Ijmuiden, about 30 kilometers north of Amsterdam, is home to Saffier Yachts, a shipyard specializing in daysailing boats, which recently unveiled a new “gem,” the Saffier SE 24. The brainchild of the Hennevanger brothers, Dean and Dennis, who with their father Richard are the founders of the shipyard, the Saffier SE 24 is a small, totally eco day sailer, as it will be powered only by electric propulsion.

Solar panels placed on the deckhouse in front of the mast.

The solar panels are custom-made and integrated to be one with the design of the boat, creating a clean deck layout and generating enough power to constantly charge the Torqeedo’s 3.5 kW battery for propulsion.

The boat will then be lightweight, just 1200 kilograms with over 400 in ballast, and have a powerful sail plan, the ideal characteristics in short to consume little energy and use propulsion at a minimum. After all, this is precisely Saffier’s philosophy: to make boats that need the engine only to get in and out of the berth, and then to sail even in the breezes, as we had observed when testing the Saffier 37

The bow of this Saffier is inverted, a feature that appears for the first time in the Dutch shipyard’s production. The deckhouse is barely noticeable and very low on the deck, and gone is the rigid sprayhood that was present in previous models. A minimalist boat but with a lot of attention to detail, such as in the organization of the rigging, which is designed to sail even solo with a well-organized layout.
