esigned at a manageable hull length of 40 feet, the
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.

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
