- Project story - 15.04.2014 by Sebastien Schmidt
- SUI-190 was a brand new and fresh hull design studied and built during winter 1994-1995. The fundamentals have been studied together and in the same time with SUI-193 design, but while SUI-193 design focused to very light air, SUI-190 took another route to more polyvalence and all around sailing.
As the (poor, sorry) pictures of the cockpit show, ergonomy of the cockpit and handling was the one of the main focus of this project.
The cockpit tub itself is the one from SUI-187 & 188 mould but hardware and fittings were exclusive : doubled each side like on a catamaran, and grouped on small islands located in between of the crews, so that each one could access and help easily and quickly for any manoeuvre if needed, and, moreover, easy to unmount in case of trouble during a leg.
A spinnaker tube was tested on SUI-190, that was very efficient in an handling point of view, but at the end judged as too much destroying for these fragile sails.
One unit only have been built by Philippe Durr (deck and cockpit by Christof Wilke): SUI-190 "White Spirit", that became "Lumba Go" to Olivier Besse, then "Chlika Chlika" to Alain Cloux, then NED-33 "Onvermijdelijk" to Jan Van Gelderen.
