ECLIPSE with Two helicopters, a submarine and 114 suites (with balconies) It's A designed and equiped to sail to the Antarctic. Farr Yacht Design has released the first 3D renderings of the new Super 12 yachts that will be sailed in the San Francisco Yacht Racing Challenge beginning in July 2017 on San Francisco Bay.
Britton Ward, the lead designer of the Super 12s, said the renderings are a big step in the process leading to the final design.
Ward said Tuesday that the entire staff in Annapolis, Maryland, is working on the project so tooling production can begin in May. The Super 12s are a modernized, one-design version of the venerable 12 Meters that were used in the America's Cup from 1958-1987. The San Francisco Yacht Racing Challenge, also known as the Super 12 Cup, was founded by former America's Cup executive Tom Ehman. The Fizes Valley and the adjacent tributaries, stretch over 460 kilometers in Transilvania( an historic Principality, once independent, which is currently within the North West of Romania).
The District includes nearly two dozen traditional farming villages and is currently under the joint administration of two NGO's - Eco Transilvania and Ecochoice - A under the terms of a five-year contract with the Romanian Ministry of the Environment.
When you set up aA CHAPSA transfer you will normally need to visit a branch of your bank and take your bank card and a form of identification such as your driving licence. Before making aA CHAPSA payment it is worthwhile checking your banka€™s value limit for sending a Faster Payment as potentially payments of up to A?100,000 can be sent via this payment system and if this system is an option it is likely to be cheaper or even free.
Consumer protection providing immediate refund will apply if you are an innocent victim of fraud a€“ your claim needs to be made within the 13 months of fraudulent transaction leaving your account.
CHAPSA payments can be sent to most UK bank accounts and will arrive and can be drawn on the same day providing the funds are released before 3pm. Newly qualified yacht engineers can expect $19 to $20 an hour in South Florida and there just aren't enough of them. Launched seven years ago in a hangar-like building near Florida's Turnpike in Miramar, Broward College's marine program aims to prepare students to handle mechanical and electrical needs on yachts a€” everything from engines to air conditioning systems, electric generators to desalinization units.
The Marine Industries Association of South Florida pushed for the program, and Broward College increasingly collaborates with association members and other businesses to place students in jobs.
In all, the marine industry a€” including yachts and other craft and businesses from manufacturing to sales and service a€” supports more than 136,000 jobs in South Florida, mainly in Broward.
Yacht technicians are just a tiny fraction of that total, which also includes carpenters, captains, salespeople and others.
Indeed, demand for yacht technicians is so strong that the Broward College program, with 55 students enrolled, is nearing capacity in Miramar. Alex Thomson (40) and Pepe Ribes (43) A were swapping the jib top for the Headsail and while neither was in place all the stress went on one forestay causing the main steel pin in the the drum to shear.
Two years after a putsch against the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) a new five-year strategic plan has put the association on a new tack, reports The Irish Times. If nothing else the blueprint serves as written confirmation the ISA no longer sees itself purely in a a€?national governing bodya€? role but in the same boat as the clubs and classes it was set up to serve.
The plan is based on the views that were put to a a€?Strategic Review Groupa€? in 2013 that assessed how the association needed to adjust to better serve the sport.
Its author Neil Murphy, a former ISA president, says the underlying principle is moving from a a€?governance approacha€? to one of the principal stakeholders in the sport a€?working together with a goal of encouraging and developing participationa€?. Ita€™s still just a plan on paper a€“ not yet on water a€“ and for this master plan to work it must first get the buy-in of a 17,000-plus strong sailing community, spread across a network of clubs on lakes, rivers and around the coast. Ita€™s a major step forward on previous strategic plans but Murphy warns a€?it can only work if there is a joint commitment between the clubs and the associationa€?.
Irish sailing publication afloat.ie reports, a€?This blueprint looks like a positive step forward not least because it makes an attempt to implement measurable targets for the good of grassa€“roots sailors.

Taiwan International Boat Show Kicks off with 60 luxury yachts to celebrate the first 60 years of yacht building in Taiwan. Tens of thousands of visitors visited this grand show that features 168 foreign and domestic exhibitors.
The largest yacht at the show was the RP110 model designed by Horizon Yachts, the fifth-largest custom luxury yacht builder in the world, which is also a winner of the 2014 Taiwan Excellence Awards.
Meanwhile, Kha Shing Enterprises presented its latest Monte Fino CAT 45 Sports Fish model, with ample space for fishing and recreation that's specially designed for fishing fans or taking buddies on fishing voyages.
Taiwan yacht builders have returned from all over the world for this first boat show that's packed with prestigious international guests. Taiwan yacht parts and components suppliers have also attracted the interest of many international shipbuilding companies. In addition to overseas visitors, the Boat Show has also attracted visitor registration of executives from over 500 well-known companies in Taiwan.

A Yachtsmen from 23 countries came together to put their all in thrillingly close competition all enhanced by the glorious Carribean sunshine andlocal festive atmosphere which was rocking for five days and nights! A luxury yacht is lifted from the water in Kaohsiung Harbor and transported to the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center in preparation for the launch of the Taiwan International Boat Show, May 2. Taiwan's first international boat show, will exhibit 60 boats with a combined market value of NT$7 billion (US$233 million) starting May 8.
The vessel was built by the Horizon Group, the leading Taiwan-based luxury yacht builder and the only Asian company among the top 10 brands of the global luxury yacht market. The show will provide an exceptional opportunity for visitors to see various yachts, either at sea from a ferry or by purchasing tickets to enter the indoor exhibition center, Kaohsiung Marine Bureau director Lai Jui-lung said. According to a report carried in the Financial Times last July, Taiwan overtook Germany to become the world's sixth-largest yachtmaker, yet sales are much lower than before the 2008 financial crisis. Most of the world's top yacht makers capitalize on the fact that they are European by trading on their nations' famous histories in seafaring and design, however, the Financial Times quoted a market research firm as saying that Taiwanese boat builders have seen their reputations improve over time.
The four-day Taiwan International Boat Show is one of just three luxury yacht shows that are exhibited indoors, along with Boot Dusseldorf and the Genoa International Boat Show, according to Chuang Ming-liao, a board member of the Taiwan Yacht Industry Association.
The annual three day event, which is organised by Jersey Marinas on behalf of Ports of Jersey regularly attracts in excess of 30,000 visitors over the weekend and is the largest free-entry event in the Channel Islands and enjoyed not only by the Islanda€™s large boating community but residents and visitors alike. Although the event has grown in size and popularity since those early days our commitment to support and promote Jerseya€™s valuable marine leisure industry has never waived and remains as strong as ever. RYA is sponsoring "Push the Boat Out", a National Weekend of sailing and windsurfing with open days across the land. A a€?Push the Boat Outa€™ will take place over the weekend of 17-18 May and will see sailing clubs across the country holding open days and inviting those who live locally to come and a€?have a goa€™ at sailing and windsurfing with an experienced sailor. Whether you are a regular sailor, new to the sport or simply want a day out with the family, Push the Boat Out provides the perfect opportunity for everyone to get out on the water and celebrate a national weekend of sailing.
The biggest sailing competition ever in Bulgaria, happened in Bourgas Bay over the last five days. Ray Hunt, a first-class helmsman and an inventive, trend-setting designer of both sail and powerboats.
In the world of great boat designers—those whose innovations have had outsized effects on the boat world—it is rare that an individual is claimed equally by both the power and the sail fraternities.
In the twentieth century, there was one massive exception to this generality: Charles Raymond Hunt. Hunt’s genius remains evident all around us today in every deep-vee on the water, in ultra-low- displacement sailboats (ULDBs) racing to Hawaii in the Transpac, in the wholesome centerboard cruis- ers that owe much to his “Shoaler” designs, and of course in the ubiquitous Boston Whaler. Duxbury Harbor is a shallow bight of Plymouth Bay alive with tidal currents and open to the south, a good place to feel the interaction of wind, water, and boat. Hunt’s “very close touch with the water,” and many other things, became apparent in the 1920s when he began sailing in the rarefied air of the Eastern Yacht Club of Marblehead.
Paine took an interest in this astute youngster, and in 1929 Hunt was sent down to Oyster Bay with Paine’s new 8-meter Gypsy for the eliminations to select the Seawanhaka Cup defender. Ray Hunt’s 12-meter Easterner, beautiful but not quite competitive enough for the America’s Cup. Paine, Belknap & Skene was a gathering place for boat-minded Bostonians in the early 1930s, and it is unclear whether some of them worked there or just hung around talking boats. Concordia, with offices at 50 State Street, was an enterprise “with a very wide charter,” founded by Llewellyn Howland.
The new thing in racing in the early 1930s was the frostbite dinghy, and the two Concordia Company partners hatched a B-class dinghy project.
They soon sold a fleet of 12' hardchine boats to a group of sailing friends on a lake in Dublin, New Hampshire, and followed in the mid-1930s with Ray Hunt designs for larger boats built by Casey, Pierce and Kilburn, and Lawley’s. Ray Hunt was interested then in design, production boatbuilding, winning races—he won the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club’s Challenge Cup in 1938 in a chartered 6 Meter—and in new materials.
Dick Fisher and his partner, Bob Pierce were commissioned by Hunt to build the prototypes of what would become the 110. Fisher and Pierce built the boats, and the project that became the 110—a high-performance sailing box of plywood that owed nothing to tradition—was later given to Lawley’s for volume production. It was typical of Hunt that other projects were in the works in the years when the first Concordias and 110s were attracting attention.
During World War II, the Hunts moved back to Cohasset, and Ray began to take an interest in powerboats. The Huntforms were predecessors of the deep-vee in that they had round bottom sections—a convex curve along the bottom that flared up and out in concave curves like the lips of a bell at the chine lines. The boating boom was on after the war, and Hunt set up a multifaceted business at Graves Yacht Yard in Marblehead. Ray Hunt found time for ocean racing during all of this, and among his triumphs in the 1940s and 1950s were beating the powerful Baruna boat-for-boat with the 510 on the New York Yacht Club Cruise, winning the Vice Commodore’s Cup on the NYYC Cruise of 1950 with one of the Shoalers, sailing several Bermuda Races in Zara, winning the New London-Marblehead Race three times for the Lambert trophy, winning the Annapolis-Newport Race in 1957 with Harrier, his Concordia 41, as well as taking the Cygnet Cup in that year’s NYYC Cruise. In the mid-1950s, Dick Fisher conceived the idea of a balsawood pram that would weigh about 15 pounds. Fisher and Bob Pierce built what they felt was an improved Sailfish out of foam and epoxy and showed it to Ray Hunt. The design of the Boston Whaler is a good example of how Ray Hunt often worked—a clear idea realized in a prototype, then modified with input from others. During the late 1950s, Hunt was experimenting with a hull form that would revolutionize powerboating and make his name familiar all over the world. The first deep-vee was a 23' prototype built of wood by Charlie and Sam Wharton in Jamestown, Rhode Island. At the same time, Jim Wynne had a 24' Hunt deep-vee built with Volvo sponsorship by Palmer Scott in Massachusetts and fitted with two 80-hp Volvo stern-drive packages.
The genesis of the Hunt deep-vee was straightforward; its patent situation was more complicated. Ray Hunt was a powerful, creative force in the lives of the hundreds of people his enterprises and inventions touched. She is an interesting transitional design, which shows more deadrise aft, and more beam than the early Huntforms, less twist in the after bottom, (more monohedron, as Lindsay Lord was then promoting) and a high chine line forward. It is truly amazing - and typical of Raya€™s intuitive sense - that today, after so many attempts at a better deep-vee racing hull, and no doubt with various improvements, that Raya€™s original 24-degree deadrise is still used.

They have been described as having a classic look above the waterline while having a modern appendage package with a deep lead bulb with wings and a trim tab to provide exceptional upwind performance.
Banks themselves useA CHAPSA to move money around the financial system but there are several situations where individuals use it too. Ita€™s only used for Sterling transactions and payments are unconditional a€“ once theya€™ve been made they cana€™t be recalled without the recipienta€™s consent. That's up from roughly 92,000 jobs in the area in 2010, the association said in an October report. Thomson was right beside the furling drum when the pin sheared watching in dismay as the mast hinged backwards, carrying the sails with it and breaking as it landed.
The association lost a quarter of its members in the recession and key yacht clubs are still in choppy financial waters. That rule was something lacking on a now scrapped 2020 vision document suba€“titled a€?grow the sport, grow the membership, grow the organisationa€™.
It saves them money and helps propagate our fine art heritage on the internet to many who might not see it elsewhere. From superyacht builders and yachting lifestyle accessories to brokers and dealers of superyachts, multihulls, day cruisers and sportfishers, a wide variety of companies have already committed to returning again in 2015.

Our latest research led us to abandon traditional hosting services and move into Cloud Hosting. With so many servers carrying the load, even with our large number of sites, we never have to worry about increasing the number of yacht listings, or sudden increase in traffic again. What that means is, you don't have to search the web for your package, then download it, then install it, then set it up.
There were vessels and gear of every shape and size including 40 yachts, sailboats and power-driven boats on display in the column-free North Halls. Over one thousand international media and VIP guests A registered online or accepted invitations to visit the show.
Procurement personnel from shipbuilders are here from key players including Sea Ray Boats under the world's largest yacht-making group Brunswick Corporation, renowned U.S. Through the ibon kiosks at 7-Eleven convenience stores, over 10,000 tickets were pre-sold before the show opened. The fire department recue boat was quickly deployed and the people were saved without injury.
The 33.5-meter, 100-tonne Horizon RP110 will be the biggest one on display, according to officials from Kaohsiung City's Marine Bureau. Production at yards in Taiwan reached just US$148 million in 2012, down from US$357 million in 2008. Staging such an event of this scale requires dedication and commitment by all parties involved and we are delighted with the continuing support and enthusiasm for the show, not only with our local business partners and exhibitors but by an ever-increasing number from across the British Isles, Guernsey and France. To sailors, Ray Hunt was the designer of the 110, the 210, the Concordia yawl, and many suc- cessful one-offs.


The Greek philosopher—inventor of the screw propeller, explainer of the principles of leverage, conceiver of the laws of displacement of fluids while taking a bath—saw more clearly into the physical world than other men. His grandfather, Cassius Hunt, was a Duxbury native who had built the original Duxbury Yacht Club building on his summer property. Hunt and Gypsy were selected, but it made the committee nervous that this 21-year-old from Boston had been trouncing the best of America’s 8s with a crew of three instead of five. Frank Paine’s brother John kept a desk there, as did Waldo Howland’s father Llewellyn, and there were other associates and visitors attached to the place, including two youngsters interested in yacht design–Arthur Schuman and Ray Hunt. They took the first boat down to Mason’s Island, near Mystic, Connecticut, won a winter regatta with it, and sold it that day. And in the winter of 1938-39, Hunt designed the first of the Concordia yawls for Waldo Howland’s father Llewellyn.
He usually got things right, but maybe not the first time,” said Dick Fisher, his collaborator on the Boston Whaler.
There were always other projects in the works, and they ranged from domestic contrivances, to rough sketches of neverbefore-seen types of boats, to fine details of gear and rigging. He became a lobster fisherman, first in an old rumboat, and then in a “Huntform” A Concordia yawl with spinnaker set, roaring downwind. The Marblehead “sailing center” was involved in brokerage, new-boat construction, rentals of 110s, chartering the Hunt family’s 53' ketch Zara, selling 110s and 210s, building dinghies for Boston’s Community Sailing Center, and sailmaking. The idea of the deep-vee came from his experience with the Huntforms, from the new possibilities inherent in lightweight and high-rpm engines that came out of Detroit beginning in 1949, and from Hunt’s careful reading of Lindsay Lord’s The Naval Architecture of Planing Hulls. The boat had surface propellers and lacked the familiar lifting strakes, but it was a good test bed for the idea of a vee-section hull that could cut through the water without pounding. The tale has been told many times how Bertram and Wynne dominated that rough run to Nassau, finishing one-two while the rest of the fleet straggled in the next day. The final blow was the loss of the deep-vee patent, but the first was Easterner’s failed America’s Cup campaigns in 1958 and 1962.
Ray Hunt began his remarkable career as a savvy and sensitive helmsman, and this sensitivity to wind and water, and to the behavior of boats in both, was the essence of his genius as a yacht designer. Raymond Hunt Associates in Boston with John Deknatel, and the firm produced designs for O’Day, HiLiner, Bertram International, and other boatbuilders as well as for private clients. He died in the summer of 1978, but the enterprises and inventions are still with us, and it is likely that they will be influential—indeed, a powerful creative force in themselves—for generations.
In a nasty following sea at high speed, Ray purposely left the helm untended to a€?tie his shoe.a€? He let the boat run harmlessly downwind on her own - and claimed he scared them all to prove his point, which was that whereas most boats of the day would have broached immediately, Sea Blitz did not even need a hand on the helm.

To those with the need for speed, he was the genius behind the deep-vee hull and has a place in history cemented by Moppie, the proto- type Bertram 31 that won the rough 1960 Miami- Nassau powerboat race and changed fast power- boating forever.
Raymond Hunt Associates, which is still run by his business partner John Deknatal, continues to produce great designs for top builders, among them Hunt Yachts, a related firm that produces a range of Hunt powerboats, including the well known Surfhunter series. They were a sailing family, and a sailing business family whose fish dealership, Cassius Hunt & Co. Waldo’s father gave him all the stock, and he and Ray Hunt “shared profits and expenses” in a business that began with brokerage and moved into design, boatbuilding, and eventually the renowned Concordia yard. They took a second, beamier boat to Essex, Connecticut, and won two days of racing against the likes of Cornelius Shields and Briggs Cunningham. He was not much of a boatbuilder, but it was part of his instinctive method that he had to get his hands on the materials and, ultimately, had to work with a prototype of what he had sketched on paper—sometimes the back of an envelope or a paper bag. In 1939-40, Hunt moved his family into a house that Waldo Howland owned in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, and, in an arrangement made by Llewellyn Howland, began working on sailcloth at the Wamsutta mills in New Bedford.
Perhaps the most interesting version of the Huntform hull was a 20' tank-test model for a destroyer that Charles Francis Adams persuaded the Navy’s Bureau of Ships to test.
It didn’t last for more than a few years, but the business was like Frank Paine’s design office as a magnet for new talents and ideas.
What evolved was the 13' Boston Whaler, first as a Hunt design that resembled a little Hickman Sea Sled, then with variations of a central hull with sponsons on either side. Something like the deep-vee boats we know today appeared when Bill Dyer made four fiberglass versions of the 23 for a new company called Essex Fiber Boat. The previous summer, a 15'6" Hunt-designed deep-vee outboard driven by Jim Lacy and Ted Hermann had won the Around Long Island Marathon at an average speed of 34.2 mph.
Hunt’s only 12-Meter design was one of the handsomest Twelves ever launched, and although Easterner showed power and speed on occasion the yacht never performed consistently well. Like Archimedes, he saw more clearly into the physical world than other men, and what he understood produced boats like the deep vees that were more to the point than anything that had come before. During the 1970s he was experimenting with waterballast systems in a 21' HiLiner deep vee, a big trimaran for Phil Weld that was never built, a parafoil system to draw a boat along, plus special sailcloth from Howe & Bainbridge for the kite, and a 110 with the mast all the way aft and a big quadrilateral jib. The greatest difference from the Nautical Quarterly information is that we now have many boats whose deadrise is closer to 22 degrees, rather than the 24 degrees typical in raceboats. Ita€™s also sometimes used by people buying or selling a high-value item, such as a car, when they need a secure, urgent, same-day guaranteed payment.
Moppie, and another smaller Hunt deep-vee piloted by Jim Wynne, left the rest of the field far behind. Hunt told Yachting magazine decades later that “we could race that boat quite satisfactorily with three, and the two added crew had no experience in 8s and never worked into our system.” When the Depression came Ray Hunt was one of many young men on the loose.
Howland was on the loose, too, although he had made some money selling old schooners to Frank Paine’s office and talking to Ray Hunt and Arthur Schuman,” Howland remembered, and the result of those conversations, in 1932, was a Hunt-Howland partnership in the Concordia Company. Although they only built and sold three frostbiters that winter of 1933-34, it was an auspicious beginning for Ray Hunt, a designer whose principal credentials were his instincts, and for Waldo Howland, who began putting certain things together. It was only a year of research and development before the war, but it was the beginning of modern sailmaking, and Hunt was one of its pioneers. The Navy never took it up, but the BuShips technicians are reported to have been impressed; the model was said to have achieved the speed of a conventional slim destroyer, but—being beamier—was more stable at rest and had far less roll moving through test-tank seas. One of them was sold to Jacob Isbrandtsen as a tender for Vim during the America’s Cup summer of 1958, and Dick Bertram, Miami yacht broker and member of Vim’s crew, took an interest in the boat and eventually acquired it. The deep-vee was launched by its racing success, and in 1961 the Bertram Yacht Company began a production run of the famous Bertram 31.
If you give incorrect information and the payment goes astray your bank must make a€?reasonable effortsa€™ to trace the transaction but may charge for doing so. The New England sailor and designer was father or godfather to the deep-vee powerboat, the ubiquitous 13' and 16' Boston Whalers, the Concordia yawls, the modern spinnaker, the amidships cockpit sloop, the lively 110 and 210 day-racers, an improved destroyer hull design for the U.S.
He found a home, and the beginnings of a profession, in Frank Paine’s design and brokerage office on Beacon Street, Boston.
Bertram asked Hunt to design a 31' version, and he had the first one built of wood in Miami for the 1960 Miami-Nassau powerboat race.
Powerboat design, certainly in terms of numbers, has been dominated by the deep-vee hull ever since. Crockett, columnist for Skipper magazine, visited Ray Hunt in his office in Padanaram, Massachusetts, and asked what he was up to. Ray Hunt revolutionized the design of 5.5-Meter boats in 1956 with Quixotic, which he drew for Ted Hood and Don McNamara on the back of a manila envelope. Navy, world-beating 5.5-Meter yachts, and perhaps scores more of boats and boat developments that were left unfinished in the creative ferment of his life, were taken up by others, or remain to be discovered.
Only a rigging failure kept her from sailing in the Olympics, and Hunt made up for the failure in 1960 with Minotaur, which George O’Day and Jim Hunt sailed to an Olympic Gold Medal at Naples against the best of Einar Ohlson’s designs. In the mid- ’twenties he bought what was thought to be an uncompetitive R-boat from the designer, Frank Paine, and proceeded to beat the new Rs, including one sailed by Paine himself, in what was then the principal arena for these 25'-waterline sloops.
In 1963, he won the 5.5 Worlds himself in Chaje II, a boat he designed for Jussi Nemes of Finland.
Once the money is in their account, it cannot be recalled without the recipeinta€™s consent. Although his name is familiar to anyone involved with boats, he remains an obscure inventor, a Wizard of Oz. Hunt found himself busy suing infringers of his patents in the early 1960s, and he was relatively successful until one of them discovered the article in Skipper. To add insult to injury, Ray Hunt had to pay one of the copyists $30,000 in damages, because the firm had gone out of business defending its patent infringement.
