ASTUS 20.2 and its sport
model Astus 20.2S have been presented at the Paris Nautic 2009 exhibition.
Following to the
launching of Astus 20.1 in 2005 and of its 75 models production,
its successor has now arrived.
20.2 was born from the desire of
bringing improvement and of meeting your requirements.
The sailing programme is
the same as the 20.1 : the 20.2 is a transportable trimaran easy to move
from one place to an other one, can be used by one person or by a small team
for a one of several days raids and is also a family multicoque for a one
day outings (Day Boats)
The new model has more
modern shapes and more sport lines, and use again the concepts of the Astus
20.1 wich have been thoroughly tried and tested and to wich some
improvements were brought :
wiht many advantages.
Speed : an
outstanding weight/sail ratio : 24 m2 upwind for 350 kg.
water entries with the water deflectors stepped hull.
Stability : each
float makes 650 litres that's to say 150 litres more then the 20.1,
Width was also increased to reach 4.25 m.
Safety : the
central hull and the floats show a high floatbility potential.
Weak draught :
daggerboard and pivoting rudder, ideal for coast navigation and coming
alongside the beach.
Quick to flod and without any dismantlement
ashore or when sailing (to put in a catway).
A simple and
pragmatic use : easy to transport and to handle.
A 350 kg weight.
Telescopic floats wich
thanks to the cotter pins allow to pass from a 4.25 m to a 2.40 m width
and vice versa without being obliged to disantle the floats.
A mast easy to step up,
15 kg light, with a 7.50 m height.
On the 20.2, a lateral
mast position will allow an easy stepping of the mast.
A single person is able
to rig it and to launch it to water in less than 20 mn.
The advantage is obvious : possibility of changing place and of sailing
The vast 2.5 m cockpit
is protected by backs with lockers for the storage.
The position of the
front beams allows to easy enter the cabin.
Bigger trampolines of
2.75 m lenght, belong to the navigation sace, which reresents a total
surface including the cockpit of 11.5 m2
- The cabin with the bunk of 115 cm width and 220 cm lenght and
more ergonomic allows the storage of all the materials and can be a safe
shelter for the children.
- A front locker used as chain locker and where it is possible to store
The boatyard has chosen a
polyester contruction which allows a better cost production, and which is
resistant and easy to maintain.
