Overview

     "We just put the third reef in the main, reefed jib. Blowing 28 knots. Sailed all day in 20-23 knots close hauled at 10-12 knots comfortably. The boat is sailing like a dream. Hit 15.6 today! It was only blowing 21 knots. Waves are around 15 ft. We charged up the batteries for an hour today. We have to remind ourselves to do so because the sailing is so amazing." ~ Dale Norley skipper of "Resolute", Atlantic 48™ hull #1

     Zen is hull number 2 of the Chris White Designs Atlantic 48 series. A proven long distance cruiser that has safely cruised from Capetown to the Caribbean then on to Newport and later New Zealand. Built and designed to cross oceans, this yacht is the perfect platform to travel wherever the wind will take you. After a major refit in New Zealand and very lightly used since this yacht presents as much newer. Zen is ready to depart on her next adventure.

Descriptions

Construction

    Zen was constructed in South Africa by Bongers Marine. Epoxy resin and stitched uni-directional glass laminates with ATC Core-Cell foam core was used for the hulls. Decks, pilot house and major bulkheads are all epoxy/glass cored with PVC foam. This premium quality construction yields superior strength at low weight and has proven exceptionally durable and damage resistant over many decades of use in demanding offshore conditions. 

    The main crossbeams linking the hulls are composed of uni-directional carbon fiber laminates for maximum strength and stiffness. This also translates to a tighter headstay for better upwind performance.

    The dagger boards on Zen are cored fiberglass/epoxy construction passing through fiberglass/epoxy construction trunk with up and down controls leading back to the forward cockpit. The daggers exit the hull through a shallow fin built onto the hull. The fins protect the hull bottom, props and rudders from grounding damage and reinforce the daggerboard trunk minimizing the risk of damage.

    Zen's balanced spade rudders are fiberglass composite with solid Aquamet 19 rudder stocks supported with low friction bearings at hull entry.

    For added safety, both hulls on Zen are equipped with a collision bulkhead forward. In addition the engine room is separated from the accommodation space by a watertight bulkhead.

Hulls

Testimonial

Hi there Chris,

I hope you are well! I have been meaning to send you an email to update you on Resolute II - your first Atlalntic 48, and to thank you and give you some feedback on your design.

 I am writing this from sea, about 70 nm due south of the Galapagos Islands, on the way from Panama to the Marquesas. As i write the boat is rolling along at an average of about 9 knots in 16 knots of wind (9 apparent) at an apparent wind angle 100 degrees. I have up the cruising genoa and full main, and the boat is just loping along.

I am doing this leg (~4,000 nm) on my own, because I have always want to try solo sailing, and this seemed the perfect extended leg (nothing to hit!). One week in, i am enjoying it immensely and feel fresh and the boat (touch wood) is running perfectly.

Just to remind you, Resolute was built at Bongers in 2005, and I bought her in 2010. She has since sailed 34,000 miles, including sailing from Australia to the Caribbean via South Africa. We are now on our way back to Australia. Over 40 different friends have sailed on ocean passages, and 'Ressie' has a lot of friends. Remarkably, I think the boat is in much better condition now than when i bought it, and she is incredibly reliable. The engines still only have 2,600 hours on them.

I have been sailing with the World ARC (you may recall i came from Australia with them). This time, again, Ressie just romped away from a fleet which includes some very new and serious 55-60 foot monohulls and including Nica, a Finot Conq FC53 by Knierim that was featured in a recent Yachting World - a planing mono that is half racer and half very uncomfortable cruiser. Sailing Ressie seems just so effortless compared to these modern, very complex boats (e.g. Nica has all its lines running under a false deck.)...

Anyway, it is this kind of sailing that reminds me of what a truly brilliant design this boat is for long distance short handed blue water sailing. As a single handed cruiser, i just can't imagine a better compromise - this boat is very fast, dry, extremely reliable, safe and extremely easy to handle because of the centre cockpit. As you may recall, Resolute has a bowsprit and a furling genoa, and i absolutely love that cruising cutter rig (c.f. with the code zero options that most cats have). I carry the genoa in much stronger winds, and get the main reefed early and it makes for comfortable and very safe sailing at night.

I could - as you can see - go on. I find it so hard to reconcile, of course, with the designs of the new production cats which are just so luxurious, but awful to sail. I think perhaps the best way to describe it is that the people who are most impressed with Resolute (and most people are once they see the boat perform and then see how simple it is) are the mono hull sailors. It is a boat that the mono guys 'get' instantly. They see how seaworthy it is, they love that it doesn't look like a block of apartments, they sit in wonder as we glide past them at sea :)

warm regards Ken" ~ Provided by Chris White
