About the design

According to standards of Lloyds, the basis of the Sentijn 37IQ is a very strong construction. The hull is made of vinylester, which is stronger than GRP, scratch resistant and, very important, insensitive to osmosis.

For the construction vacuum injection is used. This Dutch technique produces a light and strong body because the resin can be accurately dosed. The hull has an Airex foam core that provides stiffness, strength and isolation.

The keel is of lead, L-shape with a deep center of gravity, which ensures a favorable initial stability and righting ability. The keel is fixed to a laminated galvanized steel keel frame that also supports the mast.

Small crew

The Sentijn 37IQ can be sailed by a small crew but the spacious cockpit van host up to 7 people. There is no bridge deck which makes the entry to the cabin easy. The ship sails comfortably, fast and in close hauled layline particularly high. It navigates very light and is easy to maneuver under sail and on the engine. All trim functions can be controlled from the cockpit.

The chain plates have been placed as far as possible to the outside of the hull, which gives a better distribution of forces on the hull and in combination with the keel frame, the construction is very strong. The rigged mast has a 9/10 rigging of Dyform.

The Sentijn has a comfortable spacious cockpit with wide side deks without obstacles. In the peak an electric anchor winch is mounted below deck and also the drum of the furling jib. On the bow solid anchor fittings are installed with a Bruce anchor. There is also a possibility for a carbon bowsprit to use a gennaker.
