A13 has been designed with pure IRC racing in mind!
This boat has been designed as a pure IRC 43′ inshore and offshore racer.
However, having given the design some more thought the designers Joubert- Nivelt and Fruschi along with Archambault have designed 4 versions of the brand new A13 ….
The A13 Cruiser, The A13 IRC comfort racer, The A13 IRC racer and the out and out stripped down A13 Racer.
Whatever your preference the A13 has the flexibility in the design to suit your needs and she looks good too. So the A13 basic designs consist of: 6.3 to 6.7 T, allowing planning at 60° from 12 Kts wind and at 120° from 15 Kts wind. IRC TCC between 1.16 and 1.18. Open cockpit with tiller or double wheels with seats and protection for offshore racing. Flush deck in front of the mast for easy maneuvering. Carbon mast, boom. Up to date sail trimming with direct mainsail sheet and transverse jib traveler. Symmetric or (and) asymmetric spinnaker.
Racing interior with volume for offshore racing. Twin navigation seats allowing comfortable and efficient windward position for the navigator. Efficient windward position for 6 crew inside.
