We have first information on the new model from the Solin shipyard
Salona 39 follows the design of her successful predecessor Salona 380 and even though her construction characteristics are similar, the new model is 300 kg lighter, the draft is shorter by 15 cm and by 10 cm wider.
Salona 39 has a very solid hull, as all the Salona models do due to a steel hull superstructure for which the shipyard has become well-known. The deck equipment is provided by Selden and Harken and all the ropes for the control of the sails are positioned discreetly below the deck, in the cockpit on 6 winches as a standard option.
Nowadays, almost all new vessels have rudders with two blades and it is quite curious that Salona Yachts have decided to keep the one blade on the new 39. Two blades definitely have certain advantages such reducing the resistance during the sailing, but when manoeuvring backwards one blade shows better performance.
Large tinted windows along almost the entire length of the cabin is an elegant touch. The biggest change is in the interior that is now made of white oak. Generally, the interior design is brighter what is a trend in the shipbuilding industry while cleverly arranged furniture provides more comfort and safe moving around the cabin while sailing.
Salona Yacht Shipyard has advanced in a past couple of years on several levels: the design of the interior has been meticulously developed and alternative powertrain has been introduced. Apart from diesel engines, Salona Yachts now offers the electric engine as a part of the standard specification. Last year, we were the first magazine in the world to test the first electric Salona 46 model ever.
We look forward to the newest addition from the shipyard and until she has been launched, take a look at the renderings that show, quite accurately, how the new sailboat looks like.
