The 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 high loadings such as stringers, frames, and chainplates. The rudder blade and stock are all carbon.
