We love innovation, no matter how wacky!! This folding stern section maxi is from designer Pieter van Geest and he explains the stern: There will be special pantograph hinges installed with hydraulic cylinders integrated.
If the doors are in the up position they will be locked in place by a big hydraulic pin coming from the vertical joint.
These need to be locked for sailing conditions. Here’s the view from astern, Further on it is pretty much push button sailing and there is plenty of space for anybody or anything you want to bring along.
The project is a pure concept proposal at the moment but we will develop it further in the coming months.
