Happy to present to you the NEW SB4 all-Carbon Sportsboat for IRC/ORC racing Cat 4 or 5.
The well-established sistership SB20 is a well organised class with their own one-design races. People were asking us, when they want to do other races for instance during the week or for handicap events if the SB20 was suitable.
In particular, this Swiss client, now owner of the first SB4 Carbon, who sails in an area where there are not many SB20’s, tasked us to modify the SB20 design with IRC/ORC ability.
We started discussing what we should do and we got more and more enthusiastic to make a full carbon-fibre boat that would be quite different to standard SB20. This new model for Sportsboatworld, the SB4 is built fully in carbon including a carbon rig from AG+ in France, furling forestay, twin backstays with a new modern square head mainsail. Lifelines can be supplied if anyone wants to enter a CAT 4 race.
The complete boat weighs only 545 kgs including the 300 kg bulb keel inherited from the standard much heavier SB20. The package will be very competitively priced against the usual ORC competition. This gives the SB4 Carbon electric performance and a lot of fun to sail.
I’m hoping that your readers would be interested in this new racing boat.
