The New SIG 45 is almost launched

I have gotten some pictures on a very special new performance cat build in Italy that is close to launching the name is Le Breton Sig 45
She is 45 ft long and has a beam of 27.ft 6 in and looks like the ultimate racing machine
Build out of carbon prepeg and a light displacement of only 5.2 tons and a sail area of 134 M2
she should be able to beat anything comparable on the market.
This gives her a weight to sail area ratio of 1:25.7
She will probably move without wind .
I just thought I had to share this with you and have included some pictures.

Greetings
Gideon

Totally unsuitable. No airconditioning.

At 20 plus knots the air should be conditioned nicely.

I am sure at the speeds this cat will achieve you would prefer the have an umbrella instead of air conditioning to keep the salt water spray off
