Dennis Hennevanger on the new Saffier Sc 6.50 Cruise

We took our time to design her. The old 6.50 has quite a legacy in Holland as being a very seaworthy boat and we certainly wanted to keep that intact.

The hull is one aspect of her seaworthiness and keeping the righting moment the same was important. With the new keel shape, and these days being able to put the centre of gravity much lower in the keel, we ended up with 20% less weight in the keel with an even better righting moment.

Along with the new rudder and new rig she has much more performance, especially going upwind.

The rigg has a large mainsail and a self-tacking jib. Furthermore she can easily be fitted out with a furling code zero sail. This provides a very effective way of getting more sail area downwind or on a reach and the handling is as simple as a furling jib.

With the new deck and cockpit there is much more space and the seating is much more comfortable; she is also very easy for one person to control and sail alone sitting at the helm, which is a real benefit.

What I particularly like are the small, almost hidden details, such as integrated cup holders and boxes to store your halyards and control lines.
Inside there is also considerable improvement. A lot of space has been created and access is very easy.

The design will appeal to a broad range of people who are looking for a simple-to-sail open yacht, with beautiful lines and all the comfort and performance you expect from a modern daysailer.
