All our sailing yachts over 40 feet are characterized by a major innovation.
Today, all our sailing yachts over 40 feet are characterized by a major innovation. This is the Mainsail arch securing the mainsheet tackle further aft on the boom. This has resulted in many architectural changes, making sailing easier and safe, and making you more confident.
Trimming made easier
The Mainsail arch secures the mainsheet aft of the manoeuvring stations. The small distance between the arch and the mainsail makes it easier to centre the boom on the yacht. The tackle lashed to aft of the boom, reduces the tension on the sheet making trimming easier.
The mainsail arch completely clears the cockpit of trailing lines.
This creates a larger amount of space that is perfectly safe.
By getting rid of the mainsheet traveller on the coachroof, the companionway hatch now has a larger opening, resulting in a very comfortable 45° companionway stairs leading to the saloon. The coachroof cover and Bimini top, available on option, are attached to the mainsail arch. These completely protect the cockpit from the sun and bad weather. The mainsail arch is also used to house the cockpit lighting.
