Fitted with a tall carbon or aluminium mast, the new Oceanis 51.1 has up to 35 per cent additional sail area made of high-tech materials. The boat also has a 2.8m lead bulb keel for better performance.
Completing this Limited Edition are a composite steering wheel, deck fittings, and a bowsprit for a range of new sailing experiences.
Different from the offshore-fitted 51.1 model, the Oceanis 41.1 will be optimal for onshore races during the China Cup. With a taller mast, a lower boom and a set of Elvström Windward 300+ sails, the model is a high-preforming cruising boat.
The China Cup International Regatta’s competitors will race onshore and offshore on these new boats.
