VG-111 has been primarily developed for the high-end IRC racer/cruiser
market. This design will not only be a serious competitor in
around-the-buoys club events, it will also be a strong offshore
performer capable of bringing home the trophies.
The quick streamline canoe body and fine entry forward guarantee a
strong windward performance, while the powerful after sections ensure a
dominant planing ability. The fractional rig is carbon fiber with 20o
swept back spreaders. The cockpit is long and open with seating
forward, a single competition carbon wheel, through-the-boom mainsail
sheeting, and a non-overlapping jib. The keel is our state-of-the-art,
high-lift foil and T-bulb configuration, contributing to a remarkably
stable and well-balanced boat.
Below decks is a functional well thought out, light weight interior
attuned to offshore sailing and comfortable cruising. There is a
forward-facing navigation station to starboard, the galley to port, two
private cabins aft with double berths, permanent salon seating which
form two more berths, and an enclosed head.
The construction of the post-cured hull and deck structure consists of
a vacuum-bagged, wet-preg e-glass laminate over a foam core using an
epoxy resin. Carbon fiber is used selectively in areas of
loadings such as stringers, frames, and chainplates. The
blade and stock are all carbon.
