Signed in the beginning of the year, JFA Yachts has start building a 70’ Fast Cruiser named FC² 70’, please understand FC² for Finot Conq x Fast Cruiser. The aluminium hull will receive a cockpit build in glass/epoxy build following infusion method. Hull and cockpit would be gathered by gluing and screwing. Such technique is used by JFA since many years. Signed by Finot Conq, the sailing yacht is resolutely performance orientated thanks to a wide hull, a large sailing plan and a tight weight prediction. Rig is fully carbon including the standing rigging. Furlers would be mounted under deck and hydraulic winch would come from the racing range.
Draft of 4.4m is also a performance guarantee. However, the use of a revolving quill will permits to reduce the daft down to 2m and permits access to many harbour and mooring places. Interiors would be made out of light materials with Zebrano Veneer. Cockpit door gives access to a wide saloon with galley on starboard. Forward hull will offer a full beam owner cabin. Aft would receive 2 guest cabins and a crew cabin would be installed at the bow.
A tender up to 3.4m would be stored in a transom garage. Boat would be equipped with a 180Hp engine and 2 thruster one at the bow and a stern thruster to facilitate harbour manoeuvre with such double rudder installation. Launching is foreseen beginning 2018 by JFA Yachts.
