Some of our latest projects:
CQS – 100ft Bakewell -White Super Maxi
CQS is the result of a massive refit of the previously 90ft yacht Nicorette. The technical innovations that have been incorporated push the limits of thepresent yacht design. CQS features a radical new bow shape and forward section, and lateral “wings” to support the much more powerful new rig. The maximum width is then carried all the way to the transom to widen the sheeting angles and maximize the use of the crew weight for stability.
In addition to the canting keel, CQS has a DSS aqua foil system, which uses a sliding board that runs across the boat for one side to the other, and protrudes from the hull just below the waterline. The board is deployed on the leeward, or downwind, side of the boat to give lift and added stability. The hull, in effect, becomes like an aeroplane with one wing.
Evolution sails is proud to have been actively part of the boat development and have supplied all the sail inventory.
