Did you know… …why we concentrate on achieving high ballast ratio’s?

Thursday 1st December 2016

The lower the centre of gravity the better the stability, therefore we concentrate on having a large proportion of stability coming from a “heavy” keel.

By using an infused  sandwich construction in both hull and deck, we can reduce the weight of the “structure” and therefore a large proportion of the yachts displacement comes by utilising the combination of a cast iron fin with a lead bulb bolted to the bottom of this fin. The result…. a high ballast ratio, superior sailing performance and safety, along with a premium sailing experience.
