Another Crazy Concept

They were touting this yacht design all over the gadget blogs this morning. It's beautiful and unique, but like most others, I doubt it will ever exist in anything except renderings.

Too many moving parts.

that's really interesting
I like it when people rethink traditional sail propulsion. I'd like it more if they started on smaller models rather than massive conceptual superyachts though.

Sailing Anarchy already tore that one to shreds.......could work on a smaller scale though.

This months Sail Mag has info on a new 31 footer. The mast and keel are attached to a large circumferential hoop around the beam of the boat. The harder the wind blows the more the mast heels avoiding the need to reef and the ballast moves to the windward side..... but the boat doesnt heel much. Kind of a cool concept... but again ..too many moving parts...

There is a German Cat that has an arch P/S (two masts) that would be great for getting under bridges. If I were ever to lose my present rig I would consider an arch as a replacement. Which would eliminate shrouds P/S.

Arch rigs can also be used on powerboats for before the wind, someting I considered back in the 80's.

This Lila-Lou seems a bit top heavy and would require more keel weight, whick may not matter on a large vessel of >100'.
