Windfall 58

The Windfall 58 strives to work smarter not harder.  Utilizing innovative features such as leeward lifting foils, end-plated sails, and a canting rig this 58 will sail right past 66′ and 68′ boats that are currently considered performance cruising catamarans.  Advanced foil design brings comfort as well as speed to the Windfall 58.  Both the leeward lifting foils, and the T-rudders, decrease vertical accelerations and pitch amplitude.  This means that passengers on board are more comfortable than displacement catamarans, and faster speeds can be carried into difficult sea states.  The combination of leeward lift foils and straight daggerboards protects upwind performance, particularly in light air.  The leeward lift foils can be fully retracted at low speed.  This allows drag to be minimized, and places the Windfall 58 in the optimum configuration to build apparent wind speed.  With sailing modes that can quickly be adjusted from exhilarating to peaceful, the Windfall 58 is a great fit for experienced owner-operators.  Alternatively, with a professional crew the Windfall 58 can tear through an ambitious regatta schedule.

 

Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine USA has been selected as the boat builder of choice for this light weight project.  Front Street presents the rare combination of a skilled workforce with boatyard infrastructure that is perfect for performance cruising catamarans.  The entire team at Front Street Shipyard strives to form long-term client relationships by providing exceptional customer service.
