Design #418 IMS 45
APPLE III has the rig concept of the Corel 45 (Design #369)
with a hull that is more characteristic of our IMS 49s. Relative
to the Corel 45, BIG APPLE III is the same LOA, same displacement,
44cm shorter on the waterline, 6cm narrower on the waterline
and has 5% less sail area. Sailing stability is similar to
the Corel 45.
BIG APPLE III was specifically designed for the Kenwood Cup
which means moderate to strong winds and waves. The hull shape
is highly IMS optimized with some emphasis on all-around performance
(upwind, reaching, running) versus just upwind and downwind.
The appendages are high aspect ratio fins incorporating our
latest proprietary laminar flow foil section. The keel does
not have a bulb.
