^^^^ The new Q30 is closely related to and a further development of the ^LiSA* pre-series DSS boat Q28. The Q30 combines unparalleled -~c U performance with easier handling on the water, as well as during boat preparation and transportation. The Q30 is a lake racer and daysailer for demanding yachtsmen and -women who always wanted a sailable. high-performance boat and delight in true Hull: Thanks to DSS technology, the Q30 - as opposed to conventional sports boats - is much less dependent on form stability. It therefore has a very narrow hull, similar to a modern 70-foot racing yacht. The benefits are obvious: The Q30 sails with little resistance, low wavemaking, and even heeling does little damage. This makes it extraordinarily fast when sailing close-hauled, particularly during light and medium winds - a true lake racer. Foils: Foils that guarantee stability are the crucial component of a DSS boat. The same holds true for the Q30. As opposed to the Q28, it sports two foils that can be operated independently, which greatly simplifies handling while sailing, in the harbor and during transport. The foil lift is similar to the Q28 (see reverse). They are not needed during light winds, and completely disappear into the foil cases, where they cause no resistance or handling effort. At higher winds, you can either leave both foils deployed or they can be extended and/or retracted prior to every maneuver without load. Planing: The Q30 takes its stability and planing surface from the additional lift at the foil at higher winds. This allows for upright sailing and provides the entire boat with additional lift, which decreases the resistance more than the foil "produces". The Q28 sailing experience is truly impressive. Fins: The Q30's narrow, deep keel fin with its modern shape provides sufficient size and profile for light wind while at the same time ensuring low resistance. The ballast element with its 280 kg (Q28 = 170 kg) creates an astounding level of static stability. The deep, narrow rudder is pre-balanced and conventionally mounted. It can be pulled out towards the bottom on a crane with a twisting motion. Central cockpit: The Q30 provides ample space to work - even when sailing with a crew of 5. In the cockpit, everything is neatly placed and accessible. The control panel with winch dominates the space: Here, the trim lines (Cunningham, outhaul, boom vang etc.) come together. They can be operated from either side of the boat. A "bridge" made of exposed carbon fiber, beneath which these lines lead to the foot of the mast, ensures that no running rigging can be fouled. Storage space: At the center is the storage box for the motor. On either side, every member of the crew will find personal storage space. Optionally, an additional compartment can be installed in the middle of the boat (in front of the helm). The foreship has two additional openings that provide access to the two foil and Boat 1 with retracted foils is very slender, very light, and has plenty of sail surface for light to medium winds. The foil eliminates 60% of the keel ballast. This makes the Q30 extremely fast for its length. Close-hauled and running: The superior, lively boat for our lakes. Boat 2 with extended foils provides a multi-hull feeling from a speed of 9 kts and up. In extreme cases, the foil that rights and lifts the boat allows it to sail nearly 100% faster than comparable conventional boats. Conclusion: In boat 1, the foil acts indirectly as a "stability insurance" in case the wind strengthens. In boat 2, it acts directly as an "afterburner". Front cockpit: The working area available to the foreship crew makes it significantly easier to furl and set the sails. This is where downwind sails are stored. In light wind, this space also allows for more options to trim crew weight. Outriggers: The nicely shaped outriggers or hiking out racks - optionally available in exposed carbon fiber - are an eye-catching feature of the Q30. They are pivot- mounted. When the boat is not moving, simply release the latch and flip the racks up. Their height reaches just to the main boom. The wraparound fixtures also serve to hold the trampoline, which remains attached. On the boat side, the trampoline is attached at only a few points after folding out, the same is true for the port and starboard hiking straps. Rig/Sails: The entire rig (mast, boom, gennaker boom) is made of carbon fiber. The mast has robust dimensions, but is nevertheless lightweight at just 15 to 16 kg weight for the tubing. The main boom has internal lines for the foot and the reef. Standing rigging of composite (Kevlar) can be specified optionally. Compared to a less expensive Dyform (steel cable) rigging, 7 to 8 kg weight can be saved in the entire rig. Due to its low weight, the mast can be manually stepped or unstepped by the crew using the pivoting mast foot. Self-tacking jib: As an additional user-friendly attribute, a self-tacking jib can be used where the traveller crosses the boat in front of the mast. This fixture also braces the hull. Standard lead points for overlapping head sails are integrated Sails: The basic sail configuration consists of main and head sail in addition to a gennaker. With this boat, it is crucial to choose the correct sail profiles, therefore, please schedule a consultation with us.

sailing on foils is more fun Lighter and faster – with the Dynamic Stability System (DSS) The table shows a comparison regarding the planing potential based on the displacement figure DF*, a non-dimensional value that correlates length and displacement (boat + crew). The lower the number, the less wind is required to start planing. For example: Melges 20 is the third-best boat if you look at displacement per meter. However, if we look at the DF column, it ends up in second-to-last place of the selection.. Conclusion: It is too heavy in relation to its length to start planing early. *Third root...
