Boats

Judges for the 2019 Boat Builder Awards are expecting to see foiler technology strongly presented in the list of nominations in the Innovative On-Board Design Solution award category.

Compared to its predecessors, the TF35 has been designed with the ambitious brief to offer top level foiling to a wider audience of sailors.

The catamaran's individually-tailored layout will include spacious accommodation for 11 guests and crew.

Boat owners are reminded of their responsibilities on the eve of the NSW Government stepping in to remove an 11 metre derelict boat dumped on an emergency mooring at Camden Haven.

The French-built boats won IRC 2, 3 , 4 and Double-handed and also picked up a second and three thirds in the same divisions.

To date it has taken 26 months, 50,000 man hours and £5.5 million to get the boat in the water.

It has been three years since Bavaria's first 40. Phil Ross checks to see if the new version still rates.

Can the dedicated bluewater cruiser still sell in a crowded marketplace? Phil Ross finds out.

The Nanni N3.21 engine with SP 60 Sail Drive will be the only engine to power Hanse’s 8.75m Dehler 29 cruiser/racer sailing boat.

As the first show in the European boating season, the Cannes Yachting Festival is the platform for Fountaine Pajot and NEEL Trimarans to unveil a range of new multihulls for the first time in the world.

As catamarans design got mainstream, they got slower. Phil Ross checks out to see if Seawind have brought back the speed.

While the owner downsized in length, it appears to Phil Ross he may not have downsized overall.

The wheel assemblies are attached to the brackets using quick-release pins. Once at the water they can be flipped up out of the way or simply removed for storage.

This means that the sail, component and hull logos will change through the season as new boats are produced.

Beneteau re-introduce the First Line into its Oceanis series and Phil Ross checks it out.
