Since the launch of the Pilot Saloon range in 1991, the French shipyard Wauquiez has delivered more than 300 units worldwide. This range of transoceanic sailboats has a unique approach responding to all modern sailing programs by offering brightness, comfort and pleasure in sailing.
The Pilot Saloons are built in France in accordance with the artisanal techniques of joinery, cabinetmaking, and other bodies of trade while remaining at the forefront of the technology of shipbuilding of classic habitable boats. (Carbon, infusion, 3D software, etc.).
The Wauquiez shipyard team is pleased to present its newborn from the Pilot Saloon range: the Pilot Saloon 42.
The new Wauquiez PS 42 has been designed around a resolutely efficient hull.
“ The vertical bow and grazing arch gives the boat maximum flotation length, a sign of modernity but above all a guarantee of high average speed.
A powerful bow and the softened and scalable chine hull, give very important shape stability to make the boat stable and easy to lead in the breeze, while increasing, by damped movements, the comfort at sea.
We have particularly worked the rear water lines which while playing the power card optimize the wet surface for downwind and light weather.
In addition to the hull, the appendages were the focus of our attention:
Bi-rudder, the maneuverability, whether under sail or with the engine, is reinforced and the control of the boat is total in all conditions even the harshest.
Well weighted with a 2.15 GTE lead keel for 3 tonnes and a PTE for those who like anchoring in shallow waters is L shaped with a low centre of gravity to improve stability in the breeze. »
BRIGHTNESS, ADVENTURE, FREEDOM
With the Pilot Saloon 42, the Wauquiez shipyard team gave birth to a boat with an elegant line and innovative technology. The Pilot Saloons are open to the outside and our teams have created a dynamic, comfortable boat for travel.
Their great maneuverability and ease of maneuvering both on deck and in the cockpit give owners great freedom to enjoy life on board.
