In 2020 the Solaris 60 was launched. This model marks the way of building and conceiving the boat and it will influence the nautical design for the future.
Solaris 60 is inspired by the idea of creating a Mini-Maxi, a high performance sailboat, with an overall length of 18.31 m. This length allows to take part in offshore racings, in Mini-Maxi class, including the main event in Porto Cervo that take place every year.
The main innovation of the Solaris 60 is the cockpit because of its full width steering wheels. You can steer the boat without the intrusion of the sprayhood. This ensure that the jib’s luff is always completely left in sight while sailing.
The width of the steering system allows to lower the lifelines in the aft area and to lift them near the two steps that lead to the side decks. This solution is normally adopted on very big boats, bigger than 140 ft. Moreover, thanks to the width of the wheels even during manoeuvring and navigation, the helmsman will have an unobstructed view without any kind of obstacle.
Behind the wheels several seat options are available to steer in different sea conditions, even sitting down. Below deck you will find a typical Solaris layout which includes a galley slightly hidden by two steps forward and for the first time two aft cabins with single or double beds, with a wide porthole facing the interior of the cockpit.
The owner’s cabin, situated in the front, is extremely wide and equipped with a wide capacity and with the option of outboard or central bed. Special focus to the crew cabin too, situated in the bow, equipped with a separate bathroom. The tender garage, with longitudinal access, has a minimum intrusion into the aft cabins.
