The Akilaria RC3 No 132 Silvi Belle 2 is now available for sale, in excellent condition, subject to a rigourous optimisation program when built and professionally maintained. Initially launched in August 2013, she proved to be one of the fastest boats in the 2013 TJV fleet. The boat is available in as new condition having undergone a full comprehensive refit at the V1D2 yard in Caen in 2015 and is available with a new Axxon carbon Rig. Both the initial build and refit were project managed by Vendee Globe skipper Josh Hall. Since the refit SB2 has finished on the podium in both the 2015 RORC Fastnet Race and RORC Transatlantic Race. The boat comes with a very comprehensive inventory and a suite of North sails aimed at short handed sailing.
Architect, Marc Lombard has to say of his latest generation production design class 40: ‘The hull is slightly narrower at the waterline than the RC2, but the sections have been tuned to provide more stability from 10 degrees of heel onwards. Upwind, the stability is increased by 7% and the drag reduced by 3%. In reaching conditions, the drag is reduced by 6% at high speed, compared to RC2 which was already very fast reaching (359 NM run in 24 h and Global Ocean Race second leg victory). Downwind performance is equal to the RC2 up to 8 knots, and improved at higher speeds with 4 to 6% drag reduction. This leads to speed increase up to 0.6 knots. The ballast system was completely redesigned. The feedback on the longitudinal balance of the previous boats along with numerical simulations allowed us to choose a single ballast configuration. The righting moment is thus maximized, and the water transfer optimized with a single very wide pipe.’
