Navigate ever more far, with confidence and security, experiencing speed, surf waves, feel the acceleration at the beginning of each planned, or use the slightest breeze to continue sailing. These are some sensations offered by the navigation experience in this plan, design inherited from the Open 40 ocean races, and adapted to the cruise, to offer the best features and safety to the high altitude sailor, but without sacrificing comfort.

The boat
Built in the prestigious French shipyards Pogo Structures, and equipped for Offshore and Oceanic Navigation. Fully enjoy its benefits, Speed, Acceleration, Comfort, Sailing Performance with Strong and Light Winds, Training, Competing, During your Holidays, or the Pleasure of Experiencing the Fun of Speed and Surf of a High Performance Cruise Vessel .

To plan or to Surf to more than 15 knots with only the force of the wind like propulsion, is an Indescribable Sensation. You go to go with the boat into the water, to go above the water, which means stop being roughly balanced by the waves and start enjoying them fully. It is surfed with ease and safety since you sail with the waves, instead of, as in conventional designs, being reached and pushed by the waves with the corresponding unpleasant swing. The Safety and Fun Speed of the VELOX SAILING are within everyone's reach.

VELOX SAILING is an Ocean Sailboat according to ISO 12217 and is also certified as Unsinkable. It has staggered compartments of collision both forward and aft. In addition to a truly watertight access to the cabin.

Its generous 4.5 meter beam, together with its 3 meters of draft give it great stability, resulting in a fast and very powerful boat that sails firm and very stable instead of swinging. This results in Stability of Course. The smooth and fast response of the rudders, the perfect centering of weights, the design and rigidity of your helmet, the lightness and power of your Carbon Fiber rig allow you to navigate with absolute control and therefore continue to enjoy, even in conditions of Hard time and low automatic pilot.

The variable draft from 3 meters, guarantee of performance and power to sail, up to 1.20 meters, allows access to shallow areas where simply other boats can not access. This is a great advantage in terms of security, given that there are more possibilities of refuge, along with greater independence from the tides. Of course, the variable draft offers greater areas of anchoring, in addition to the access to explore and enjoy more areas of navigation, without forgoing the highest performance and speed to sail.

12.50 meters of length x 4.50 meters of sleeve confer an Interior Habitability that is only found in much larger boats. VELOX is spacious, bright and very cozy. It has 3 spacious double cabins, plus all the necessary amenities to spend long periods on board, especially sailing. Of course, it is a pleasure to anchor in beautiful little crowded places, enjoy its huge and clear bathtub, a true access to the sea without obstacles, given that there is no backstay, no rigging, no ropes that interfere with traffic. Enjoy the kitchen, relax in the lounge, enjoy a refreshing cocktail, share the moment with friends. They are pleasures included in the experience.

But the real difference in comfort is felt sailing; for its stability of forms, a handling of winches and other maneuvers in an erect, natural and safe position, without the need to kneel, lean or lean over the side. Ergonomic seats in a wide, clear and protected bathtub, where you can enjoy surfing at 20 knots as well as calm anchoring. Comfort is not having to start the engine in light winds, and enjoy riding the calm sea at the same speed as the wind.

Have a clear interior where everything is organized, accessible and in sight. Comfort is having a comfortable boat to navigate.
