An Early Test Model


  Easier to sail than a traditional rig. One control line for both sails. Self-tacking and          self-tending with just a turn of the tiller or wheel. The sails can be furled and reefed        similar to a traditional rig.

        Improved Performance

  End plates generate more power. Self tacking jib makes for fast tacking and controlled    gybing. This power is balanced and the sheet load is reduced by %50. The low center        of  effort and the reduced height of the mast creates less heeling moment and                    reduces   the need for deep draft and heavy ballast.

        Less Maintenance

  The BALANCED RIGTM requires less rigging, sails and deck gear – reducing                          maintenance and downtime for repairs.

  The BALANCED RIGTM is balanced, reducing force loads on the sails and rigging, and        lightening the load on the single control sheet. This makes for a safer, more reliable        and more enjoyable sailing experience.The free-standing BALANCED RIGTM means            that  there is no standing rigging to fatigue or fail.


  The BALANCED RIGTM also allows excellent forward and all-round visibility under sail    for maneuvering, navigation, safety, and sailing enjoyment. The versatility of the              BALANCED RIGTM allows a variety of applications from small performance sailors to      around-the-world racers, mega yachts and cruise ships

    Free-Standing, Rotating Rig         Self-Tacking, Self-Vanging, Self-Tending    •   50% Less Boom Load for the Total Rig    • 
 •   End Plates Create more Sail Power & Control     •    Revolutionary 100% Roller Furling or Hands & Slides may be Used    • 
•   Simplified Boat Construction Such As Chainplates, Headstay, & Backstay Attachment Points Not Needed
