Characteristics

With a displacement of 4,400 kg, Lucifera is a decidedly lightweight craft: the hull profile – based on the WOR 60 - is as taut as the diagonals; depth is contained, with the transom low on the water and a maximum beam of 60% of the hull and as a result, a centre of volume that is set rather far back. The hull is equipped with 600 kg side ballast and a centreboard with end bulb that makes it possible to vary draught from 2.2 to 3 metres and this way, to guarantee a high degree of stability together with significant versatility when it comes to cruising. The lightweight hull is made using a composite construction of unidirectional glass fibres and epoxy resin applied under vacuum and post-cured at 70°C, to a core in Termanto with variable density. The same technology is used for the interiors with the addition – also under vacuum and via bonding – of mahogany finishes.

 

The sail plan, which is clearly inspired by regatta plans, has a carbon mast with wide, angled spreaders, a full-batten main of large dimensions, a rollable genoa with very low overlap, removable fore mast and mast headed gennaker with retracting bowsprit. The fact that volumes are generally set back in the vessel can also be seen on the deck, which features a large cockpit with double wheel for the helm, located at the end of the stern so as to make the most of interior volumes, keeping the cockpit where the anchor can be manoeuvred easily. All rig is sent to the cockpit. The deckhouse has four hatches, a bow hatch and four portholes to guarantee excellent light. The division of the interior revolves around the centreboard step which, thanks to a maximum beam of 4.20 m, does not take up space – on the contrary, it contributes by acting as a partition between the bow area with table and sofas, and the stern entrance with doors through to the cabins, galley and course plotting table.
