Camping is a pleasurable yachting activity that enables people to visit beautiful and pristine lagoons, rivers, canals, lakes and marine reserves. The water in these places is often very shallow and there are no landing stages. This calls for a type of vessel suitable for coastal yachting and navigating inland waters. A small yacht can be considered ideal for this purpose. The concept proposed is a small trailerable sailboat for camping, with special performance, from both the naval and ergonomic point of view. This concept introduces the ideas of easy management of the sailing performance, housing activity, beaching and transportation, and an insight into the tactile pleasure of the deck surfaces. This first phase of the research reports a series of critical reflections related to the conscious design of small yachts, taking into account of various aspects: the environmental contex, onboard activities, out-board activities and general management of the yacht.

Abstract

Camping is a pleasurable yachting activity that enables people to visit beautiful and pristine lagoons, rivers, canals, lakes and marine reserves. The water in these places is often very shallow and there are no landing stages. This calls for a type of vessel suitable for coastal yachting and navigating inland waters. A small yacht can be considered ideal for this purpose. The concept proposed is a small trailerable sailboat for camping, with special performance, from both the naval and ergonomic point of view. This concept introduces the ideas of easy management of the sailing performance, housing activity, beaching and transportation, and an insight into the tactile pleasure of the deck surfaces. This first phase of the research reports a series of critical reflections related to the conscious design of small yachts, taking into account of various aspects: the environmental contex, onboard activities, out-board activities and general management of the yacht.
