Irus 5.50: high-tech dinghy

Launch : 2008
Designer : Guillaume Verdier


“The boat is 2,2 metres wide (4,7 metres wide including wings), and boasts the same righting moment as a Tornado Sport, with which it shares the same deck hardware and wingmast. The total weight, ready to sail, is 170 kg, for a construction in EGlass – Epoxy resin and carbon reinforcements.
