The brief for this vessel focused on achieving the highest levels of performance and has meant Future Fibres has been able to utilise state-of-the-art developments from its work in the Grand Prix race arena.


Has the very latest development in head stay furling. AutoLock Headstay furling lock. The Autolock is recognized universally as the most aerodynamically and cleanest available fully automatic lock systems.

Our focus:

A few of the main improvements here include a lower initial investment, a significant reduction of compression in the mast, a lower weight count and less creep ( construction stretch ) while accessibility for maintenance and sail changes have been made easier. The now much smaller and thinner halyard runs through the luff pocket in the sail and no longer through the mast. After hoisting the sail and locked and tension the Cunningham, the hoist line disconnects after which the sail can be hydraulically furled in and out.
