Pogo 2 Production!

Jerome

Hello everyone!

If we count the days, it has been since the first of the year since we initiated the production of the Pogo 2 in the USA. We are proud to announce that after exactly 8 months of hard but quality work, the production of hull # 1 has started this week. The deck will be ready early next week. By then we will have the first lead bulb and cast iron foil made as well. In the meantime, we are also getting other structural hull component fabricated and will start laying up the hull in the next couple of weeks.

Hull # 1 should be ready by the end of September. We will start production of Hull # 2 by the end of August for Lee, Mini racer who is planning on participating to the 2011 Mini Transat. Hull # 3 will get into production around September.

The first Pogo 2 will be introduced in the USA for the first time at the Annapolis Boat Show. Contact us to make sure you can see the boat, and maybe schedule a demo ride!

If all goes well, we are planning on building 3, maybe 4 Pogo 2 before the end of 2010. If you are planning on getting a Pogo 2 for the 2011 season, we definitely encourage you to contact us and book your production slot!

One of the only two Finot-Conq Open 40 !

Jerome

Make no mistake: this is not a class 40. The Open 40, designed in 2001 by Finot-Conq is a full carbon fiber boat, with a rotating wing tapered mast. The Open 40 is about 1,000 lbs lighter than the lightest Class 40 out there, carries more mast (69 feet), more sail area (the boom itself is 25 feet) and more ballast (up to 1.6 metric ton on each side)!!!
