The Saffier 6.50 Cruise is to a state-of-the- art modern daysailer while still keeping those beautiful classic hull lines intact.
The hull is one aspect of her seaworthiness and keeping the righting moment the same was important. With the new keel shape, and these days being able to put the centre of gravity much lower in the keel, we ended up with 20% less weight in the keel with an even better righting moment.
Along with the new rudder and new rig she has much more performance, especially going upwind.
The rigg has a large mainsail and a self-tacking jib. Furthermore she can easily be fitted out with a furling code zero sail. This provides a very effective way of getting more sail area downwind or on a reach and the handling is as simple as a furling jib.
With the new deck and cockpit there is much more space and the seating is much more comfortable; she is also very easy for one person to control and sail alone sitting at the helm, which is a real benefit.
The design will appeal to a broad range of people who are looking for a simple-to-sail open yacht, with beautiful lines and all the comfort and performance you expect from a modern daysailer.
