The Rondar ENTERPRISE
2 World Championship and 3 National Champoinships 1st place titles.Designed by Jack Holt in 1956, the Enterprise has become one of the largest classes in the world and certainly a very popular racing class in the UK. It is a strict One Design, suited to crew of all sizes and ages and ideal for both training or racing. The Enterprise became recognised by the ISAF as an International Class in 1971, increasing its popularity. World Championships are held at exciting venues, including Hong Kong, Ireland, Thailand, India and Zimbabwe.
CHARACTERISTICSThe Enterprise is ideal for close tactical sailing, with a powerful rig offering outstanding performance, especially off wind in breezy conditions. In the event of a capsize, bailers and transom flaps quickly exhaust the water allowing the crew to return to the race. The Enterprise can be easily trailed and managed onshore.
CONSTRUCTIONThe Rondar Enterprise hull is based on a mould taken from the World Championship winning boat. In 2010 the class approached Rondar Raceboats and the two organisations worked together to produce a new modern deck and internal design to enable better and stronger construction in composite materials. While doing so the layout and look has been change to help with buoyancy and drainage after a capsize.
High density foam sandwich cores and extensive use of advanced construction systems for the hull produce a craft that is unequalled in terms of panel stiffness and strength for its weight. The deck moulding incorporates side buoyancy tanks, thwarts and capping into one rigid moulding to promote overall stiffness.
