Sail-World.com : New Fast Racer Cruiser from Bakewell-White Design

New Fast Racer Cruiser from Bakewell-White Design

'New Bakewell-White designed hull on crane.'    Bakewell-White Yacht Design

New Zealand’s increasingly competitive 50ft fleet is soon to be joined by a new performance racer/cruiser from the board of Bakewell-White Yacht Design.

Designed for a repeat client, the brief called for a fast, fun, yacht that is offshore capable and able to be raced and cruised shorthanded. The resulting yacht is an exciting mix of carbon fibre, grinder pedestals, canting keel technology, and a designer interior including LCD TV and entertainment system.


Sail Plan of the new racer/cruiser. -  Bakewell-White Yacht Design?nid=27199  
The medium tech. foam and carbon structure has been engineered by High Modulus and the build beautifully executed by the team at Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders at their East Tamaki yard.

The canting keel system and lifting canard were designed and engineered in-house by Bakewell-White Yacht Design. The keel is canted by a pair of custom built hydraulic rams through an arc of 110º and controlled electronically from the helm or handheld remote developed by Onboard Systems Ltd.

An extensive testing programme has resulted in a hull form best described as ‘dinghy like’ and although of moderate beam, is highly form stable to maximize the huge righting moment generated by the 55º cant.

The carbon spars and rigging are being supplied by Matrix Masts using custom tooling developed specifically for this yacht.

The sail wardrobe has been developed by Richard Bouzaid of Doyle Sails, Auckland, and draws heavily on his work both with Alinghi and the later stages of the Ericsson VO70 programmes.

The Harken deck package features a full manual winch package with two grinder pedestals, bucking the recent trend towards power winches.

The social side of sailing is very important to the owners and their longterm crew have become great friends, so a welcoming, comfortable interior is essential to the success of this yacht. The interior sleeps 12 including a kingsize berth, pressure hotwater, fridge/freezer, and TV. There will be much conviviality for those privileged enough to join this group of talented yachties for a tot.

The dramatic interior furnishings are courtesy of Interior Designer Kim Lilley of Parkhurst Design.

Whilst not designed with regard to any specific rule this new yacht will join the growing New Zealand IRC fleet in time for the opening race of the RNZYS summer series before embarking on an extensive programme in New Zealand and later Australia.
