The Dragonfly 40 has now been on the market for two seasons, and has received a fantastic response. It is a great success for our team and has taken Dragonfly to a new level.
The Dragonfly range offers fast and comfortable cruising. However, we also see a special demand for even faster boats. Therefore we are delighted to introduce the new Dragonfly 40 C and 40 C-Performance, for the ultimate performance-oriented sailors.
We are proud to announce our co-operation with Marström Composites in Sweden for this exciting project. Marström are specialists in high-tech carbon manufacturing, with years of expertise in this field.
New tooling for carbon components has been made, allowing us to offer the Dragonfly 40 with full carbon floats. All 4 beams, two main structural bulkheads in the centre hull, centreboard trunk and under deck mast support are also built in Carbon pre-preg system. All components are cured and tempered in an Autoclave. The heat and pressure optimises the lamination. The centre hull remains in Vinylester composites, to help control production costs.
Dragonfly 40 C will be around 1,000 kg lighter than the standard boat. Clients who prioritise performance will also carefully consider the extra equipment installed, to maximise this potential.
Dragonfly 40 C Performance
Dragonfly 40 C Performance is another new version, with the weight savings of the Dragonfly 40 C, plus a 1.5 m taller mast and larger sail area. This version will offer an increase in speed of c.15%. We can’t wait to sail it.
The centre hull deck and interior layout will be the same as the other versions, so it’s still easy to sail and handle – even singlehanded. A fabulous combination of performance and elegance.
The first carbon versions are sold and will be delivered during spring 2022. Please contact us for further information.
