Idea und Interiordesign: Jan Schümann
In the performance of the new Carrera 61 Helmsman-Yachts endeavor very much realizing mostly all options of safe, fast and also comfortable sailing.
This dream-yacht is designed for longtime- and long distance sailing. Not many people are blessed to realize this special dream. 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 61 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. This is confirmed by owners of helmsman yachts, which partially are 15 years old or more.
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 61 also is perfect for racing. She has excellently sailqualities and light handling at all courses to the wind. All important trim opportunities are available. During the time of planning of the "61er" 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 :
Helmsman-Yachts will not be neagtive influeced by serial-production, istead of that individual cutomer wishes will 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.
