The Masthead


esigned at a manageable hull length of 40 feet, the

Territoire 11.8m

is built in STRONGALL (thick plates of

aluminium with almost no internal framing). She is built to

live a long time, and require no maintenance.

This exciting material is applied to a very modern sailing

boat. The result is a well-ballasted, fin-keel, cutter rigged

with modern proportions to sail effectively in all wind con-

ditions, with a high level of security.

Strongly built and able to take high seas, she has a fin-keel

in order to obtain high stability at high angles of heel. She

is equipped with lightweight arrangements to keep total

displacement low. Her displacement is equal to a classical

displacement, FRP built vessel.

The electrical equipment (often source of trouble when you

sail far from everywhere) is reduced to a minimum to en-

sure autonomy and reliability. So her crew will spend the

minimum time on maintenance.

The first

Territoire 11.80m,

under construction at Meta

Shipyard, is fitted with a dog-house, a clear deck, equipped

for efficient ventilation at sea, has a large sail locker, a

wooden tiller, a sheltered cockpit, a wind autopilot, solid

installation for strong anchor rollers, and a quality stove.

Owing to her Strongall construction, the internal structure

is very simple, which permits her to be built easily with any
