Class 6 for V Yacht - Hydraulic
O Yachts and V Yacht collaborated with O Yachts in charge of composit job and V Yachts for boat completion (Engine, Interior, Rudders...).
V Yacht is specialised in Hydraulic systems for boats, with real extended experience.
Hydraulic is used for :
- Second engine for harbour with hydraulic pod
- Main sail sheet management is made with Carbon hydraulic ram
- Main sail inboom furling is hydraulic
- Solent, Genoa, Genaker, Code0 are using hydraulic furlers
- Tender lifting management is made with hydraulic ram
- Hydraulic below mast sensor is giving sail plan load pressure in Tones
Why : much lighter than electric solutions
Why : much faster furling (excellent for Code0 or Asymetric furling)
Why : load sensor to stop at excessive load. For instance, when furling the front sails, the system will stop before breaking parts if something get blocked.
In boom furling
Front sail furling. The furler is much smaller and much lighter than electric model.
