The patented Chris White Designs MastFoil™ is a unique combination of modern rigid airfoil technology with proven soft sails. MastFoil is a small part of the overall sail plan and can rotate 360 degrees around the load bearing mast. This allows it to be feathered on any point of sail and in any wind velocity. Left alone, the foil will continuously feather if the control is set in that mode. Another important feature is that the foil does not carry any of the mast compression loads. This enables the foil to be lightweight, structurally simple and to rotate easily around the mast.
The MastFoil rig is exclusive to Chris White Designs, and MastFoil™ is covered by Patent# 8919272 and Patent# 9114863.
Double tapered carbon fiber mast, each fitted with lightweight composite Mastfoils with counterweights incorporated. Masts are deck stepped with Kevlar K-49 shrouds.
Carbon fiber self tacking jib booms.
The 49’ Atlantic Catamaran is designed to be fully operational underway without relying on a generator; the batteries and inverters will handle all the A/C loads including air conditioning.
The house batteries are 2 x 300 amp hour at 24V. Lithionics LiPo4
There are 2 x 3000 amp Victron inverter/ chargers that share house loads so everything can be run from the battery bank. To charge the batteries the vessel has 2 kw of solar which can top off the system in the day.
Both engines have 200 amp x 24 V alternators so they can really recharge the house bank quickly.
In real hot environments it is not uncommon to idle an engine overnight when running the refrigeration and wanting AC all night.
The engines are on soft mounts with the aqua drive systems and don’t use much fuel at 1000 rpm
