Maestro 40 info
When the development of Maestro 40
started with Eivind Still as
designer we agreed on the following main characteristics for the new boat.
The boat should be:
- Easy to sail
- Modern both in lines and equipment
How has this been accomplished in Maestro 40?
downwind sailing the boat can be equipped with gennakers ranging from
68 to124 m2. The gennakers are tacked from the bow 12 cm
forward of the forestay fitting. If requested the boat can also be
fitted with a spinnaker pole and a 122 m2 spinnaker
cockpit has been ergonomically designed to provide comfortable seats
and backrests. Halyards and other sail handling lines are led under
the cabin roof to winches close to the helmsman. In this way the
helmsman can in most situations handle the boat alone.
achieve lightness and strength in hull and deck a new laminating
technique based on vacuum injection will be utilized. Bulkheads,
cabinet fronts and doors are no more made in heavy plywood but
vacuum-bagged from a light core covered on both sides by fiberglass
and wood veneers
