Yacht description

Canting keel Open 30 in good condition.

Owner mainly used her for fun fast sailing and a few clubregatta´s.
She has been stored inside since 2016.


Owners comments:

We set up the boat for only day racing now, but the amount of space compared to the Mini 6.50 has much more possibilities. Bunks can be made in the aft part, middle section as nav station and kitchen and front section for storage and sails for example.

Regarding performance of the yacht she is a boat with an electrical canting system that is super easy to operate and a new developed main to perform better upwind.


TWA     30 deg                TWS      8-10 knots                      Boatspeed         7 knots

TWA     140 deg              TWS      15-20 knots                    Boatspeed         10-16 knots

With the new main the rating is more optimized and has better performance upwind, especially with more breeze. Boat is more in balanced so the boatspeed is more consistent.

Downwind we have a bigger gennaker than the old one so the boat can easily plane. With the extended (retractable) bowsprit we can move the gennaker 3 meters from the forestay, so the gennaker has always space for power. You even can think of a staysail for better performance.

Also with the new extended rudders you will have always control of the boat in any breeze. The balance with the sailplan and appendage configuration is much approved.
