A real sailing boat

The deck layout of the Nutshell 26 is also flexible. The simple Uni-rig means the deck is not cluttered and this leaves lots of side deck and trampoline areas to play

  1. Main solar panels 4 x 350W – these are glass fronted and framed panels out of the way of everything
  2. Additional optional solar panels on the pull-out roof panels. Two of these add a further 4 x 240W for a total of 2,36KW (theoretical)
  3. A standard SUP board fits over the foredeck – together with space along the deck-edges you get to take a lot of toys with you
  4. The optional Code0 sheets to the side-deck, right aft, and from there down to a deck-block and onto the winch at the mast. This sail is flown loose from the upper-most halyard
  5. The standard Genoa sheets feed aft around the back of the roof and down to a deck-block. It is completely self-tacking and rolls away onto a furling forestay
  6. Trampoline material fills the foredeck and keeps everybody safe. A great place to sun-bathe
  7. Deck hatches allow storage of more toys. Below these are sealed buoyancy compartments that make the boat unsinkable
  8. The deck shower can be used to rinse-off with hot fresh water
  9. The roller furler rope runs along the starboard side. It can be lead to the winch but mostly will be pulled by hand
  10. A passarel or gang-plank stores over the rope bins aft and is hoisted up to the spreaders. A tie-off system raises it above reach and it can be locked in that position. Great for stern-to moorings in the Med.
  11. Fenders drop-down to come alongside low walls or floating docks. In the stored position they still protect the boat from damage and allow other boats to raft-up alongside
