Schionning Waterline 1320 MCMOGGY

The Waterline 1320 is a light, fast ocean cruiser intended for experienced sailors who are happy to keep the weight of the boat low so they may have outstanding sailing performance. Her maximum payload is 1.5 tons, about a half a ton less than the slower Schionning cats of the same length. She has low drag, slender hulls with a length-to-beam ratio of 13.5:1. These are easily driven by her modest rig and she accelerates rapidly. Long hull overhangs give good fore and aft stability, making her very safe off the wind.

Below decks there is a comfortable cabin forward in each hull with a queen sized double berth. The aft cabin in the starboard hull is a 'dive in' with sitting headroom.

The cockpit is efficient and uncluttered. A radial mainsail track runs round the back of wrap-around seating, and all sail control lines run to a central winch station. The cockpit is shaded by a fixed bimini. To view of the mainsail when sailing, or mostly when raising and lowering it, a large hatch which slides forward will open up the roof. This also allows one to stand at the controls with head and shoulders above the roof when steering in and out of marinas etc. The double helmsman's seat can be raised or lowered to see above the roof or through the windows forward.

The Waterline range
The Waterline range, like the boats in the Cosmos line on which they are based, are slim-hulled, lightweight cruisers intended for fast ocean sailing. The Waterlines go a step further towards high performance than the Cosmos cats, with finer (lower drag) hull forms, stricter weight control in design and lower payload. Although designed primarily for fast cruising with roomy accommodation and a full compliment of long-range cruising or liveaboard facilities, these excellent performers can be racers successfully.

The long hull 'overhangs' (part of the hull that extends beyond the bridgedeck) make the Waterline cats very well balanced, lean and delicate looking. They are designed for serious sailors who are prepared to be weight conscious so to enjoy extra performance. In the interest of weight saving, the only option for constuction is balsa cored Durakore planking.
