After 30+ years of sailing +20 mt boats around the world I ended up in one of the birth place of Danish maritime story, Fanø. Here I worked in the local shipping museum and finally got the good idea:of combining a foiling catamaran hull with a square rig. Working with Tuco on carbon fiber power cats in 2015, I had discovered the expensive side of carbon fiber boat building, so turning to the local wind mill wing fabrication I discovered the combination of glass fiber and carbon fiber. At the same time I discovered the manufacturer of +4 mt diameter glass fiber pipes. In Esbjerg I found a group of bright students, some already with their first masters taken, and got them to work on the idea development. We realized the value as party platform, as its biggest earner and formed a marketing and business plan here after.
Our view on the financial funding of the first vessel, is starting with a web based platform to control and visualize the functions of Man-Hour Controls, Expense Control, Time/Space Booking platform.
We believe in plastics as part of our comfort, safety and feasible lifestyle today. Only the plastics are available today, as no other material has this strong binding fibers, needed in safe clean packaging, carparts, untensils etc. Further the easy recycling and multiple options in re-use in areas of agro industry packageging saving our food and feeding the world.
Unfortunately has plastics long life span and durability been underestimated and we now have to act to clean our oceans and estatuaries. In order to recicle plastics, with todays oil and refinery prices, you need to deliver "scrap plastics"at factory door at approx 10 USD per mtons. The same polution scenario happend with our iron in cars, but we now have cleaned our scrap yards over the las decades. Likewise we predict the help of "trash separation culture" will produce a cleaner world, but we must act on this.
Squarerig bunks selling prices estimate USD 350 per bunk/day based on f.ex. the Amsterdam.
A 1200 m2 "elastic dance floor" in the right place is priceless and very pending who is inviting and performing. We took our experiences from Rio de Janeiro party arranging experiences and put the value at 3.000 USD with 20% occupancy.
A day sailing with Plastique is also priceless but an 3-hourly earning of 1000 USD per day very feasiable.
Here some of the arguments for the cruise organization possible due to the innovative design concepts.
Square rig and catamaran are natural partners as lower Gravity-point, IMPROVES DRASTICALLY THE HEALING NORMALLY FELT ON SAILBOAT, and with/when foiling smoth and littel shaky ride expected.
High masts with full with booms (where sails are fasted and furled (rolled) in are excellent for fast rain/sun covering of 20 by 50 (1000 m2) of deck for dancing, game playing, meetings, prize giving etc.etc.
Tobogao chutes from 30 mts height with water.
Light, Laser and water shows from 40 mt high mast top.
Pipe hull sides covered in netting with stanchions but always easy acces to the water.
Windsurfs, SUP and canoes besides all diving equipment and underwater observations windows.
4 x anchors in corner beam/hulls and 10xvertical foils speed and beach standing.
2 x Thrusters, electric driven in midships foils, can make streams/waterfalls kind of lightshows.
Cabins with small refrigerator and microwave owen, table, chairs, bed or bunks-turning-table, wall TV/Monitor with LAN games, brigde control repeating etc. All utensils eco plastics and prefeably one-time. Minimun onboard party equipment like barbecue, Vok, refrigerator equipment for party time. Several freezers units and row of visicoolers. Basic idea that all food as indivial desire and to handle themselves, crew or guests. Professionel Diner-In and catering when needed in ports/beaches events.
Square rig and catamaran are natural partners as lower Gravity-point and wider sheet fastening points possible.
Carbon masts and booms, with deck level furling, sheet and hailyard central control points, all possible due new materials in nautical equipment.
10 x foils with 0 formed foil wings fitting hull curve.
Comment on size of foil and hull: Average wave height in the pretended sailing area worldwide does not pass 2 mts 90% of the time and lot less in the highly populated and seasport interesting areas. Check http://www.seafriends.org.nz/oceano/waves.htm
4 x anchors in "corners" and 10 vertical folding foil/spods for tide lift standing.
2 x central foil/spods equipped with thrusters electric driven and generating under sail.
Side thruster paddle wheel, electric powered optional.
