The boat is 56 feet. It is a huge kite! I was absolutely mesmerized by the wake. It looked like a laser's wake! I'll ask if I can ride the main. I used to do that on a square rigger that I worked on when I was a kid. Not quite the same thing though! (we could only point 60 degrees and 2700 sq feet of canvas on a broad reach we were lucky to hit 8 knots!) Sailing has always been my favourite thing but this adds a whole new dimension to it.

What a gorgeous boat! Cool to the see difference so clearly in the amount of water being moved aside! Do you have a full interior? What is the displacement?

What do you mean full interior?

Displacment is (XXXX) but I'll give you boat weight which is around 15000 lbs (now). Racing will be 14400 Lbs.

Yep that's light! What I wonder is do you have interior woodwork or minimalist galley and pipe berths. Enclosed head or (as I saw on a racer once) out in the open! The boat I was sailing on has a full cruising interior (lots of enclosed storage, full galley with microwave, very plush salon) with even a separate shower but all the woodwork is veneer over foam! I didn't realize that you could have your cake and eat it too.

OK... the inside is all real American Red Cherrywood, glued onto marine plywood, glued onto core which is Divinycel (PVC), except the corners of doors and corners of furniture that are solid wood. All hand made, for best fitting.

We have 3 bedrooms. One forward, and 2 aft, a full galley with a 100 liter refrigerator and 2 full equiped heads. (keep in mind all fiberglass work is PVC also.


Salon



Galley



Owner cabin forward




Aft Stbd room, port is twin.



forward room (owner cabin) head



Navigation table



But all this should be on a thread "the dry part of my boat, until a French came around".....

More in a minute....

You showed me yours, I'll show you mine!

Wonderful information and photos, Giu. Thank you for the show! We still have light winds here, season starts in April. But the other day we got 5.6knots in under 10 knots of wind with just the GenoaI can't wait for April and 15 - 20 knots of wind! My baby is fast (not like yours mind you) and I looooooove to go fast! Refresh my memory, how long is Giulietta? and sign me up for the cross-atlantic!
