The dry exhaust also prevent from pumping sea water into the boat. It is also extremely silent. These concepts have operated perfectly well on YANKEE since 1960. The exhaust pipe is boxed in a duct from the manifold to the stern, air cooled by 2 fans in engine room.

All rigging, spares and every component is OVERSIZE for maximum safety and reliability. All standing rigging on main mast is 1/2". Sail plan is spread fore and aft to keep aspect ratio low for more comfortable cruising and better sails efficiency.
Sail-cover over both booms. When masts are lowered they rest on top of both tabernacles, out of the way and 8 ft. above cockpit floor for full headroom. 2 WALDER boom break.
Hull & Under body:
Rounded hull in high tensile CORTEN steel. ( CORTEN is a U.S. Steel patent contain chrome, nickel, molybdenum...making it atmospherically rustproof. This high grade steel is twice as strong as ordinarily used Siemens Martin steel, which is much cheaper and easier to work with. )
Keel sole is 1" thick. Keel sides ( skegg ) are 3/8" thickness. Hull from keel to 1 ft. above waterline is 1/4" and topsides 5mm thickness. Decks are 4mm. Centreboard is a 1 1/2" thick CORTEN steel blade 10 ft long pivoting on a 2" diameter hard S.S. axis and weighting 3000 lbs. Centreboard casing is made of 3/8" CORTEN steel.
All this siding is welded to 3" angle stein frames 16' apart throughout from bow to stern for maximum strength, making SAGESSE the strongest vessel afloat anywhere as far as he know said Dutch top naval architect Mr. van de Meer who came with SAGESSE's designer Mr. W. de VRIES LENTSCH and the press to assist at the launch of the hull by the Dutch yard.
A floating fortress,... stronger than an Icebreaker they said ! Years of research went in the concept of SAGESSE, amalgamating the best features from yachts of all nationalities belonging to experienced circumnavigators like captain Irving JOHNSON, Eric HISCOCK, Philip JEANTOT, Marcel BARBIAUX, Eric TABARLY, Olivier de KERSAUZON and others. The hydrodynamic lines of SAGESSE, despite the above water comfortable cruising look, give the hull an ease of entry and fluidity in the water that have surprised many when on board, as well as the sea kindness.
All bulkheads are CORTEN stein with continuous weld. Sump at foot of each companionway to act as holding tank for used shower water.
DOUBLE BOTTOM up to 1 ft above the waterline from bow to engine room?s aft bulkhead, wi
|Many individual tanks, integral to hull, some as fuel tank, some as water tank, some as floatation tank.
Lead ballast melted in keel. Fairleads build into the bulwark, S.S. lined. 4" wide CORTEN & S.S. rub rail all around ad strength & protection. Weight empty about 30 metric tons.

This vessel has been built for me at no cost sparing.
Please note that SAGESSE features can only be appreciated by an experienced sea-going sailor.
A recreation yachtsman will not be able to recognise the features, the versatility, the exceptional ruggedness.
