New Secret 33 yawl
It’s not often we get to introduce a brand new boat, so we are going to savour this moment. . . . . . The new Secret 33 yawl shares the same GRP hull as the Secret solar-electric launch and the new gaffer has also been developed with a view to commercial operations as well as for private use. Download the brochure here. . . . . . With a deeper keel than the launch, a snug little cabin with standing headroom, galley and head, this boat is great for private parties and weekenders. The huge cockpit can accommodate 12 passengers, and can be supplied with a big folding dining table under a generous awning. The cockpit seats also double as berths to add to the 3 berths down below. We also have a few special features under wraps too. . . . The Secret hulls certainly need very little encouragement to power on as evidenced by the electric hull’s proven ability to exceed 7 knots, even when fully laden. The yawl rig offers unparalleled sail setting options with a choice of no less than 4 working sails and 3 options for the go-faster sailors. Yes, the mizzen staysail is shown behind the main in the drawing – call it artistic licence, and the keen-eyed will also note that the mast can be reduced down to the jib peak for those pesky low bridges on the Swan River and other restricted waterways, so no topsails on that version. . . . . . As a trailerable gaff rigged commercial boat, the Secret 33 yawl introduces a completely new way to sail – you go where the sailing is best – say summer in Sydney and winter in the Whitsundays. The discerning owner can enjoy all the virtues of a racy gaffer and the boat can be put to work to pay for her keep – free sailing anyone?
