SPHERA 980

SPHERA has been studied as a simple and moderate boat, suitable to be built in a reasonable time by an amateur boatbuilder but capable of long cruises in safety and comfort. SPHERA has an average-low displacement (182 of displacement/length ratio) and quite a generous sail surface, even if not excessive (the sail area/displacement ratio is 18.8, rather high for a cruise boat), a feature which guarantees good speed performance. The high beam, (the length/ beam ratio is 2,78 on deck and 3,15 at waterline), affords good initial stability and allows full use of the sail plan, even with quite strong winds. The hull lines have been optimised more for long passages reaching or running downwind than for breathing upwind. More information at: www.bcademco.it
