Review: Cape Horn 82' Expedition

Built with redundancy in mind, the Cape Horn 82' Trideck Expedition Yacht was designed to withstand the most grueling passages. A heavy gauge, double-planked steel hull is utilized to ensure safety in the shallows, while adding to the displaced weight beneath the waterline. This results in increased ballast and greater sea-keeping stability. To offset the weight of Cape Horn's hull, the superstructure is constructed from aluminum, which helps aids in reducing roll momentum.

Sea keeping stability on this yacht is also a by-product of a hard chine with active & passive bilge keel stabilization. A bulb is incorporated to add sub-surface length, which helps reduce pitching and its large expedition bow helps disperse spray in North Sea conditions. This provides excellent heavy weather capability and a seakindly motion that helps keep a land-lovers lunch down.
