Thanks, I did not noticed that it was on the movie. Great eyes, it was not very easy to catch and I did not expect to be there since it is not on his site.

That's funny because I had been some days ago on David Réard site trying to get more information about one of his designs and certainly that particular boat is not there. I believe he is not very happy with the way that cabin looks. Probably it is a variation of a Classic 395 with a "funny" cabin. Doesn't look classic anymore

Edit: It is a Classic 395, this one:



For the length probably he considered the LOA with that big spi pole. No other they had only taken pictures from that boat from below. Very nice hull.

The Classic 395:







David Réard's most know sailboat is the Bepox and I had already posted here also about other of his boats, the Walkabout 43:

http://www.walkabout.it/en/yachts-projects/



The Bepox:







I was on the site a week ago looking for information on this boat:



I wanted to make a post about it and his solo skipper, that after having circumnavigated on the "right" direction is planing to use this boat (that was designed for that) to circumnavigate by the three capes, but this time against the prevailing winds and without any fossil energies.

I am very curious about what David Réard will consider the best 34ft boat to do that. Certainly not as beamy as what he normally designs for general use with that size but with only 34ft it cannot be too narrow. A boat with that size with passagemaking in mind needs all stability it can get, including hull form stability but cannot be too beamy since it will be going upwind most of the time.

An interesting young NA and among the one that has more interesting stock plans. Very interesting and nice boats:

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Both of those cabin trunks are not very good looking.

New boat: Euphoria 54

Euphoria? I bet this will not say anything to almost all. That’s a new line of yachts from Sirena…and even if some know the shipyard most will never have heard about it…but I am pretty sure that they will heard a lot more in the future.

If I say that Sirena is the shipyard that makes the Azuree that started with some interesting boats (33 and 40) and went one with a truly great one, the Azuree 46, then you all will understand what I am talking about.

Azuree 46:



I saw the boat in Dusseldorf and the design looks as good as on the video with a good quality interior. Great work by Rob Humphreys: a very fast, beautiful and comfortable cruiser.

I learned also that the “old” 40 was going to be replaced soon by another Rob Humpreys design (even if the 40 has few years) and I thought to myself, that these guys knew what they were doing, have the money to invest and probably would be a big shipyard in no time: High quality boat design brought by the best Nas, great building quality and a relatively low price should bring them success rapidly.

I thought that rob Humphreys would be their NA for all models but then I heard about Euphoria. Euphoria is not the name of a model but the name of a brand new line to join to the existent Azuree, a line of yachts that start at 56ft and has already previewed a 68 and a 84ft boat….and the designer of this one is not Humphries but German Frers.

They could have not chosen better: Humphreys for the “smaller” boats, Frers for the big yachts, boats with a superior finish, that will go on the Swan approach and I am not talking only about looks but also about the speed...at a much lower price.

What is fantastic is that I had heard about this new line just some time ago, they just finished launching the 46 and they have already the Euphoria 54 built and ready to launch: Big investment and hard play by this recent Turkish shipyard.

I had just seen the design and I was posting about it:












…and they have already the boat on display on the Istanbul Boat show:







The boat is not only beautiful, with an interior designed by one of the best design specialist cabinet:

DESIGN UNLIMITED | Superyacht interior design and exterior styling

as German Frers had made it very fast as we can see looking at the boat dimensions (just a bit more than 15 T):

LOA : 16.31m….LWL: 14.68m….Beam: 4.78m….Draft: 2.4/3.0m….Engine 75hp…. Tankage 700L water, 450L diesel.

The boat as also a big dingy garage. That is one modern trend on boats bigger than 55ft: what is the purpose of having a sleek and beautiful yacht if the line is spoiled by having a dingy over the deck or on davits? The last solution is not only less seaworthy as it puts a lot of weight on the back of the boat. Not a problem for a truly big yacht (except aesthetics) but not a good solution on a 60ft boat.

Some posts back I was saying that if German Frers designed the 2009 Swan 60 now, it would be already a slightly different hull, with a more straight bow and a beam a bit pulled more aft (because that's the general development direction followed almost by all top NA) and here it is a 2013 German Frers design with about that size and those characteristics. That's amazing the speed of design evolution on the last years: 4 years of difference and it is almost sure that the same NA (if a top one) would not design the "same" boat exactly the same way. Not big differences, but clearly visible ones.

A swing keel for the Sun Odyssey 349

Finally the swing modern keel is mounted on one of the big mass produced cruisers and the honor goes to the Sun Odyssey 349:





Lifting keels are around for many years and some, like the Southerly even have ballasted ones but only with a percentage of the total boat ballast on them, but hydraulic lifting keels with big draft and all ballast on the keel are a relatively new concept even if they are widely used already by many smaller production French shipyards.

They are by far the best solution in what regards a need of small draft maintaining boat performance in boats were a truly lifting keel (vertically) occupies too much interior space and that means all boats smaller than 40ft and even bigger.

Regarding lifting keels, if well designed on relatively small sailboats these keels have the advantage of allowing for more draft when deployed lowering the CG and giving a great performance upwind.
HMoll and opc11 like this.

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:

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:
