Thanks! Funny it does not come in the main Fox page but on the shipyard's page that builts the Fox for them.







But you are right, the 38ft looks great and it is also the ideal size for me. It will probably cost less than the Pogo 12.50 but more than the Pogo 10.50.

The boat has a big galley and a big storage space with an extra bunk. very interesting and a very nice looking boat with a great interior for cruising and I am sure it is fast enough in light winds and downwind. Probably better than the Pogo upwind

Regards

Paulo

Interesting floorplan compared to typical like it. It has storage where usually you see a nav desk of sorts on the port side. Altho there appears to be something on par just behind the mast. While the nav desk does seem to be going out of style per say, due to electronic nav aids, I still find a nav area to be nice for the radio, electric panels, laptop or laying out some kind of chart vs using the main saloon table. BUT, this is personal opinion, and may not follow the needs of other folks buying boats today.

Hey Marty, you have a nav desk and that's one of the more original designs on the boat. Like on the race boats, central, just in front of the stairs. It is partially fold-able and when not in use can serve as support table for the galley. You have space for instruments just in front of your eyes, between the mast and the table. You have plenty space for them.

Regards

Paulo

Hello,
We have left from Marseille on the 4th of March, and we are now in Gibraltar about to set sails towards Canarias. The Fox 10.20 has proved to be really good at sea with good speeds, especially reaching. Still a few twicks to do to get the maximum out of her.
It is quite fun to have so many people stopping by in each harbour asking about the boat.
I think this trip will help a lot getting every details sorted so the next customer will benefit for all that we are learning.

Regards

Thank you for your input, there has been a lot of debate visavi how these types of designs work as cruisers and if you can achieve bigger speeds and greater comfort with all the bits and pieces needed for a longer trip.

Regards,
Anders

Yes, certainly a good way to know how to improve a cruiser is to circumnavigate on it. A bit radical but certainly a very good way, perhaps the best way

The lifting keel is already working?

Hello,

Lifting keel is working properly. Best thing is that it does not move while sailing. (it had a bit, but we fixed it)
You should just be carefull not to lift it when there is some choppy sea. As it is lifted thanks to a big purchase and the mainsail winch, you just need to swet a bit to get it to the top.
So far, performances has been good. Of course you need to pay attention to the weight you carry around (as for every boat). It is all about knowing what you really need and where you want the weight to be.
After our navigation from Gibraltar to Canarias, we'll be able to estimate better how we get to actually live on board at sea, as so far we only did small jumps from one or two days max.
A French Magazine came onboard to try the boat, although you need to subscribe to read it. And it is in French.

Regards

I have read the test on the paper magazine. That's why I have asked if the keel was already functional. They say on the test that the lifting system was not finnished

Keep us posted and fair winds to you

Paulo,

So I was correct in that the "nav area" if you will, was that foldable table to the aft of the mast....ok, I can handle that. In reality, quite possibly a "better" place that where the storage unit is on the port side, that would be more atypical of that floorplan. Ie where it is on my 85 Jeanneau, but most of my stuff flipped flopped if you will. Ie head nav is on the starboard, galley, aft stateroom on port.

any way, life goes on.

Nice to see the owners of the F1020 popping in with info! look to see more.

Here is a link to their (Capado) web page/blog. Interesting pictures from the building of the Fox 10.20.
