To A New Paradigm With FPB

FPB 83 – Wind Horse

“…One of the coolest boats I have had the pleasure to spend time on.
-Bill Parlatore, Passagemaker Magazine

Let us take you on a tour of the FPB prototype, Wind Horse.

The fact that she has put 25,000 miles under her keel in her first 17 months of cruising says more than anything we could write about how well she does her job.

We’ll take you through her interior,

 

as well as her systems, and explain what makes the FPB such an efficient and easy to cruise design. You could say cruising aboard Wind Horse is child’s play.

Cruising is, after all, what these designs are intended for (definitely not sitting in marinas). That’s why so many of our yachts have circumnavigated, and why all those miles have enjoyably passed under Wind Horse’s bottom in such a short period of time.

    Among all the talk about the speed and great comfort where do I find speed vs RPM and fuel flow ? Data for calm water and no current is basic, and seas on bow would be interesting. In 18 videos i found only one point and that was surfing.

    There are various posts throughout SetSail which detail both theoretical and actual sea trial fuel burn data. For example http://setsail.com/fpb-64-3-sea-trial-runs-three-and-four/ for the FPB 64 during sea trials. We will have a post on fuel burn for a variety of passages on the 64 in a couple of weeks, as there have just been a variety of 1000 to 2200NM passages done.
