How to choose this product

lifting-keel-sailboat

A lifting keel sailboat has a system for raising its keel, allowing it to sail in very shallow waters.

Applications

This type of keel is a major advantage for exploratory forays up a river or for sailing areas of the globe where shallow water is prevalent, as in the Bahamas.

Technologies

These keels contain lead or other ballast. If not, they are known as centerboards. Thus, the boat will be self-righting only when the keel is down. This means the vessel should not be sailed with the keel raised because its center of gravity is too high for stability. It may proceed under power with its keel up for entering or leaving port or an anchorage, or for traveling inland waterways.

These keels can be pivoting or slide up and down within a trunk. The operating system may use hydraulics, pneumatic power, a worm gear, a rack or an electric or manual winch.

Advantages

- Shallow-water access with reduced draft
- Good keel-down upwind performance

Disadvantages

- Requires heavy, complex machinery
- Keel trunk is bulky
- Little stability when the keel is up
