7.50 Open from JPS Productions
The new 7.5m raceboat design by the Groupe
An Open 60' design for a smaller budget! If you want to be
first on the finish line, you'd better be on a groupe Finot design.
The materials, the construction methods
for top boat design have greatly improved in the past couple of years.
The use of Carbon composites in the hull, the queel wing results in an evolution of the
shape of the hulls, the keels and rudders.
|The 7.50 Open is a high performance one-design boat. It is
currently the faster monohull for its size. The Groupe Finot applied all its experience
from the very successfull Open 50' and 60' to develop this great raceboat.
|Sail area, upwind
- Monolithic carbone
- Watertight Carbon wing mast
- Twin rudders
- Bout-dehors orientable
- 300 Kg bulb at 2.5 m depth
- No water ballast,
- The bow-sprit can be rotated
- Four crew members
||The experience from the winning Open 50' et 60' :
- Laminate hull and deck with partial use of carbon composites
- Hull shape with new distribution of the weight and volume to improve stability and
- Liftable Carbon keel for transportation purpose
- New bulb shape
- large cockpit for maniability and for optimization of crew position according to the
- Asymmetric spinnaker
||The boat is wide to optimizes the use of the crew weight. The water line
is relatively narrow. The good stability of the boat allows the use of large sail area
whatever wind conditions. There is a small cabin on the front for the equipment and for
protection in the harbor.
The tranportation can be done using a regular road carrier by
tilting the boat and retracting the keel.
