The SL33 has been designed, engineered and built to:
- Be the fastest boat under 40 feet
- Capture trophies at all major open regattas worldwide
- Be the boat of choice for one-design multihull fleet and match racing
- Be the perfect training platform for the AC teams
Our objective is to develop an international one-design Class, which promotes high level and entertaining racing. We will ensure that all hull platforms are as identical as possible in terms of construction, shape of hull and appendages, weight distribution and performance. As a developmental one-design Class, deck layout and equipment, sail and wing plan must comply with Class measurement rules.
“The concept is very similar to that of the new America’s Cup 72. It must be sailed across all wind ranges and be exciting to sail in harbors and lakes where light winds are often encountered and regattas are often staged. The boat can be sailed shorthanded, yet it is the ideal platform for three or four sailors,” said Andreas Labek, founder of SL Performance Race Boats GmbH.
The boat is targeted at sailors familiar with high performance one-design monohull and multihull racing. Singlehanded and double-handed sailors will hone their teamwork by sailing with larger crews and with sail plans that produce adrenaline pumping power and speed.
The boat is made of light-weight, exotic materials that provide strength and stiffness. Fold up carbon fiber racks have been incorporated to make the SL33 easy to maneuver in tight harbors.
Packing, transporting and assembling the SL33 is so easy that teams will prefer sailing the SL33 at their favorite regattas and sailing venues over other boats.
