NTFM-SYRA 18 2019
LOA: 5.50 m Beam max: 2.20 / 3.70 m
Displacement : 135 kg Mast : 9.60 m
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!

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.

LOA: 3,35 m Beam max: 2,25 m Displacement: 28 kg
Sail area: 8m2
Material : carbon – Herex
Designed in 2003 for the World Championship, this boat is rather a conceptual design since a new trend was tested: design a stable skiff type hull rather than the conventional narrow hull currently in use at the time.
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.
