Now in its sixth generation, VDS features three distinct running surfaces. The transom deadrise, for example, changes in three 1-degree increments from 24 degrees (a true deep-V) at the very bottom to 22 degrees as it ascends to the hull sides.
Occurring along the length of the stepped hull, this multi-angle geometry helps deliver the soft ride of a deep-V in rough offshore waters, but also maximizes speed and fuel-efficiency in smooth water. The triple strakes and hard chines boost lift and toss aside spray to help ensure a dry ride. Construction starts with a hand-laid stringer grid that's injected with closed-cell foam and reinforced with fiberglass mat for structural integrity and durability. That explains the solid feel of the boat as we traversed the lumpy water.
Sailfish uses Kevlar- and carbon-fiber-reinforced high-load areas and avoids using wood to eliminate any worries about rot.
