New model from Sydney Yachts
Sydney Yachts has commissioned Ker Design to create a new series of performance orientated yachts. The new GTS37 is the first model to be released, with an exciting new range to be announced in the coming months. Jason Ker has designed the GTS37 with the performance orientated sailor in mind.
The new Sydney GTS37 is fast, safe and comes equipped with a fully fitted interior. Engineered to ISO standards, Category A. The design features a large open cockpit with twin helm positions. The interior is comfortable and practical with three double cabins, a fully enclosed head and a well appointed galley and navigation area. There is ample storage space for cruising and the practical interior is perfect for racing, both round the buoys or offshore. A refined double spreader rig with non-overlapping headsails ensures the GTS37 is easy to handle. It is responsive and a pleasure to sail. This easy to sail format translates to less crew during racing and effortless cruising when short-handed.
Research and Development
Using the extensive Americas Cup technology at its disposal Ker Design continues to develop an improved understanding of the science of yacht performance. The hull shape used for the Sydney GTS37 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. The final shape selected for the new Sydney GTS37 has shown to be very efficient.
