Snipe class is one of the most beautifull dinghy designed, with a class that has a diffusion worldwide, the designer Giovanni Ceccarelli sailed as skipper in Italy and arrived to the idea to design is own boat. The design was the synthesis from CFD point of view of an extensive stdy done togheter with Massimo De Luca, 3 hull different was tested with CFD  designed with differences according to the possibility that the class give to the hull shape design.

The deck shape is optimized working together with champion of the class, easy to be build and with an optimization of the ergonomic on board when hiking.

The final hull lines ‘ll be innovative in the limits of the  parameters of the  International rule.

The deck lay out come  from the personal experience of Giovanni Ceccarelli has sailor of Snipe, but with improvment also coming from well known Italian and international sailors.

The boat was designed using the same technology of the big offshore boats design, the geometry are ready to start to machine the plugs and moulds.

For laminations we did a research with FEM at CYD to optimize the distributions of loads and to find the correct moment of inertia for the class.

The design licence from CYD could be done in licence to be build in series, we  want to have one builder in South America like Argentina, Brazil or Uruguay and one in Europe  from the same designs and moulds, we re at the moment in a good stage to start the construction in Italy.

We are open to discuss with the yards to give the licence outside Europe, we could supply also directs the moulds ready to start the production or only the drawings.
