BEOWULF, is the result of over 20 years of continuous design evolution, all of which has been aimed at one goal – producing the safest, most efficient and comfortable cruising yachts afloat.
BEOWULF was designed to be sailed by a couple without the need of extra crew. She is a remarkably stiff, comfortable and a fast passage maker. In moderate trades, with the wind from a close to broad reach, she will easily and comfortably average 300 miles per day. She is designed to travel 230 - 300 miles per day under sail. Typically, the boat moves at 85% - 95% of the wind speed with the small jib, main and mizzen. She has a simple, easy to use salt water ballast system which reduces heel by six to eight degrees and typically increases speed ten to fifteen percent.
This vessel is fully fitted for extensive offshore work, has been shaken down and fine tuned, and is ready to head around the world after topping off her tanks and visiting the local market. The systems are functional, easy to use and require minimal maintenance. The interior is exquisitely executed by one of the finest boat builders world-wide for this size yacht, to the very highest standards and must be seen to be appreciated.
