This new boat is the perfect compromise between the emblematic 450 model and the 52. She offers an attractive option to navigators in search of a large “seaworthy and modern” owner’s boat. With her new visual identity, rigging and hull design, she provides increased performance, comprising a unique brand signature. Indeed, the 50’s elegance seduces thanks to the bevelled shape of her hulls, generous volumes and panoramic views, more than ever enhanced. With unparalleled accommodation possibilities, this new model is available in three, four or even… six cabins!
The decision to position the mast step further aft, which stems directly from VPLP’s experience in competitive sailing, provides this catamaran with multiple advantages:
-A self-tacking jib for simplified manoeuvres.
-A large forward triangle for a wider choice of downwind sails: a guaranty of performance,
-A shorter boom for easier manoeuvres.
-A main sail, with a high aspect ratio, enabling the capture of better airflow in the upper parts of the sail for optimised performance.
-The re-centring of weight, thanks to aft positioning of rigging, considerably reduces the boat’s pitch.
