One of the best sailing cruiser-performance yacht ever built. X 41 (3cabin) is an exceptional sailing yacht.

Available for charter, sailing weekends, racing charter, day sailing trips or sailing events or team building yacht charter.

COMET 45

   

This beautiful designed boat will meet your all sailing expectations... 

The hull was designed specifically with the idea of improving performance. The bow and stern are both vertical to increase the waterline length. The bow sections are very slender. The craft’s high freeboards mean that the deckhouse could be kept low and compact. It also boasts characteristic “loop hole” windows. A medium to light displacement translates in to excellent performance with a full cruising load. The deck offers wide gangways and a very large cockpit that extends all the way to the open transom. The interior layout is quite particular: the central position of the head allows for great freedom in organising the saloon without interfering in any way with the clean exterior lines.

This is fast and very competitive sailing boat.

ELAN 350 X12

   

The Open-class inspired Elan 350 has once again consolidated Elan’s reputation as a builder of exciting performance-cruising sailing yachts, where neither performance, nor the cruising capabilites are left to compromise.

Its wide transom, twin-rudder arrangement and chined hull deliver excellent control even at high heel angles. Her T-shaped keel ensures a lower centre of gravity and improved righting movement, which in turn reduces displacement. At the end it all adds up to an exhilarating sailing performance, which one expects on much bigger boats. Maybe the best feature yet is how effortless she is to sail, even in challenging conditions.

The powerful aft quarters that gives the Elan 350 her power and pace also engenders her with an unrivalled cruising accommodation, with a really spacious aft cabin, generous heads compartment and an aft stowage locker. Her sailing capabilities and comfortable interior  with 3 cabins will definitely be the envy of many larger cruising yachts. The Elan 350 will definitely put a big grin on every sailing enthusiast’s face.

VOR 70 Green Dragon


Green Dragon” was specifically built as the Irish entry in the 2008-2009 Volvo Ocean Race, in which she finished 5th. In 2012 she took line honours in the Round Ireland Race. Check out her programme below.

The Volvo Ocean 70 is the former class of racing yachts designed for the Volvo Ocean Race. It was first used in the 2005–06 race (replacing the Volvo Ocean 60 yachts which were first used in 1993) and uses sliding daggerboards and a canting keel which is capable of canting transversely up to an angle of 40 degrees.

The Volvo Ocean 70 is not a singular yacht design but rather a set of design rules to which competing boats must adhere. This is similar to the concept to the design and construction rules that define a racing car.

Version 2 of the V70 rule, which was further developed to apply the lessons learned on the previous event and ensure the continuing evolution of this outstanding class, was released in September 2006.
