First Arrow 1200 Launched

The Schionning Designs team are very excited to announce that the first of the brand new Arrow Series has touched the water in Malaysia. The Arrow 1200, named 'SALT', has touched down and is floating beautifully after a very fast build by experienced builders Danny Moore and Nigel Cross. The speed with which they assembled the Arrow 1200 kit is a testament to the new 100% flat panel design range, however there are finishing touches to be done on the water over the coming months. The beautiful gloss pearl finish is stunning, and Danny & Nigel are planning on black forebeam, black mast/rigging and daggerboards to fully complete the clean modern styling.

A big congratulations to Danny & Nigel and thank you for supplying us so many fantastic progress shots during the construction. If you'd like to learn more about the Arrow 1200 design or to view more photos of the launching - see the design page here.

Optimus Yachtbuilders & Oceanvolt Produce Zero-Emission Arrow

What began as a family venture, has evolved into the desire to professionally build sailing yachts. Christophe Schepens (an engineer and certified RYA Yachtmaster) has established Optimus Yachtbuilders in Belgium. They will be building ZERO-emission sailing cats near Antwerp. For their first yacht, an Arrow 1360, they'll combine the very light and performance-oriented composite construction (foam, carbon, epoxy) with the electric propulsion and charging systems of Oceanvolt. Sizing of Lithium battery-banks and solar capacity will be optimised in collaboration with the Flemish Innovation partner VITO. All the yachts will be built to comply with CE-certification A. The first ZERO-emission "Optimus 45" can be expected in the water second quarter of 2017. Optimus Yachtbuilders will be offering the complete Arrow Series by Schionning Designs as ZERO-emission, high performance sailing cats. The Optimus Yachtbuilders website is under construction so stay tuned for more details.

The City 2 Surf Yacht Race 2016 saw some tough conditions and many retired vessels, but with over 100 entries there was a strong fleet at the finish. See the results here, or get some information and join the fun next year!

Stylish Transom Handles

Take a look at this great idea, shared by Peter and Rosalind Hopkins who have added this feature to the transoms of their Wilderness 1320. The solid unobtrusive handles will give excellent stability and balance when embarking or disembarking the dinghy, and even when getting in and out of the water while swimming. Plus it looks like the perfect place to tie the painter!

If you've got any great ideas that you'd like to share with other Schionning builders, feel free to send it in to the Schionning team and we'll share it around. Stay tuned for a new online resource and community for Schionning Owners and Builders!
