A 42′ (12.8 m) LOA daysailer conceptualized simultaneously as Version A, to give the client a choice in aesthetic – while fulfilling the same design brief for an expedition-style overnighter / daysailer with focus on “green” propulsion and construction. She features a modern hull form and appendages, with lifting keel, but retains references of classic American yacht design.
|Length Overall||42' / 12.8m|
|Length Waterline||38' / 11.58m|
|Beam||12.5' / 3.8m|
|Draft||8' / 2.44m (keel down) ~ 6' / 1.83m (keel up)|
|Displacement||11000# / 5034 kg|
The propulsion system is unique and brand new technology – a parallel-hybrid drive allowing the boat to be motored, either under electric power with a 10 kw (13.4 bhp) electric motor or with a 30 bhp (22.4 kw) diesel. Power is delivered through a fixed-3-blade propeller on a retractable shaft.
The boat is intended to sail in remote and interesting parts of the world, so her draft is reducible from 8’ (2.44 m) to 6’ (1.83 m) while underway, with the keel lifting mechanism contained within the saloon table base.
Though primarily to be used as a daysailer, there are two cabins below, a small galley and head and a comfortable saloon.
