10r – Sonix
Designed by John Taylor
LOA 1680mm Beam 200mm Displacement 5.85 – 6.0kgs
SONIX represents our introduction into this class. The hull is shaped in such a manner, the waterline extend very quickly to its maximum permissible length. Therefore, SONIX will achieve maximum sailing speed at the earliest opportunity.
A hull feature of SONIX, which incorporates a chine running along the entire length of the hull, this helps to grip the water which gives this design excellent pointing ability whilst sailing to windward. The deck design is shaped so that the airflow is directed to the sails. Additionally, a mast well is incorporated within the mid-sections of the deck, to allow the rig to remain low and compact, aiding to maximum rig efficiency when sailing.
In 2019, development continued with the SONIX design. A new and stiffer fin created by David Creed was used which improved the sailing performance of SONIX immediately. Small changes to the rig were also incorporated and now the benefits of these alterations make this design a very competitive package. SONIX featured in the 2019 Italian Championships at Lake Garda in September, finishing 9th from 20 boats. This result together with the recent qualification for the class World Championships at West Kirby in 2020, shows the amount of improvement made from the SONIX since its launch.
Radio Pot Assembly
The RMG winch and batteries are all encompassed within the radio pot. This ensures most of the weight is concentrated in one area. This system is used in most of our yachts.
Sonix Hull Kits FROM £1350
The hull kit will come in the form of a part completed yacht, ready for the installation of the rig and radio equipment. The hulls are constructed using Carbon / Kevlar as an inner layer with carbon on the outer. Moulding is done using the vacuum bag technique. This type of construction method forms a light but robust hull. The hull, deck, rudder, fin box and other internal parts, including the bumper are all fitted to the hull. Deck fittings are installed, the standard length keel, ballast and rudder are also painted and included. A full sheeting line fed through the pulleys is installed with plenty of cord for you to attach to the booms. Your winch and rudder servo can be installed if you supply them. A full or standard length fins can be ordered to suit your sailing venue.
