more than 50 000 euros one can buy a new mass production boat faster, bigger, more comfortable and more adapted to coastal cruising:



That Revolution 22 will remain the boat for a guy that likes to voyage hassle free without not much space or comfort and the guys that like to do that are and will be only a minority. Nothing wrong with that. Sailing has many sides and tastes, all right...for different guys and with different boats to each one

Regards

Paulo

Sailing and foiling.

That's the new revolution: From the first experiences to the accomplishment with the Hydroptere and the little Moth now it is the more important research on the America's cup boats.

Planning is already possible on many performance cruising boats...what will be the first one able to foil?

A short history of foiling. It is in French but the images talk by themselves:

Superyachts sailing

Another stormy day on this Easter...this had been a tough year. Let's have some sun and beautiful yachts. I heard that the Loro Piana this year had a big number of superyachts, I don'y have images yet, but some older ones will do.

If you have a problem with millionaire's sailingboats remember that each of these boats gives work to 20 sailors that have the luck to be paid to sail those beauties and that without them we would not have these beautiful sights and wonderful boats.
