Aeolos P30 Trailerable for Australia

Post by Jon »

Just saw this over lunch break, I have no affiliation. Cut and paste from two sites.

https://www.aeoloscomposites.com/aeolos-p30-racer

G Force in Brisbane is the local dealer for Aeolos Composites P30, first boat arriving soon and advertised as available for test sailing. G Force and Aeolos are working on a trailer which will fit the very 'special' rules in Australia.
Screenshot_20210408-124130_DuckDuckGo.jpg
The AEOLOS Performance 30" (P30) is a long lasting fast allround hull design for a very nice price. Ideal for short and medium distance racing and typical Baltic Sea and Solent conditions - windspeeds 12-14 knots average. The CFD calculations proofed that a single rudder and a close eye on wetted surface is fast under this conditions. This boat don´t follow marketing driven design or rating trends. Sure, the rating issues is important and is very well optimized, but not on the cost of hull performance. The ORC rule become better and better, and it means producing waste if you produce a rule breaker.

- simple, reliable, light
- quick to assemble (without crane), easy to transport
- single/double hand (OSR2) and inshore racing with six
- CE-Norm Category B (offshore), upgrade to A with additional equipment possible

- length: 9,14m
- width: 2,91m
- 1.55t empty but rigged boat without sails and motor
- 1,980t double hand full equipped for 3 days sailing with 160kg Crew
- ballast ratio: more than 50% (800kg)
- draft: 2,3m - 0,5m

By looking at every little detail, success grows.

We optimized the boat with several teams in following areas:

- Speed: Hull Design for 12-14 knots of wind and short and medium distance racing.

- Rating optimization: We carefully optimized for ORC without loss of real speed.

- Weight/safety: We developed a strong, reliable yacht at low weight for Cat A.

- Handling: We added a lof of handling advantages which no influence on the rating but on the speed.

- Recreation: We put our focus on recreation while sailing, especially in bad weather.

- Transport: We reduced campaign costs by easy transport and short assembling time without need of a crane.

- Production: The price for the basic boat is incredible for a full carbon rocket ... ask for the sales docs.

- Sales & Service: We care about our customers and strive for a long and good relationship.

So many nice details. The lateral pole in line with the mast hinge for secure mast raising. The rudder cassette and fold up prodder for transport are very interesting and I haven't seen anything like the rudder. With 2.3m bulb and that rudder you would have to be careful with the Moreton Bay sandbars on the test sail.

First time I have seen a carbon heads at the base of the Companionway. Designed for a better ride in heavy seas.

I hope the two handed Olympic class produces more boats such as this and with a trickle down for the more budget constrained.

I thought I saw somewhere it was about $130000Aud
Pretty cheap for a carbon fibre 30ft boat

30ft Trimaran racer cruisers in aus are thin on ground due to cost and lack of space, this appeals to same market....

Perhaps more affordable, but bet trailer is 25k+

It appears in the sales documentation that it can be made CAT 1 race compliant. Potentially this boat could enter S2H. It looks like a lot more fun than travelling down to Hobart than for example an old Jarkan 30.

If viewed from the perspective it is an off shore race boat for two, then for that market it appears competitively priced.

I'm probably going to wait until they get the P45 sorted.

You got me lol with that one.

How much would a 30' tri need to be sailaway to be competitive/appealing ?

The basic materials for the avalon 9 are about 10k in foam eglass. Should be about a ton.
