Specific Features

Hull Design: The Bladerider is 3.355m in overall length with a fine bow, straight rocker, flat bottom, square chines and low freeboard. Volume has been kept in the stern for a cleaner lift-off.

Hull Construction: Vacuum infused 3k carbon foam sandwich hull with a white gel-coat finish and a aluminium wing cover track. The cockpit grip is an aggressive non-slip material, stuck on for easy replacement later on if necessary.

Wing Frame : The new carbon tube wing frame with moulded corners not only helps reduce the overall cost of the boat, but it also improves the durability and stiffness of the whole structure dramatically. The wing covers are made from reliable Dacron material with internal air bags to help beginners with capsize recovery. In addition the unique self-tensioning design, allows for a very quick assembly out of the box.

Hydrofoils: Black two piece, high-lift pre-preg carbon hydrofoils fitted to pre-preg carbon centerboard and rudder, purpose-designed for lowest drag and maximum lift. These are also the same foils that hold all the fastest speeds ever recorded on a foiler Moth!

Rudder Gantry: The supplied gantry will be made from anodised aluminium tubes. Strong and durable.

Rig: A stiff 50mm mast is supplied giving more power and better control of the head in the sail. The gooseneck of the boom has also been improved for better fitting and clearing of the downhaul pulleys.

Sail: Comes with a one design 8.0m Bladerider sail (International Moth compliant) made from X-ply and Dacron. The sail material and finish has been dramatically improved in 2008 to give a smoother sail shape and make it longer lasting.

Spreaders: The supplied spreaders/prodder will be made from anodised aluminium tubes. Strong and durable.

Rope & Fittings: Complete Ronstan fitout including new Orbit mainsheet blocks along with FSE Robline ropes.

Foil Covers: The RX hydrofoil covers, top cover, mast cover, boom cover and spreaders cover are optional extras.

Trolley: The boat comes with an all new alloy trolley with quick elastic hooks.

Warranty: Comes complete with a two year warranty.
