Flexible & Customised Sail Plan
With a total sail area of 138.5sqm, the Shogun’s sail plan has been designed and customised to harness all the speed and power she can for the style of sailing you want.
Whether sailing short-handed on a weekend trip or with a full crew in an offshore race, the sail plan is designed to optimize performance without compromising on ease and flexibility. It is the aim of our yachts to always feel fun to sail first and foremost, and we believe we have made that happen.
Unlike other similar yachts, the Shogun 50 has torn up the conventional Scandinavian rule book for sail plans. In a break from tradition, we have introduced self-tacking jibs onto the yacht despite them having never been previously possible as they were considered too small for the racing sailor or demanding cruising sailor.
On the Shogun 50 we have repositioned the mast and been able to radically increase the pre-triangle base, gaining us an effective self-tacker. Our modern, square top mainsail is still large enough to meet the needs for reefing and tuning. Plus, the fact we also have a large overlapping headsail that boosts the maximum speed significantly beyond the ORC letter's estimated speed, is naturally a bonus.
