A Sustainable Project
Originally inspired by Craig’s the Southern Ocean and offshore sailing adventures, where he witnessed first hand the negative effects of man’s wast pollution on our living planet.
The project objectives have been set to develop a sustainable, safe ocean-going yacht design, that could be constructed from eco-sustainable materials.
After a 12-year period of research, testing and custom design the project is progressing to the prototype build phase of hull X0.
Environmental friendly by design
The Class Xero takes the bio- principle to another level, designed to be constructed from recycled pallets and compressed coffee grounds overlayed with a unidirectional composite Flax fibre, infused with Bio-based epoxy resin and finished off with Radial cut sails a cut that time has shown outlast most traditional alternatives.
Some may consider the Class Xero too small for an ocean adventure but head out to sea in the knowledge our designers have considered ISO 12217-2 Class B offshore requirements throughout the design process.
The Angle of Vanishing Stability.
Class Xero designers have ensured self-righting characteristics comes as standard.
Positive lateral righting moment curves demonstrate the Class Xero is unique in its class.

Safety Vs Performance.
Whatever your prefered angle of heal is the Class Xero’s unique hull form ensures its displacement hull speed is maintained.
