The new Q30 is closely related to and a further development of the
pre-series DSS boat Q28. The Q30 combines unparalleled
performance with easier handling on the water, as well as during
boat preparation and transportation.
The Q30 is a lake racer and daysailer for demanding yachtsmen and -women
who always wanted a sailable, high-performance boat and delight in true
Hull: Thanks to DSS technology, the Q30 - as opposed to conventional sports boats -is much less dependent on form stability. It therefore has a very narrow hull, similar to a modern 70-foot racing yacht. The benefits are obvious: The Q30 sails with little resistance, low wavemaking, and even heeling does little damage. This makes it
extraordinarily fast when sailing close-hauled, particularly during light and medium winds - a true lake racer.
Foils: Foils that guarantee stability are the crucial component of a DSS boat. The same holds true for the Q30. As opposed to the Q28, it sports two foils that can be operated independently, which greatly simplifies handling while sailing, in the harbor and during transport. The foil lift is similar to the Q28 (see reverse). They are not needed during light winds, and completely disappear into the foil cases, where they cause no resistance or handling effort. At higher winds, you can either leave both foils deployed or they can be extended and/or retracted prior to every maneuver without load.
