I don't know what it is. But, you're all wrong.

 

I agree, none save the Melges has chines, and the cabintop is all wrong for the Melges.

 

that's strange, I'm building an i550 and the last time I looked, it had chines. I better take another look.

anyway, it ain't an i550...

Looks like an Open 6.50

Stern traveler.

Dual rudders

Rotating mast

BUT NO CHINES.

 

So I don't know other than I like the look of it. Maybe a new Open 6.50 design by Juan K???

Saw the boat in Dronten (Netherlands) I think it was the prototype. Not sure about the spec's of the boat, some things looked very light but time will tell.

At least we have to applaud the innitiative. I understood the keel is canted hydraulic. (on a 6mtr. boat?)

Quick translation:

North Sails designs sails for new open canting keeler by Linq Boats

 

North Sails has worked together closely with Linq Boats to design the sails for the new spectacular open canting keeler CQ-6.

 

During Boat Düsseldorf 2009 Linq Boats will introduce this first series built open canting keeler of six meters, the CQ-6. The new and ambitious builder wants to bring the spectacular high tech sailing of the Volvo Ocean Race within reach of the sports sailor.

Buzzword Bingo, anyone?

 

Canting keels are increasingly frequent, but a series built boat featuring a canting keel shorter than nine meters did not yet exist. That's why Linq Boats took the initiative to develop such a boot with a team of specialists. After a year of developing and building Linq Boats introduces a boat the can carry a stunning amount of sail for its length thanks to its canting keel. This makes it fast and spectacular, but very reliable as well.

 

Speed, that's what it's about. With eight knots of breeze this racing machine easily planes. For those sailing this boat, speed of over 15 knots will become very ordinary.

Thus the slogan: "The stunning sailing experience". Still, the CQ-6 isn't twitchy. Thanks to the modern hull form and the canting keel this 3-man boat is very stable. The easy to use canting keel and rotating mast make the concept of this boat revolutionary and show some of the latest sailing techniques.

 

Linq Boats developed this design for racing sailors and sailing enthousiasts, or people that just want to 'blow' for a while. [translators note: The quotation marks arent even mine! They were there already, even though in Dutch blowing only has one meaning... :huh:] The boat is easy to handle, which makes it very suitable for sailing schools and event organizers that want to introduce their relations to the spectacular sailing on a canting keeler. The lifting keel makes the boat easy to transport.

 

Even though this boat is made from the best materials, it is very affordable thanks to the efficient construction method. The class will be bound by strict rules, so there won't be any additional development costs.

 

The builder:

Linq Boats is an initiative by Jurian Rademaker. Rademaker was a technician for the ABN AMRO Volvo Ocean Race teams and project leader on the build of a bigger, custom-built canting keel yacht. Linq Boats will continue to work on the development of her boats together with several experts and wil market several different models. To stimulate the growth of the CQ-6 class, promotion boats will be taking part in a number of large sailing events in the coming season. Linq Boats will also organize a tour and an event centered around the CQ-6 in 2009. Linq Boats activities at Boat Düsseldorf (17-25 January 2009) can be followed on www.linqboats.com

So, to summarize: 20 foot boat, canting and lifting keel, rotating mast, lots of sail area (or so they say). Sounds good, but I don't really think the "affordable" thing is going to come true...

It's a CQ-6! The first open canting keel boat produced in series!

 

CQ-6 is an initiative from my good friend Jurian Rademaker. Jurian was involved in the ABN AMRO Volvo Ocean Race teams as a technician, and he was the project leader of the build of a custom-built canting keel yacht. His company Linq Boats will continuously be working on the development of its boats with a team of experts and plans to market a variety of models.

 

Canting keels have become increasingly popular, but a series-built canting keel boat no longer than nine meters hadn’t been built yet. Therefore the Dutch company Linq Boats took the initiative to design such a boat with a specialist team. After a year of developing and building, Linq Boats presents a boat that can carry a huge amount of sail for its length and weight. This makes the CQ-6 extremely fast and spectacular, but at the same time very reliable.

 

Superior sailing!!

Very Open 5.70 inspired.

 

More expensive and exotic with some refinements.

 

Chines are a good idea. I wish the Open had them.

Same mainsheeting arrangement with full traveler at the back.

Rotating mast, carbon, cabin top stepped, not deck stepped like Open. Looks like a Tornado mast or similar.

Larger chute, bowsprit is non-retractable with stay to chainplate on bow.

 

Very cool but likely very pricey.

Photographer needs to clean his lens.

 

That's not on the lens, T Man.... it's a piece of schmutz directly on the chip that records the image. No doubt a digital SLR with interchangeable lenses. Happens to all of us, but it is mandatory that the photog clean-up the image before tossing it out there in public.

YASB (yawn)

 

Yet Another Sport Boat for the swimming a-feared girly-men who want to go fast but suffer from lack-o'sack to sail a dinghy.

 

or maybe it's Yet Another Sportboat for tough/strong men and women who want to blast past leadmines on distance and destination races in which a dink would not qualify to compete?

 

horses for courses, my testosterone-poisoned friend.

actually, it's most likely the low-pass filter in front of the charge-coupled device that records the image...it got schmutzig...

but, whatever.

He's just quoting the press release. Linq Boats wouldn't be the first builder to claim that their boat is the first of it's kind when it's actually not...

Very true future, I have to admit though, if the winner got a test sail I would have fought you for it!

i hope i haven't missed this already but, how do they power the ram in such a small package?

 

2 small battery cells of the dimension as an battery used for motorbikes store the power for roundabout 100 canting actions - Thats what they told me at the Düsseldorf Boat show last wensday. Have a look in the parallel thread here:
