Judel/Vrolijk Design IRC72.
Project management – Peter Henderson / Rob Ouellette

Constructed – N.E.B 2012

It was a privilege that Rob O called in STAYINPHASE right at the very start of their program.  A very interesting process began to determine the best system layout.  With inspiration from Rolf Vrolijk, we created a system with broad versatility featuring twin pedestals mounted aft of the steering wheels.  Not seen before in the class, it’s a layout that provides a clear cockpit and logical power distribution when sailing inshore, yet really comes into its own offshore too.

The transmission below deck, featuring a number of significant assemblies designed & built by us, has evolved into a reliable and refined machine.  We also had the opportunity to provide some custom deck hardware, including organisers and spin sheet deflector blocks.
