Sword 39′ presentation
Sword 39′ is a powerfull sailing vessel, intended to be used for long and fast cruises accross the seas and oceans.
This boat has been designed following the design brief of a sailor, in 2020. The boat is designed and will be built in Plywood/Balsa with Glass and Kevlar fiber+Epoxy resin. This process permits to limitate the moulding construction (big investments for a One/Off unit) and tends to combine the strenght and the lightness of wooden construction.
This sailing vessel present a single fixed keel with a single rudder. The superstructure presents a relativlly low high to improve the design shape of the boat and in order to improve the visibility of the helmsman. The roof top is extended toward the rear to protect crew members in the cockpit (same as open racing boats). Main of ropes are driven back to the cockpit along the superstructure. The shape of the roof allows a clever integration for this recess.
Inside Sword39′, 2 double cabins (a 3 cabin version can be proposed), a large living room as well as a galley, chart table and a bathroom with dedicated place for the shower.
Sword39′ is powered by a sail drive unit Nanni 39hp. The rig does not present any backstay in order to improve the shape of the main sail. The boat presents a genoa, storm sail and a gennaker. The mooring line is positionned in the middle of the boat, at the bottom of the mast fixation.
The conception of Sword39′ is in progress and the construction should be started by the end of the year2020.
