The Ron Holland designed scaled down version for the new Americas Cup Class yachts, 11:Metre One Design, offers real attraction for all sailors. Both pros and beginners find this maneuverable yacht exiting. Here is a yacht where sailing skills rather than acrobatic youthfulness is decisive.

"The 11:Metre is the most fun, the fastest and the least fragile amongst the new sportboats" is a common view amongst sailors that have tried most types of the new fast sailboats.

Fully battened main and a self-tacking jib makes it very easy to sail. Runners and checkstays only trims the rig upwind and is not needed for safety. The masthead spinnaker is carried on a oversized pole which makes downwind sailing a thrill. Acceleration is superior and she planes readily in moderate air. 

The deck layout makes it easy to sail. It includes hardware from the best suppliers in the world. A tabernacle for the mast makes it easy to step the mast without a crane. 

The interior is simple. But it can take your friend and family for a weekend cruise. Enjoy the life and relax on this fun sailboat. 

The class rule has a crew weight limit which allows everyone to race on equal terms, old against young, men against women. Hiking is not allowed. The 11:Metre is a very strict One-Design yacht. Good building methods with high class materials ensure a long life and a good second hand value.
