The sailboats, the designs and the sailings of Christian Lanctot


My Sailboat Designs


My sailboat designs:

In 1998 I purchased this nice piece of sailboat design software called Proline. Since then, when the winter hit hard, I design my dream boats. It is always the same kind and the same concept. I want a fast sailboat that I can sail with 2 people with little effort possible. I like waterline speed so I go for long, light and slippery easy driven hull that need no big sail plan. Remember I sail everyday and do not have crew available all the time. So I must be able to control the boat alone up to 30 knots.

Design Proto 2008 SuperSolo

proto 2008 half chineA year passed by and I couldn't help but to tweak a little Proto 2007. It is still the same boat with minor change. If I was to start right now and commit in cutting the mold stations, I will do the half chine version. Yes I played with 4 different versions. But you can see all that clicking the links.

Design Proto 2007. SuperSolo

p286.5-1 This is my latest design, the one I would built if I had to do it right now. And yes I already have a name for it: SuperSolo

It is based on  the same design box than my Proto 2001 design and is a refinement of it.
