TP52 2015

This striking design introduces our latest ideas, concepts, technology advances and race success from the HPR grand prix arena into this established class.

Having been involved in multiple MedCup and World Champions designs over the years we look forward to re-entering the class with some new concepts. We are currently developing a ground breaking design package for the new 2015 TP52 rule. We have welcomed the changes proposed in the new rule which push for higher performance and helps keep the Super Series at forefront of monohull development, seemingly inspired by recent HPR developments.

Recent high performance racing yachts from CDP like the C40 MKI, C40 MKII, and C47 and the C 60 are dual HPR and IRC optimised boats which push the performance envelope and challenge the conventional IRC grand prix optimised design thinking Using our in house software and extensive ongoing hydro and aero research and development, we have ensured that these lighter higher performance boats are in fact very successful under IRC/ORCi and arguably, these boats have and continue to change the current grand prix design landscape between 40-100feet.

With this in mind, the rule update plays to our strengths, and critically allows us to utilise the HP-IRC CFD and performance prediction tools we have been developing over the years. This, along with a very successful background in TP52 and GP42 classes allows us to use lessons learned in these projects to create a very competitive and refined package for 2015.

We are currently deep in the development phase, assessing hull forms and variations, alongside the new appendage configurations. In parallel we are working on updating our aerodynamic models which directly influence key hydro and rig design decisions. Simultaneously we are working on the deck layout with a view to improving ergonomics, sail handling, and reducing windage and VCG.

More information to follow soon.
