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.
