Yacht description

The Team Heiner 38 was designed by Juan Kouyoumdjian and Roy Heiner as the little sister of the present V-70 generation, the type of yacht that competed for the first time in the 2005/2006 Volvo Ocean Race. The boat can sail in up to 8 knots of wind speed faster than the wind and by 20 knots wind has almost the wind speed. 



Een bijzonder schip
Wat deze boot zo bijzonder maakt, is het kielsysteem en het feit dat de Team Heiner 38 een wedstrijdboot is dat volgens de CE-normen gebouwd is. Dat maakt dat de Team Heiner 38 zowel met wedstrijden mee mag doen in de kustwateren als op de oceaan.

The ship's hull and deck are made from a carbon laminate with a sandwich of closed cell PVC foam. All heavily loaded places or parts are provided with a high density foam. A vacuum injection method is used here. The heavily loaded bulkheads are made of solid carbon. The deck is glued to the hull and a number of operating lines are integrated in the sandwich panel of the deck. The steering columns are integrated in the deck construction. The hull is finished with a vinylester gelcoat top layer and a thin binding fiberglass skincoat for scratch durability and UV resistance.

After all carbon work, the boat is fired up to 70 degrees to guarantee the optimum material properties of carbon and epoxy.

Steering system
The Team Heiner 38 is equipped with double carbon rudders, built by Pauger. In addition, the boat has two steering wheels and steering systems from Lewmar with JP3 bearings, which makes the steering feel light even at inclination angles.

Swivel keel 
The swivel keel is hydraulically driven and swivels up to 35 degrees. Operation is easy via push buttons on the steering column which, depending on the selected button, the keel or automatic tack in 10 seconds, can be stopped at any angle or placed in the normal vertical position.  The hydraulic system is supplied by Cariboni.


The boat is equipped with a carbon mast from Seldén with three sets of arrowed spreaders in combination with a 7 / 8th witnessed headstay, composite rigging but no backstay. The mast is deck stepped so the interior remains dry. Tension on the main bulkheasd is applied by an adjustable front stay system that can be used as a trim opportunity manually . The bow of the boat is equipped with a 1.4 meter long carbon bowsprit as a neck angle for the asymmetrical 7 / 8th and mast top spinakers.
