HOPE 28′ presentation
The customer of this singular sailing vessel is HANDISPORT, a french association allowing disable people to practice all sorts of sports.
HOPE28’ is a ketch rigged boat. This sailing plan permits several people to check and trim sails at the same time. This boat is to be a pedagocial support for all passengers.
The boat is particularly wide in order to provide a great transversal stability as well as a safe and nice circulation on deck for wheeling chairs (flush deck cockpit).
The boat is actually sailing in Normandy (France) and is an happy story for all children who want to sail and practice navigations.
The boat is to be built by the shipyard LEBAILLY NAUTISME.
