PROAFILE – 12 March 2019
UNNAMED PROA is a near 60’ racing design with a crab claw schooner rig! It’s the work of Jeremy Fischer of Martinique, who built the EQUILIBRE some 10 years back. I know little about the design except that it was originally intended to enter the Route du Rhum. The very narrow hull features an extreme wave-piercing bow, no doubt a nod to the submarine like experience of sailing the boat fast in a seaway . A few of the construction pics seem to show concavity in the underwater profile, it would be interesting to know more.
Much thanks to Paul D. for the submission!
