One of Australia’s leading multihull specialists, TMG (The Multihull Group), has announced that the new Dragonfly 32 Evolution will make her international debut at the Salon Nautique in Paris (8-16th December 2018) and then at boot Düsseldorf 2019 (Jan 19-27, 2019).
The Dragonfly 32 Evolution is the successor to the popular Dragonfly 32 Supreme. For the past few years, Quorning Boats has been working on the design of the new generation of wave piercing floats, which they developed for their Dragonfly 25 model and later for the Dragonfly 28 Performance. Now, they have taken this a step further and implemented the wave-piercing hull design and technology in the Dragonfly 32 series with the new Dragonfly 32 Evolution.
“This new design gives 20% more buoyancy in the floats and 20cm extra in the boat's overall beam,” says TMG Managing Director John Cowpe. “In addition, the buoyancy centre is located lower, which overall gives more initial stability and means that the boat can be pushed further in strong winds.
"The profiles of the floats are lower, which results in a less wetted surface in light wind. In strong seas, these floats perform elegantly and provide faster and more comfortable sailing. The boat has become sportier to sail and is more agile and responsive at the helm.
"The new Dragonfly 32 Evolution offers a new interior design in varnished elm wood. This gives a bright, modern and cosy look. The Dragonfly 32 Touring remains, as before, with lower rigging and the original standard floats.
"For those who want a more modern look and sporty and safe sailing with a taller rig, Dragonfly 32 Evolution is the perfect boat – every sailor’s dream.”
