Philosophie du concept


Queentime is the fruit of a study which lasted near three years. A realized inquiry beside several hundreds of sailors  or motorboat people  put in evidence   the common requirements  for the persons who practice these two kinds of activities.

Hull of a length 12 m not looking like a floating hotel. It is preferable to use two great spacious and comfortable cabins.

Permanent comfort inside as outside, allowing long moments aboard, as cruising as mooring , so as to be able to have a little house at the seaside.

Great outside areas cockpit allowing to receive with friendliness a very great number of  guests as is often practised it in the Mediterranean Sea. Bow area  possible to be  transformed into sunarea.

The great ease of use ,very net requirement from people coming from the motorboat racing because they are afraid wrongly that sailing is more difficult to practice that motorboat. For the sailors , the will is noted to possess a very simple boat to handle.

Original requirement the cruising speed in the engine must be of the order of 10 12 knots too much not to punish those that come of the motorboat racing.
