The fruit of the experience


Designed by D.Z. Bombigher.

Improved performance

merry-dream-302-202Being one of the latest creations of the architect, Merry Dream benefited from his experience. Same size as the 38/40, similar master beam and draft, Daniel here designed a boat with a very elegant traditional look, but also ready to compete with modern racing sailboats.

In comparison with the 38/40, she is 40% lighter, carries 30% more sails area upwind and has a ballast ratio of 50% ... Having closely followed the project from the beginning, we found it rather “extreme”. But Daniel immediately considered a “wiser” version which has been finalized by Herve Coutand, his successor.
