6M – Seabird – New for 2021
Designed By Dave Hollom
LOA – 1600mm Beam – 265mm Displacement – 11.4Kgs.
Taking a fresh look at the 6m class, Dave Hollom designed ‘Seabird‘ to be slightly lighter than the existing designs and by pushing the envelope of certain parameters, she is able to achieve a similar sail area to her heavier fellow 6m’s. ‘Seabird‘ is constructed with a mix of 2 layers of carbon/kevlar cloth, then reinforcement carbon strips are applied in other areas using female moulds. The fin is built into the hull, with the lead ballast detachable from the fin by a stainless steel rod. The rudder and lead ballast can be painted in the same colour as the hull, or finished to our standard dark grey option. ‘Seabird‘ can be ordered using the standard colour options, or you can utilise the RAL or BS colour systems, as all hulls are sprayed with 2 pack.
Radio Pot Assembly – Click for PDF download the pot and sheeting guide.
‘Seabird’ is configured to support the RMG sail winch inside the large radio pot, utilising a digitally printed mounting system. The rudder servo is installed outside the pot, in a separate tray to the rear. Additionally when using an RMG, we recommend using a ‘left hand’ 32mm self tensioning drum, easy to set up and very reliable.
The basic hull option comes in the form of a part completed yacht, ready for the installation of the rig and radio equipment.
Alternatively a fully finished ‘Ready to Sail‘ yacht can be purchased, just needing your TX, Rx and batteries.
