This GS34 PERFORMANCE VERSION has been lightly raced and also fine-tuned and tweaked by an experienced owner who has done well in a few races with podium finishes.

Recent PHRF and ORC rating certificates available. The design and naval architecture process have been realized with great attention. The aim was to create an offshore racing boat that is both easy to sail at maximum performance and a very comfortable fast cruiser. The GS 34 Performance, with an improved sail plan and appendages, has been designed for IRC handicap rating in offshore races and for ORC and PHRF. This way, the boat can be competitive in both offshore and inshore International regulations with a better rating.

 Keel and rudder

The typical IRC fin-shaped keel with a total draft of 2.18 mt is made of lead with steel and cast iron and weighs between 40% to 45% of the displacement, depending on the owner’s need. The weight remains in the lower zone by moving the center of gravity of the keel as low as possible.

The twin rudders are a suitable choice for this type of vessel and for the IRC rating system, while the tilted axes allow always effective helming and easy sailing.

The Hull

The hull geometry and appendages are the results of numerous Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and statistical analyses using Velocity Prediction Programs (VPP) compared with various rating systems. This analysis has led to a new generation of hull with a medium light displacement for an optimal ratio between the different rating systems and between performance and sportive cruising. The particular geometry of the GS34 hull allows having very powerful waterlines, hard chine, and a wide transom, which benefit sailing downwind and when heeling. The wide stern ensures great stability of form while providing a bigger space in the cockpit and inside.


The construction

The hull and deck are built in a GRP sandwich using PVC foam of different densities; it consists of E-glass biaxial and unidirectional reinforcements impregnated with vinyl ester resin inside a female industrial mold. The hull and deck are finished in gel-coat. The deck is with antiskid. The main bulkheads are made of composite materials and all the bulkheads are laminated to the hull.


Rigging

  • The mast is made of aluminum with high-performance tapered profile 9/10 fractional rig, with two sweepback spreaders in order to maximize jib roach, and a 9/10 forestay.
  • The standing rigging is attached to the shrouds chain plates which are located in the max hull beam, which allows the mounting of a Jib (from 28 to 32 square meters) with minimum overlap.
