Exocet

Exocet

Type: Moth
Designed by: Simon Maguire
Built: 2013

Take decades of boat-building knowledge, add one renowned Moth designer and a handful of the UK’s elite Moth sailors. What do you get? Exocet: the race-winning, high-performance and ultra-controllable International Moth produced by master boatbuilder Simon Maguire, owner of Hampshire-based Maguire Boats.

In 2013, the first Exocet was born and it has been in development ever since. Innovation never sleeps in the Moth class and Team Exocet work continuously to make refinements to both hull and foil design, fine-tuning their creation to reach higher speeds and improve performance and ease of use.

What makes the Exocet so special is that, while reaching top speeds, she remains very controllable,” explains Simon. “And that comes down to her build quality, stiffness and good design.”

“Together, we’ve produced a boat whose hull, wings and foils are all very stiff and this translates into controllable speed,” explains Simon. “The Exocet foils very early and is easy to tack and gybe – even in strong winds. All of this means she’s easier to sail than the competition, so the guys can sail her faster for longer.”

However, championships aren’t won by the fastest boats; they’re won by those who can sail faster for longer. This means minimising the time spent going slowly around the course – in other words, maximising the time on the foils.

Now in 2018, former olympic sailor Kalle Coster has equipped his Exocet with the Sailmon App. The Sailmon app turns every iphone or android device into an advanced sailing processor. Making all action on the water instantly available online, capturing every moment on the boat. Allowing sailors to compare optimal VMG’s, gather all data while sailing, allowing for quick or thorough analysis of all trips and races after sailing.
