CoCoBe B.V. is the home of the famous ROMILLY and ROXANE, two modern classics from the board of Nigel Irens. Fast trailarable GRP luggers with eye catching looks. Balanced-lug yawl, carbon-fibre spars, low centre of gravity free standing rig. Their narrow waterlines together with a high ballast ratio (around 50 per cent) and profiled cast iron centre-board make sailing these two sisters an absorbing and enduring experience.

 

“Draft is so important... I’ve always found it an amusing paradox that the richer you are , the bigger your boat, the more it draws, and the fewer places it can take you”
