Adelaide 50 - Inspired by automotive design

Create a notification for "Catamaran"

The highlight of the Adelaide 50 is undoubtedly the lines of the coachroof and superstructure plunging aft - a design inspired by automotive lines. The composite construction adopts structural fittings as part of the interior to significantly reduce weight. The steeply inverted bows, the generous 1,325-square foot (123 m²) sail plan and the use of daggerboards demonstrate strong ambitions in terms of performance. The owner’s program includes sailing in a wide variety of latitudes - and therefore not necessarily in the most clement weather conditions... Vincent Lebailly has therefore opted for a helm and maneuvering station completely sheltered in the nacelle – getting back to the logic of the automobile influence here. The living area also features a U-shaped galley and a vast saloon. The hulls are home to three cabins.
