MODERN HIGH PERFORMANCE CRUISING YACHT IN ALUMINIUM WITH RETRACTABLE KEEL.
The aluminium IMAGE series of yachts has given blue-water sports a new dimension. As far as speed, safety and comfort are concerned, these yachts are ahead of their time. Designed for intensive sailing pleasure they can be sailed with an open or a closed centre cockpit under all weather conditions.
Wherever you wish to sail, the widest oceans or - thanks to the retractable keel - also in shallow inland waterways, your IMAGE 47 will not fail.
The specially designed doghouse contributes to the crew's comfort, without influencing the sailing characteristics. The double steering is perfectly suitable for people who want to sail frequently, even under extreme circumstances. The IMAGE 47 is also easily operated from the cockpit position. Thanks to well-positioned deck hardware, this IMAGE 47 can be easily handled by just two persons.
The layout of the IMAGE 47 is the result of years of designing, building and sailing - many improvements are also based on the feedback of our clients. The main goal of the concept is the combination of the spacious interior volume below deck together with the double cockpit configuration on deck. When the centre cockpit is closed, a second level of interior is created with the same comfort as down below. The large window area and the raised seating position provide a panoramic view. Compared with a deck saloon configuration this solution is much more flexible with regard to adapting to the weather conditions.
