Boulogne Conception Marine is proud to present the main changes made to the Cirrus R.
For the last 6 years, we have continuously been developing and testing new ideas on the water in a constant effort to keep our boats on top of the game. This year we are releasing the Cirrus R2, our new platform designed for F18 racing as well as full foiling adventures.
The R2 development program has been centred on increased performance through hull optimisation and rig stability improvement, as well as opening the sailing scope to wider opportunities.
Our industrial design studio has been focusing its efforts on hull and rudder blades evolution in order to increase the boat performance, especially in light winds, as well as further increasing her down wind speed.
The front deck lateral angle has been adjusted to further reduce the risk of pitch polling. The overall volume remains the same as the Cirrus R, but its distribution has been modified at the bow and stern, leading to significant improvements in the stability of the overall platform as well as the Rig. Also, the shape of the first third of the below the water line is now slimmer and more rounded.
Cleaner water exit at the Stern are having a significant impact on drag reduction.
Lastly, the final main design evolution focused on the rudder profile in order to reduce drag and increase lift, resulting in better upwind tracking, increased helming control and responsiveness.
Made in « Boulogne Conception Marine », France! The boat design and building process have been totally re-thought in order to anticipate the forecasted evolution of the boat usage towards a flying program resulting in specific structural constraints. Specific emphasis has been given to the stern and dagger board casing structures. The bulk heads have been positioned in line with the main loads in order to increase the boat stiffness and its longevity. Lastly, careful attention has been given to the composite material selection and the building process choices.
Regarding the dagger board casing, we developed a modular system allowing ease of repair in a cost-effective way in case of a violent crash. Moreover, they have been designed in order to either fit an F18 or a specific foiling kit.
Deck design and ease of assembly We built on the experience of our team of sailors to focus our attention on three main themes: ➢ Deck hardware standardisation to the finest level of detail ➢ Fast assembly: a new trampoline has been designed to facilitate the ropes passing through whilst allowing to keep all ropes in position when disassembling the platform. ➢ Cleaner deck design for improved sailing comfort, including a dagger board up/down system which can be controlled from the windward Side.
Overall, the deck hardware has been selected carefully, and special attention given to each part, never compromising on quality. (Wichard, Ronstan, Harken, Karver, Allen, Liros, Blue Wave...).
Set of sails Specifically developed by Simon Northrop. An obvious choice for the Cirrus R2 given its performance, proven results and versatility.
In a nutshell ...
For its 20th anniversary, BCM is proud to present a Cirrus F18 which has been developed with extreme attention to details, from the design choices to the building process and hardware.
We are currently pursuing the development of our foiling kit for which the Cirrus R2 has been specifically conceived in order to offer the widest and most sensational sailing program.
The Cirrus saga continues... Watch the space for an upcoming surprise... on three hulls!
20 years after the first Cirrus catamaran, Cirrus shows up in North America with the New F18 Cirrus R2.
Cirrus catamarans are the choice of the best sailors in the world! Design, quality, durability, performance, innovation, are the focus of Boulogne Conception Marine! This is the Made in France.
