Schionning Waterline 1480 MARGARITAVILLE
Description:

The Waterline 1480 is a long-hulled, high performance cruiser, with a Bruce number from 1.45 to almost 1.6 depending on her loading. The design is based on the Cosmos line of performance cruisers, with the hulls lengthened, bridgedeck raised and displacement reduced. The result is a slim-hulled ocean cruiser that is exciting to sail, very fast at passagemaking and has some scope for racing. The weight on such a boat must to be stricly manged so she can be sailed to her potential, and therefore she is not everyone's optimum cruiser - she has a payload of 1.8 tons, which is low for a 48 ft 6 in (14.8 m) cruiser. Still there are many experienced sailors who are looking for longer boats that they hope to keep light and so travel faster. At least four 1480s were under construction in 2005 by two professional yards and two home builders.

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.
