IOM Rubix

IOM – Rubix

Designed by John Taylor

LOA 1000mm   Beam 185mm    Minimum Displacement 4kgs

RUBIX has been given a significant upgrade for 2021. New foils are now part of the kit which keeps this design very competitive in comparison to the latest class designs. The main feature of RUBIX is the hard chine that runs from the transom, along the hull line to the bow. The shape of the hull, allows the waterline length to extend quickly as the yacht heels. RUBIX has improved downwind performance because of the fuller sections within the forward part of the canoe body. In addition, we have included the flared bow which assists the hull’s buoyancy and therefore the yacht is less prone to ‘Nose Diving’, during the downwind leg of the course. The ‘RUBIX‘ best performances have come in the medium to strong wind conditions. Ideally suited to open water venues, this yacht has bags of power at the top end of each rig.

Radio Pot AssemblyClick for PDF download to pot and sheeting guide.
Rubix can be configured to support the RMG and other types of sail winches inside the large radio pot utilising a digitally printed mounting system for the radio plate. The rudder servo is installed outside the pot in a 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.

Hull Kit and other pricing options.
The hull kit will come in the form of a part completed yacht, ready for the installation of the rig and radio equipment. Or as a fully complete yacht including rigs, winch and servo, where you’ll just need Tx, Rx and batteries.
