Haka 137 is a design for a very interesting sailing program: Passage making in the Roaring Forties.
She is a light displacement of moderate proportions. Balance under sail to use a windvane is a primary requirement. She is a powerful design with her deep bulbous keel and the ability to ballast fresh water.
The cutter rig is powerful, efficient, rugged and easy to handle. Its yankee furls well, the staysail is used to beat in rough weather. Many light sails are available to boost performance in pleasant conditions. The carbon mast allows a tall rig without stability penalty.
Construction is extremely strong in sandwich Airex/epoxy/glass and Kevlar reinforcements. Crash-box and watertight bulkheads add to safety.
The accommodation plan is planned for deep sea sailing with proper quarter berth, U-shaped galley, full size chart table. The short cabin gives allround visibility and protect the cockpit in bad weather.
