The hull is designed for fast and controlled sailing, and the deck layout is perfect for short-handed sailing and for efficient use of all the space.
The Zephyr is a completely new type of sailing vessel. The Zephyr is a three person small narrow 15ft light-weight trimaran dinghy. Most conventional sailing boats have either a ballast keel or multiple hulls for stability. Even dinghies need an athletic crew to keep the dinghy upright. Sail area is limited to the stability of the hull limiting the performance of the vessel. The Zephyr has a large wing that enables it to sail well in light airs. In heavy airs the wing can be lowered moving to leeward whilst tipping to windward eliminating the heeling moment. All the wind force is generating lift and speed all while the crew is simply sitting facing forward.
The HH55 was designed for the serious sailor, those individuals who desire a dual purpose yacht capable of cruising to the remote corners of the planet and equally comfortable lining up against the fastest boats in the Offshore Multihull fleet. Utopia is equipped with dual aft helm stations, ensuring the helmsman has complete command at all times. A comprehensive rigging and sail package combine with modern hull shapes, curved daggerboards and aggressive weight savings, making Utopia the most powerful HH55 to-date. Launched in Xiamen in June, Utopia arrived in the US just last month, and will make her debut at the Annapolis Boat Show.

Her hull shape is an evolution of tried and true concepts proven to deliver great stability and high interior volume while maintaining comforting manners throughout a wide range of sailing conditions. Tartan 395 is an evolution of the very successful Tartan 3700 (over 170 boats built). Her aft cabin has been massaged into a size that really makes it an equal to the forward cabin. The main cabin has been nuanced to be even safer at sea than her predecessors. Her rig is a result of continuous testing and will move Tartan 395 at speed in the lightest winds, yet be flexible enough to allow easy management in higher wind ranges. Nearly sixty years of building, then modifying, then taking notes, then building new models has allowed Tartan Yachts to build some of the best boats on the oceans, rivers, and lakes of the world.

They reduce drift and improve the righting moment without increasing movement, thus improving overall performance. Her keel consists of a low-drag, deep straight blade, and her sail plan features a square-top mainsail, genoa, jib, masthead spinnaker and small gennaker – all of which can be sailed single-handed.
