To create a successor to the Pogo 10.50 and its huge success, we have designed the Pogo 36, using all the experience gathered from the lastest models in the range.This boat is slightly longer and wider, providing more space for the crew. The philosophy of a simple, light, fast and easy to handle sailing boat has been retained. The deck is simple and ergonomic, all winches are installed on the coachroof to be at the ideal working height. Composite coachroof coamings remplace the fabric backrests. Again, there are two tillers at the back, that can be used both from the aft of the cockpit seats or from the sidedeck. A visible innovation resides in the exterior design : The shipyard required a view to the front from the saloon, which, combined with the new position of the bathroom, led us to design coachroof windows bending towards the centerline. The Pogo 36's "eyes" give it a rather radical style. Like all recent models of the range, the hull features a hard chine. It has been positionned as low as possible, the provide stability and power.
Another one of the new features is the bathroom located forward of the saloon, thereby providing space for two large aft cabins and a cabin in the front triangle.
The front volumes are quite full, to help the boat reach a nose-up attitude while planning. Several versions of the hull were tested in CFD (computational fluid dynamics) using the FINE/Marine software package, to choose the final hull shape. he backstay-less rig has only one set of spreaders and a square-top mainsail. Upwind sail area : 76 m2.
The carbon fiber mast is stepped quite far aft for a better balance of genoa and mainsail areas. This also increses the mainsail's aspect ratio for better performance.
The composite, 1090kg keel is lifting (rotating), like all the other boats of the range. A fixed keel version will also be offered.
