IJMUIDEN ~ In Europe’s recent years of slump, Dennis Hennevanger’s timeless daysailers kept finding customers. “In those days of slump,” he says, “our sales of Saffiers just kept rising!” In 2014, Hennevanger’s Saffier Yachts is marketing a very special model. The Saffier 33 Se UD (it stands for Ultimate Daysailer), is a lightning-fast daysailer that offers speed in combination with the remarkable finish and luxury for which Saffier Yachts is known.

The Saffier Se 33 UD will premier at Amsterdam’s HISWA in-Water show in September. It is a daysailer that will do 16, 17 knots, says Hennevanger, Saffier Yachts’ owner. “It has a powerful rig, a fast underwater hull and modern keel. There’s a fixed carbon bowsprit for a code zero foresail. Vacuum building makes the Saffier Se 33 UD a light and fast yacht while sailing in comfort.”

Hennevanger markets two interiors. The ‘family’ version sleeps 4 and has cooking facilities with a fridge and lockers in the center of the boat. The roomier ‘lounge’ version features a large luxury bed forward, 2 lounge seats with back rests, a dedicated toilet room on port side and cooking facilities on starboard.

Saffier Yachts has built over 450 luxury daysailers in the past 15 years. Hennevanger says he has already sold 11 Saffier-33 Se UDs. His yachts come in 6 basic models (from 23 to 33ft) that respond to changing market conditions. “We see people who have sailed in cabin yachts of up to 50 ft. They don’t want that anymore. Too much work. Too much upkeep. They want to scale down in size, but not comfort. But, frankly, also young people, newcomers to sailing, come to us. They, too, want comfort in a boat, but no maintenance hassles.

The Saffier Se 33 UD can be sailed by the helmsman alone. The vacuum building technique makes the yacht fast and light. There is a self-tacking jib. Sheets and halyards run to the helm station where they can be handled manually or on electrical winches. The cockpit accommodates up to 10 people. The folding transom provides easy access to the water.
