Vicsail is proud to be Australian importers for SLY Yachts.
Vicsail's newest yacht in their marque is
the SLY Yacht. Arriving safely in Newport, she is ready to be tried in
Australian water. We will be following her and recording her through
different conditions. To follow her performance, find her on Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/slyaustralia?ref=hl
SLY Yachts are produced using state-of-the-art solutions and materials.
Their research and development geared not only towards performance, but
also to safety and comfort. The use of glass fibre and carbon fibre
sandwiched with epoxy resins, together with use of the vacuum bag
process and follow-up care, ensure a quality that is more lightweight,
more rigid, has less torsion and offer greater reliability and
durability guarantees in the long term. This kind of construction,
together with excellent weight distribution (43% of the overall weight
of the craft is concentrated in the lead fin and bulb offering an
improved righting arm), better facilitates glide and manoeuvre in both
motorboat and sailboat versions and improved wave cutting, also in
strong winds and fully risen seas. The mast, boom and rudder shaft in
carbon favour reduced pitch and list.
Take a look at her sailing in her native water of Italy.
