NEW YACHTS — Sydney GTS43

Among the latest models from Sydney Yachts is the new GTS43 that’s hailed as a light, ocean-tough, seriously fast but easily managed cruiser-racing yacht with the performance sailor in mind.

The yachtbuilder said the Sydney GTS43 is a fast, safe, comfortable and fully fitted-out design, engineered to ISO Standards, Category A, and ideal for shorthanded racing and cruising.

Typical of its predecessors, Sydney Yachts said the GTS43 features a large open cockpit that enables simple and efficient crew manoeuvres as well as comfortable on-deck entertaining.

The GTS43 is said to have a comfortable, practical interior ideal for twilight and ocean racing alike, with three double cabins, a fully enclosed head, well-appointed galley and navigation area, and ample storage space for cruising.

The uncluttered deck layout suits both racing and cruising, with excellent ergonomics when beating upwind or enjoying a drink on anchor.

"A refined double spreader rig with non-overlapping headsails ensures ease of handling. It is responsive and a pleasure to sail. The easy-to-sail format translates to less crew for racing and ease of cruising," said Sydney Yachts.

The GTS43 is from Ker Design, which Sydney Yachts said has extensive Americas Cup technology at its disposal, and continues to develop an improved understanding of the science of yacht performance and applies this to its new IRC designs.

"The hull shape used for the new model is the product of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) research, a significant number of design options were analysed leading to some surprising and highly exciting conclusions," said Sydney Yachts.

"The final shape selected for the new Sydney GTS43 has shown to be significantly more efficient than the already highly successful previous generations Sydney Yachts," it said.
