Hull:
Kevin Ellway designed hullshape, low volume design similar to his highly successful exocet and ninja designs.
Hull plug created by master craftsman Alex Koukourakis (see ak woodworking for an example or two of his attention to detail) and built up from there by Alex and Phil of AtomikUK High Performance Sailing. A
Boat was then sent to Simon Maguire of Maguire Boats who fitted the rudder gantry and aligned all the foils and fitted the control system.
Boat is very strong and stiff, and has had no structural failures.
Front wing bars are exocet with aero section compression struts.
Side wing bars are Ctech round (soooo comfy to hike off!!)
Rear wing bars are Ctech
Trampolines are hydranet cat style, laced style that makes them really easy to fit / removed. Trampolines were refurbished in October this year with new outer panels and lacing rods.
Foils:

Rig:
2 x north H14 sails, one in amazing condition, one in club racing / training condition, full set of battens with both.

How fast is it??:
Well, that’s the question you’ve all wanted answered isn’t it…
Full set of exocet foils means this boat is easy to handle once flying, and outright straight line pace is around that of a 2.3 kitted mach2 or similar.
Much quicker than anything else in this price-range.
