Saffier SC 6.50 Cruise
THE NEW SAFFIER SC 6.50 CRUISE – PHILOSOPHY AND DESIGN.
The Saffier 6.50 Cruise is to a state-of-the- art modern daysailer while still keeping those beautiful classic hull lines intact.
DENNIS HENNEVANGER ON THE NEW SC 6.50 CRUISE:
We took our time to design her. The old 6.50 has quite a legacy in Holland as being a very seaworthy boat and we certainly wanted to keep that intact.
The hull is one aspect of her seaworthiness and keeping the righting moment the same was important. With the new keel shape, and these days being able to put the center of gravity much lower in the keel, we ended up with 20% less weight in the keel with an even better righting moment.
Along with the new rudder and new rig she has much more performance, especially going upwind. The rig has a large mainsail and a self-tacking jib. Furthermore she can easily be fitted out with a furling code zero sail. This provides a very effective way of getting more sail area downwind or on a reach and the handling is as simple as a furling jib.
Beautiful classic lines combining technology of today
A large cockpit layout for 6 persons to sit comfortably
Super easy to operate and sail by the helmsman alone
easy setting of the sails, with self-tacking jib and code zero furler sail
A modern design of the rig in combination with a bulb keel and a deep spade rudder
very seaworthy, with a ballast ratio of 50%
diesel engine or electrical propulsion when not sailing
Flexiteek teak decking, no maintenance and great looks
SOLO OR WITH 6 PERSONS
With the new deck and cockpit there is much more space and the seating is much more comfortable; she is also very easy for one person to control and sail alone sitting at the helm, which is a real benefit.
What I particularly like are the small, almost hidden details, such as integrated cup holders and boxes to store your halyards and control lines.
Inside there is also considerable improvement. A lot of space has been created and access is very easy. The design will appeal to a broad range of people who are looking for a simple-to-sail open yacht, with beautiful lines and all the comfort and performance you expect from a modern daysailer.

Ex open dinghy sailors who want to keep just that feeling but with the comfort of a toilet and cooking facilities, a seaworthy cockpit, lots of space inside and a Yanmar diesel engine will certainly appreciate this design.
COMFORTING AND RELAXING
Just as all the other Saffiers the Saffier Sc 8 m Cabin can be controlled by one person -on engine or sail- alone. The reason why is that the controls for the
engine, but also the sheets and halyards of the sails are all in reach of the helmsmen who can stay safe in the cockpit while trimming and adjusting the sails. The self-tacking jib makes tacking or gybing a maneuver which the Helmsmen can decide when to perform without asking his crew to move around in the cockpit. Your family will find the high stability, spacey room inside and functionality of this ultimate weekend sailor comforting and relaxing.

Saffier SE 37 Lounge
EVERYTHING YOU WISH. AND MORE.
The Saffier SE 37 Lounge. A yacht that does not meet a standard, but a yacht that sets a standard: the standard of the Saffier SE 37 Lounge. A unique concept without compromise. Why choose when you don’t have to choose?
MEET THE NEW STANDARD
A boat that combines great sailing potential with ease of handling. A boat you will be able to control on your own – always and in all circumstances. A boat that combines all the luxury of a true sailing yacht with the feeling of sailing a dinghy. A boat without borders: it has a cabin, but there is no real ‘inside’. A boat that is not only fantastic to sail, but that is also a fantastic place to be at anchor or in the harbour.
EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL
The unique position of the helmsman at the front of the cockpit is one of the key-features in the Saffier Lounge concept. At the back of the cabin the helmsman has a cockpit of his own. Here he is able to oversee the complete boat and has access to all the lines to trim and control the sails. Sailing the Saffier SE 37 Lounge is childs play, but it has nothing to do with the potential of this boat. Upwind the boat will get to hull speed in the blink of an eye. Downwind the bowsprit makes it possible to sail a huge Code 0 or gennaker of over 100 m². With those sails the Saffier SE 37 Lounge will reach speeds far above its hull speed – a sensational experience!
ALL THE SPACE YOU NEED
By putting the wheels in front of the cockpit, the cockpit itself is enormous and completely free of lines. In fact, the old fashioned name ‘cockpit’ does not suit this spacious feature on the Saffier SE 37 Lounge. It has become a real lounge place. Fitted out with comfortable seats and luxury cushions where your family and friends can enjoy sailing the best way possible.
Not only while sailing this is a great place to be. At anchor or in the harbour it is easily converted into a real terrace on the water. Again: with just one button. A push on the button lifts the integrated cockpit table out of the floor. A huge table, where at least ten people can have a seat.
ALL THE COMFORT YOU NEED
On board the Saffier SE 37 Lounge there is no real border between ‘outside’ and ‘inside’. Thanks to the wide cabin entrance and a minimal level difference the transition between outside and inside is completely fluid and natural. Because of the application of carbon a main bulkhead is unnecessary. Therefore the inside of the cabin is completely open and light.
Inside you find all the comfort you need. There is a little coffee corner, a galley, the head, luxury seats, headroom and a huge double bed in the front. And, last but not least, there is a lot of storage space. At anchor or in the harbor it is easily converted into a real terrace on the water. A push on the button lifts the integrated cockpit table out of the floor. A huge table, where at least ten people can have a seat.
