Designed by naval architects Joubert and Nivelt, and produced in accordance with the shipyard’s construction traditions, the Tofinou 8 is a modern sailboat with a classic and timeless line. Performing well under a light wind or a breeze, the Tofinou 8, with its responsive helm, offers sensations similar to those of a sport dinghy, easy to manoeuvre alone or with a small crew. The hull of the Tofinou 8, marked by its straight bow and very flat stern lines, is very stable and excellent at any points of sail. In its “pivoting keel” version, its draught varies from 1.9 meters to less than 90 cm, which allows navigation close to the beach or in a shallow cove, entrance to the port at low tide, and even to run aground. In its “fixed keel” version, the draught of the Tofinou 8 is of 1.7 meters.
