Ginkgo too - 6m JI - optimization       2022

LOA: ~10,50 m 
Material: composit
Distinctive features: keel with trim tab and winglets

​​​​In collaboration with Giorgio Provinciali, an important hydrodynamic study was carried out on the keel of this 6mJI in order to optimize it. It allowed us to design a new keel more efficient while reducing considerably the drag.

This appendage equipped with a trim tab (a flap on the trailing edge) and winglets was entirely CNC machined to reach a great precision. The modification work was carried out with care by the Psaros Shipyard.

The first tests are promising. Next step: the world championship!

FD65S                                                                    2020

LOA: 6,50 m    Beam max: 2,25 m

Displacement : 630 kg    Draft : 1,25 - 1,50 m 

Upwind sail area: 28 m2 - Downwind sail area: 61.5 m2
Material: glass - Airex - vinylester, in infusion
Distinctive feature: lifting keel

The FD family is growing with this new design, the FD65S. With a look inspired by her big sister and a similar design brief: she is a sleek boat. She is a pure dayboat with a large cockpit and a flush deck where the spinnaker box and the solent furler are integrated.

Equipped with a lead bulb, her lifting keel allows to sail with a draft of 1.50 m or 1.25 m. It can be fully raised for transport.

Trust Yachts perfectly masters the technique of infusion on female mould and the quality of construction of their yachts is excellent.

NTFM-SYRA 18                                                2019

LOA: 5.50 m    Beam max: 2.20 / 3.70 m

Displacement : 135 kg    Mast : 9.60

Main sail: 19.00 m2    C0: 9.75 m2
Material: carbon - Corcell - epoxy

​​​​The SYRA 18 is an innovative foiler specially designed around the adjustable T-foil system developed by Yves Detrey and Nils Frei.

Performance: Light, she has a large sail area and a consequent righting moment that can be adjusted to wind conditions thanks to the canting foil and the rudder differential. There is no more time lost in the maneuvers related to foils transfer. The aerodynamics were pushed into these entrenchments (end plate effect and fairings) and the set of foils was the subject of intense development.

Accessibility: This hybrid hull offers excellent stability and maneuverability before takeoff. The general ergonomics allows the crew to change board easily.

Safety: This is a main point of this central foil concept, the deck plan is clear and the crew is not exposed to the trailing edge of the foils.

Freshly in the water, the first tests of this

proto are already promising!

476 proto 6.50                                   2007

LOA: 6,5 m    Beam max: 3 m    Displacement: 850 kg  

Draft: 2 m                                     
Main: 30 m2    Solent: 15 m2    Spinnaker: 95 m2
Material: glass - carbon - Airex - epoxy   

Distinctive feature: canting keel, daggerboard, water ballasts

and carbon mast

​​Designed and raced by Fabrice Germond, this prototype has been tested in the towing tank. This powerfull boat is equiped with a canting keel, together with a variable angle of incidence canard and water ballasts.​ This mini has proven very good racing abilities. Electrical and autopilot problems during the Transat 6.50 Charente-Maritime Bahia 2009 forced him to additional technical stops. The 476 finished therefore with a significant delay.

615 proto 6.50                                2006

LOA: 6,5 m   Beam max: 3 m    Displacement: 825 kg  

Draft: 2 m                                      
Main: 27 m2   Solent: 17 m2    Spinnaker: 100 m2
Material: carbon - nomex - epoxy    
Distinctive feature: canting keel, daggerboard

and carbon mast

​​​Initially designed as Mathieu Verrier's MEng project in 2004, this boat received a wide research and development process currently available only for much larger racing yachts (Towing Tank, Parametric Variation, Hydrodynamics and Structural Engineering) resulting in a lightweight, reliable and fast boat. Particular care over the build process was achieved, resulting in a very good racer. Due to auto pilot problems the skipper's expectation were not met on the transat eventhough the boat arrived 26th in Bahia.

R&D:   Aerotech                             2014

 

 

On a monohull upwind, the air flow on the basis of the jib is widely disturbed by the heeled hull. Wind tunnel tests have allowed VMG Yacht Design to highlight this phenomenon and develop a deflector that improve the air flow, the Aerotech.

The 850R is equipped with these Aerotechs.
