Ganzuria

About

Ganzuria is a project developed in conjunction with the Cossutti yacht design firm. It was created in the wake of the success achieved, in the last few years, by “fast cruisers,” with their excellent performance, eye-catching style with none of the extreme constraints imposed by IMS rating and on average, longer than 43 feet. With Ganzuria 34’, it has been possible to transfer these design prerogatives to a smaller (and cheaper) craft.

Characteristics

The essential lines of the project are for a hull with a bold yet balanced design and a planing but “soft” bottom that will not suffer problems of being bow heavy when sailing close to the wind, as often happens to boats with unbalanced volumes. Depending on use or personal preferences and budget, there are three different types using glass, carbon or pre-impregnated carbon, always with epoxy resin and over a core in differentiated density PVC, obviously vacuum applied and oven baked. The sail plan offers a choice of carbon mast with two angled spreaders in the bulwark without backstays but with just two small and non-structural flying rigs, which are useful when using “code zero” drifters or asymmetrical gennaker on the masthead, with bow tack or bowsprit. The 28° angled spreaders mean it is possible to fit jibs for up to 120% cover, making the most of the advantages of smaller bow sails without the disadvantages of jibs at 100% in IMS style, which are so critical to use in light wind conditions.

 

The alternative is a wing mast with a large bulwark spreader, for ultra-efficiency in aerodynamic terms, developed on boats from 22 to 70 feet (Cometa, Beauceant, Vismara 70’). The interiors envisage just one double cabin in the bow; the bunks under the cockpit, which are comfortable when the boat is moored, have been designed for use even under sail, even with the boat listing, as are the two convertible berths in the dinette. The choice not to use a double cabin under the cockpit has left room to store a self-inflating raft that can be accessed from the cockpit. A large bathroom and linear galley take up the back part of the deckhouse, to the sides of the entrance. The composite interiors are painted in customised colours, leaving some parts in carbon/kevlar exposed. Another interesting feature, above all for the Adriatic, is the possibility for the hydraulic moving centreboard, with draft of 2.70-1.50m, as an alternative to the fixed keel with 2.10 special steel blade and appendages optimised using ICAD.
