New rounded bow on Open 60 Mare?

Robelz has great hopes on the extension of the modifications that are being made on the open 60 Mare (ex-Foncia), his countryman Riechers Open 60.

I am a believer in Riechers but I had not the hopes of Robelz on the efficacy and extension of the modifications that are being made on the 7 year's old boat at CDK technologies, the shipyard that had built it and one of the world's best in what refers Carbon top racers.

Well, maybe I am changing my mind. I heard that the below picture is the new bow.



If all the rest has been modified with the same depth and care...maybe he will have a competitive boat after all, even if I reserve my opinion to the next Barcelona world race.

Caribbean 600

some very nice images:



The race has been increasingly popular even if does not yet attract maxi racers or really top guns.



Anyway this year we had some top mini maxis and and a 90ft boat (Rambler), an older design. The two newer smaller designs beat the bigger one and race honors went to Bellamente a 72 ft mini maxi.



Bellamente was launched in 2012, is a 72-foot Mini Maxi designed by judel/vrolijk and built by New England Boatworks.



On 2th Shockwave, Launched in 2009 and also a 72' Mini Maxi, was designed by Reichel Pugh and built by McConaghy Boats.

Jim Clark's new 100ft VPLP designed 100ft

Talking the absence of really top sailboats in the USA, that's going to change due to this baby:



Jim Clark's new Maxi will be designed by VPLP one of the main racing designers in Europe (the ones that with Verdier designed the winner of the last Vendee Globe) and will feature the looks of a big Open boat.

Things seem to be changing in Us in what regards millionaires, sailing and top racing boats: George David the ownert of that older 90ft boat (Rambler) that was defeated on the Caribbean 600 by two more modern 70fters, has a new 80 ft maxi being built at New England Boatworks, a Juan K design.

Also a new WallyCento, designed by Reichel Pugh is being built at Green Marine.

One difference remains to Europe, not in what regards big cruiser racers like the wally cento but in what regards truly racing boats like the one in the picture: They are not owned by multimillionaires and sailed by them but owned by sponsors and sailed by the best professional sailors. That explains the much bigger number of true top racing sailing boats in Europe. I hope that after the big success of the America's cup things start to change on that direction. Sailing needs America to be more into sail racing at top level and I hope this new boat is just the beginning.

Dufour 310GL

I have made a recent post about this boat that had impress me at the Dusseldorf boat show, said that the boat had a very nice hull designed by Felci but could not find a photo to show it. Here it is:



The boat was tested by the Italians from SVN that as usual made a great static test and comparison with the Hanse 325 but not much in what regards sailing. Anyway they said about it:

"It took time to convince me that this was just a 31ft boat."

Regarding sailing they say the obvious: that the boat with a selftaking small jib is not very at ease in light winds but as they failed to have a furling code 0 aboard could not really tell about the boat performance even if they think that will be good The boat can also be equipped with a bigger genoa.

Here is the test, in Italian...I know that most cannot read it but there is plenty of information on the many images. A nice graphic work:

SVN - Dufour 310 GL

Owen and Clarke 130ft yacht

Like on the smaller boats on big yachts the model of Open boats type of hulls is an option and the advantages besides huge interior space are sailing with little heel and need a much smaller crew. The concept took some time to get to big yachts (the first one was Nomad IV by Finot) but it seems to have come to stay.

Owen and Clarke another cabinet with experience in racing Open boats designed this beauty:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Is the first image contorted, or are me old eyes playing tricks on me...
The deck forward the mast looks enormous... But not so much on the other...

No, that's an effect of perspective. when something is big and you look at it fro one of the sides, the other looks smaller and this yacht is BIG (count the number of forward hatches and you will see it is the same.

A lateral view:

Owen and Clarke 130 Maxi 2nd version

And if you don't like the looks of that one, maybe you like more one of these versions

Click on the image and on the photobucket click on the + signal. These images deserve to be seen big. They lose a lot with the smaller size.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

No paulo - i was right, your first image is distorted...
Just check the distance between the lifeline stanchions on it all along the sheer... You will realize that the distance gets wider to the bow but which is not the case on the rest of the images...

on the lateral view from yours in a post above the mast seems to be placed very much midships... on the angled view you have the impression, that the mast is stepped very well aft amidships... which is clearly not the case, if those images all show the same boat...

That's the view where the bow is closer to the camera, thus showing stanchions to appear at wider distance. I don't think it's distortion, just a funny perspective/camera angle of the model. In another angle, the bow looks short, cockpit's huge, and stanchions may seem closer as they go forward.
