Matiti Exterior Bow.jpgRIGGING and SAILPLAN

Fractional sloop rig.
All standing and running rigging refitted in 2009
Stainless steel 12mm fore- and backstays and 10mm diamondstays.
Selden aluminum mast 17.80m off deck.
A fully battened mainsail and a roller-furling genoa (2010). Profurl genoa roller-furler. Asymmetric spinaker 105m2. Symmetric spinaker 75m2. 4 Andersen winches, 2 electric. 1 Electric Harken winch.
All halyards and sheets controlled from the cockpit. Single-handed sailing possible


Hulls are built with Twaron reinforced fiberglass foam sandwich, decks and cabin with thick solid fiberglass.
Lock Crowther designed asymmetric hulls with daggerboards creating better upwind performance and shallow draft.
The relatively high bridgedeck clearance above the water reduces wave bumps.
Plenty of storage for lines, jerrycans, fenders and anchor winch with 75m galvanized steel anchor chain. 4 Lockers before the mast, 2 under the cockpit floor and 1 under the cockpit seat against the bulkhead.  



At port-side of the cockpit (3.75m x 2.80m) a teak table with seats around for many.
A canvas bimini covering the cockpit protects against UV and bad weather.
A windgenerator and a angle adjustable  rack with 6 x 85-Watt solar panels are part of the bimini construction.
The hypalon Caribe dinghy is hooked on stainless steel davits.
Twin steering columns with ample view around under sail as well as in harbor maneuvering. Engine controls at the port-side steering stand.
Transoms with steps. A swing ladder and fresh water shower at port-side. From the transom steps an easy access to the dinghy.   






Madeleine has a roomy bridgedeck saloon (3.10m x 4.70m) with a big folding table and a U-format comfortable bench seating 8.
Standing headroom 1.80m.
At starboard the navigation station with chart table, control panels, instruments, SSB radio and radar.
The galley is located against the bulkhead facing abaft enabling communication with the cockpit through a hatch in the window.
Curved windows around with 4 opening hatches for ventilation.
From the cabin while seated there is a 360 degrees panoramic view.


Aft port cabin.jpgPORT-SIDE HULL (from bow to stern)

Forward a shed with a work bench and storage for tools and spare parts.
Amidships a double bed cabin with closets and a separate sanitary room with toilet and shower.
Aft of this, midship access steps to the bridgedeck saloon with storage space abreast.
Next comes a second double bed cabin with closets and its own separate sanitary room with head and shower.
Astern ample access to the engine room.
All spaces mentioned have solid access doors.
All rooms are well ventilated by deck and side hatches.



Located astern in both hulls the engine rooms are accessed bij solid sound proofed doors. At sea this inside through hull access is much safer than outside access solutions.
Both engine rooms contain (apart from the engines) the diesel powered Webasto air heater and the hydraulic steering system connected to the rudder heads.
Port engine room: autopilot connection to the rudder head.
Starboard engine room: 30L hot water boiler, antenna tuner for the SSB radio, regulators for solar pannel and wind generator.


Two 30Hp fresh water cooled Volvo Penta  D1-30B diesels with 130S-B sail drives and folding 3-blade bronze propellers, installed 02-10-2007.

As in the port-side hull all rooms enclosed with solid doors and ventilated with deck and side hatches.

Standing headroom in both hulls: 1.90m



The galley-up configuration (in the bridgedeck saloon) with the galley facing the bulkhead window offers many benefits: lots of daylight, communication with anyone in the saloon and cockpit, a service hatch to pass items to and from the cockpit. Separate LED lights above a counter with double sinks with fresh hot and cold water and a separate foot pump for pumping up salt water. A propane gas marine cooker with 2 burners and an oven. Isotherm top loading refrigerator with freezing compartment. Lots of counter-space and many cabinets.
The fresh water tank holds 140L (37 gallons).
A watermaker driven by the port-side diesel engine makes 60L (16 gallons) fresh water in an hour giving the option to save on carry-on weight of water in the tank.

Sanitary sinks with cabinets and mirrors.
Four showers. Pump driven shower drains.
Day light and ventilation hatches in all four door enclosed sanitary rooms.
