Alegre 72

Alegre 72
Mark Mills Design IRC72.  Project Manager – Olly Cameron.

Constructed  – Longtud Cero Composites, Spain.  2013

For this project, we were approached by the Alegre team to heavily utilise components previously used on board a Version 5 America’s Cup yacht.  The emphasis was on a clean, intuitive layout, carefully integrated with the yachts structure.

Winches were totally reconditioned and given Keronite surfaces, then a fresh layer of clear-coat on the composites.  Harken gearboxes also fully rebuilt to replace worn gears & bearings.  Innovative new gearbox control linkages were built for use on twin driven pit winches and takedown system

Alegre-III was the first monohull to use STAYINPHASE pedestals , proving out the gains in rigidity & weight reduction we had engineered for.
