Adèle combines long overhangs, low freeboards, a flush deck and tall masts to provide pace with space. She carries a huge sail area on a narrow, easily driven hull. Her two masts allow for many sail combinations and make her well balanced in all winds. Adèle’s elegant interior style, which is also by Hoek Design Naval Architects.
