During the 2020 BOOT Dusseldorf (January 18-26) the Saffier Se 27 Leisure will be shown to the world for the first time. To obtain high speeds she has modern hull lines with a good form stability. This is achieved with a flat underwater section in the hull and a 2.60 m beam.
Weight reduction is also important. Aside from building the hull and deck in sandwich and vacuumed she is, as standard, fitted out with a 4.0 Kw Torqeedo engine with Lithium battery and folding prop. The complete electric propulsion is 70% lighter then a comparable diesel engine alone.
The lead keel gives her a high righting moment and combining this with a powerful rig, the Saffier Se 27ft Leisure is able to surf and stay in full plane downwind, while pointing high and fast upwind.
Tiller or wheel?
A dinghy sailer will prefer the tiller, while coming back from a larger yacht you might prefer the steering wheel. What ever you choose, both systems are well integrated in the design of the Saffier Se 27 Leisure.
Below, she has 4 berths and enough space for your complete wardrobe. A toilet and galley can be added.
So, we just have to wait until the Boot 2020 to discover more about the Saffier Se 27 Leisure. We’ll be there. Stay tuned!
