In the performance of the new Carrera 49 Helmsman-Yachts endeavor very much realizing mostly all options of safe, fast and also comfortable sailing.

This yacht is honored because of light handling, best sailquality, fast speed, stability and safety.

The usage of considered details allows the owner to lead the yacht safely and simply at the steering-pedestals, alone or with more hands. For this use there can be set a selftackling jib instead of the genoa. All halyards, tack tackles and sheets are lead into the cockpit and can be serviced from the steering-pedestals. In that way also the winches are located. To have respect for a " too large yacht " concerning the Carrera 49 is unsubstantially. The same as with all others Helmsman yachts.

Helmsman yachts on the whole are performanced to individual wishes of the customers, as far as possible.

First criterion for Helmsman-Yachts is quality. Quality, not quantity, is the credo. Because of that Helmsman yachts are very stable in value.

Also concerning the performance beneath deck the customer is able to realise own wishes, as far as posssible.

We offer diverse keel-versions, also a liftkeel-version. By means of that the yachts easyly can be adapted to the different sailing usages.

The new Carrera 49 also is perfect for racing. She has excellently sailqualities and light handling at all courses to the wind. All important trim opportunities, adjusters, tack tackles a.s.o. are available. During the time of planning of the "49er" Helmsman-Yachts took care for making applicative every hidden spaces for storage.

On deck there are 4 lockers. These offer a lot of space for fenders, lines a.s.o.. Near to the steering-pedestals are located 3 more 60 - 100 cm deep lockers for storage of :
liferaft, rubber-dinghi, sails, dynamo, watermaker a.s.o..

Helmsman-Yachts will not be neagtive influenced by serial-production, instead of that individual cutomer wishes can be realized, as far as possible. Although we can offer this yachts at very interesting prices. For customers, who dislike the relative open sternarea, we can offer a second conventional, closed version with any mor storage lockers.

All Carrera- models are made with Epoxy-FRP, with inner foam layers, reinforced by dual-directional glassmats. This performance is rather costly, but in this way higher solidity at lower weight can be achieved.

All Helmsman yachts are built in accordance to the guidelines of Germanischer Lloyd. The rudder bearings are made with high quality glidebearings, fixed to the hull.

Helmsman yachts are exclusively equipped with high quality products of famous manufacturers.
