New Carbon Rocket made in Dubai

Fast at low costs: AEOLOS P30, the new winning concept for short handed sailing 

After 9 months of intensive development the first boat of the a new yacht brand AEOLOS is ready for production. The AEOLPS P30 (P stands for performance) is optimized for single and double hand sailing and works in a wide range of offshore conditions up to category A. 

The CFD analysis shows very fast data in typical 14 knots of wind, especially for a 30 foot boat:

Upwind speed: 7.15 kts and TWA 40°

Downwind speed 11.43 kts at TWA 140°

Hans Genthe, lifetime sailor with an impressive track of race wins, developed the design in Dubai during the lockdown, based on his wins with his Farr280 in the Silverrudder 2018/2019 and the experiences made in the Baltic 500 race. He has this carbon rocket is radically optimized for easy handling and fast rejuvenation at sea. Additional to that, hundreds of hours CFD and rating optimization went in this boat, internationally recognized experts like Hannes Rentsch and Max Gurgel are in the developing team.

Now the production is starting at Eaton Marine in Dubai. With Mike Eaton AEOLOS found a partner who understands to produce a fast racing yacht and brings in a lot of passion, too. „It´s a great project which follows on the track the successful Seaquest range.“ Mike Eaton is very exited to start. “It´s a perfect addition to our range of performance blue water cruising catamarans“.

This boat is not only a fast carbon boat, it´s also a concept for short handed sailing at low costs. Hans Genthe went through the whole racing process and optimized every step. „Successful sailing is not only about buying a fast boat. It needs a lot more.“ Hans Genthe has done a lot of sailing campaigns: „Easy transport and launching, long lasting sails, low maintenance costs and a lot more keeps cost down and you can focus on what leads to success: Training and racing. With this boat you are increasing your sailing time a lot. And that means you know your boat better und you will be faster. It´s just as simple as this.“

Due to the mast laying device and the tilt slip trailer the boat can be launched by a single person without a crane. The interior is very different from the usual concepts, but it is offering sleeping, eating and further important “personal business” during rough conditions.

The numbers of the boat are extreme: With 9,14m length the boat weights only 1.55t (empty but rigged) and is carrying more than 800kg ballast on a 2,3m long retractable keel. That means a ballast ratio more than 50% (800kg). Compared to that power/potential the ORC measurement numbers are very good. 

First boats are ordered, but further boats can be delivered in the middle of the year.
