Cruising sailboat (carbon mast)
- 13,71m 45' 0"
Haka 137 is the latest development of the famous Apocalypse, which has done so many ocean crossings.
This is a design for a very interesting sailing program: Passage making in the Roaring Forties.
She is obviously a light displacement of moderate proportions. Balance under sail to occasionally 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 yet rugged and extremely easy to handle. Its yankee furls well. The staysail will be extremely useful to beat in rough weather. A large choice of light sails is available to get the best speed 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 definitely planned for deep sea sailing with proper quarter berth, U-shaped galley, full size chart table. Good view outside is allowed by the short coach-roof.
The deck layout is optimised for easy handling and the cockpit is well sheltered for heavy weather.
