Designed with short handed sailing in mind this is the fun boat the owner wanted for daysailing. Fast and maneuverable, “Stellafilante” (Shooting Star) can leave the mooring and be sailing within 5 minutes. Built at Cantiere Galetti of Peschiera del Garda on a laminated wooden plug, the construction is a vacuum consolidated carbon fibre/epoxy foam sandwich structure. The NC machined very thin steel blade fin keel and lead bulb, the whole fixed to a complex carbon structure and the hydraulic system capable of handling all sailing maneuvres are some of the very sofisticated technical solutions incorporated into this fascinating yacht. Beautiful to look at with a very low freeboard, teak decks and aft open cockpit for maximum ease of access when moored, “ Stellafilante” is also very fast under sail, even in light winds, mainly due to it’s very long and narrow waterline and a powerful main with an impressive, America’s Cup style roach. Working with Designer, Owner and Yard, Trimarine’s technical coordination roll developed from an early stage of the project before the builder had been chosen and finished with the registration documents. Final judgement: “Rarely have we done sailing tests with such a pleasant and exciting yacht!”
