Matera 50 - Carbon and daggerboards!

Create a notification for "Multihull"

A professional in the industry for 30 years and involved in five America's Cup campaigns, Steve is obviously interested in high-tech construction and performance. The structure of his Matera 50 is built in carbon foam composite and the daggerboards are made of carbon.  The hulls have been designed for good passage through the waves and reduced pitching. That said, when laden, the nacelle is fairly low to the water, at 2’6” (75 cm). A sport rig, with 5% more sail area, is planned. The aft cockpit is equipped with a tilting platform and a canvas cockpit enclosure is available. The forward cockpit is dedicated to sailing maneuvers. The interior is completely open aft, while remaining protected by a rigid bimini that is particularly enveloping.
