The “Gonet & Cie” P28 prototype is a 28 feet (8.53 metres) foiling monohull. A totally avant-garde boat thanks to its design, its hydrofoils and its rig, it is intended for sailing in all kinds of wind conditions.
With respect to materials, a boat of this kind cannot allow compromise. All the elements are designed of carbon composite for extreme lightness and strength. The sandwich core is made from honeycomb and the rig is made from high modulus fibre.
An avant-garde boat in line with sailing’s major developments
The simplicity of the rig enables the crew to focus on controlling the foils. Free of certain sail trimming duties, the crew make gains in terms of efficiency and mobility. In this way, they retain the necessary balance to maintain optimum speed during manœuvres.
