Winglets (maybe we should call them “finlets”) at the tip of the fin reduce turbulence and drag by preventing water on the high pressure side from swirling around to the low pressure side. Racing sailboats use the same technique on their keels, and airplanes on wingtips. Note also the guard to keep weed and other debris from getting jammed between fin and hull.
We scoured the industry to find out what builders have on the boards and in the factory. Check out five new projects from Everglades, Bonadeo, Azimut, Sabre, and Viking, plus updates on boats we’ve covered in the past. Click here for the full story. ▶
