A boat designed to improve on the already successful Cheinz concept. The boat performed very well, showing exceptional upwind performance as well as maintaining the downwind speed of the Cheinz.


Tacking ability at the top end of the rigs was also very good showing the new appendages are working as well as expected.


The new deck layout features a removable plastic lid and repositioned winch.


Using elements of the theme of chined hulls, there are also some touches of a slightly different approach to the underwater lines.
I have used an elliptical theme for sections 20-50% back to soften the effect of circular sections used on the current crop of designs.
It still has those on the entry sections but then they transition to the elliptical type to create an easily driven hull.
Wetted area is still on the low side, and the chines minimize windage in heavier breezes, and add some “bite” when sailing to windward.
