Botin & Partners TP52. Project Manager – Olly Cameron.
Constructed – Longitud Cero Composites, Spain. 2015.
STAYINPHASE designed this winch system for the Alegre Team, following a brief from Olly for a layout that incorporates many of our latest developments, but keeps functional simplicity and low weight as highest priorities.
Alegre-IV is fitted with the ground breaking, patented M2-PPD gearbox within the pedestals. Both saving a tremendous amount of weight and significantly reducing friction compared to alternatives. This type of equipment & thinking facilitates benefits throughout the system.
This yacht, together with RAN-6 was the first TP52 to feature our mechanically automated tripping system for the takedown drum ratchet. Some yachts choose to run ratchets, others not, but the main reason for not using them is a lack of control and dependability.
