H-Boat sailing

most built keel yacht in the world

Excellent sailing characteristics

The H-Boat stands out first and foremost for its excellent sailing qualities. It is very easy to handle, and is also forgiving to beginners when errors are made. At the same time, its trim changes, for example, which are immediately noticeable, mean that it is highly regarded by experienced regatta sailors. When he designed this boat in 1967, Hans Groop created a truly successful compromise between reliable sailing qualities and sensitive trimming behaviour.

...even when winds are strong

The boat, which weighs just 1,450 kg, can also be sailed easily under five Beaufort, thanks to its high ballast share of 50%. In 2001, the seaworthiness of the H-Boat was proved by the Atlantic crossing made by Philipp Heisig and Kerstin Schmider.
