ERIVALE 111 is an IRC designed cruiser/racer with a proven history on the race course.
The yacht features a fully fitted interior with a forward cabin and heads/shower compartment. A saloon with adjacent galley to port and a dedicated nav-station to starboard. Finally twin aft cabins are found to port and starboard giving 12 berths in total including two pipe cots in the saloon.
On deck, cockpit seats provide useful storage lockers and small coamings make for a secure seating area when cruising. The cockpit sole and seats are decked in teak for both styling and comfort. The open transom has a dedicated liferaft locker and also incorporates the hydraulic backstay, which is neatly led below decks. There is also an anchor locker forward.
The rest of the deck layout is incredibly clean with all halyards being led below deck to a bank of sunken clutches at the hatch way and the mainsheet too being led under deck (These are currently led outside for offshore sailing). The result is an array of clean curved surfaces forming the decks, coamings and coachroof, even the windows are curved to emphasize this modern style. But it is not just about style, the clear deck areas make this an extremely ergonomic boat to race with plenty of space for all maneuvers and a clear coachroof for the crew to cross during tacks
The yacht is rigged with a high-modulus carbon rig and composite boom. The boom has an internal mainsheet and clew end cut-away maintaining the yacht's sleek appearance and saving some weight in the process
The yacht first sailed on the way to the start line for the UK IRC Nationals where she was the lowest rating yacht in Class 0 by some margin. She finished the 2004 Rolex Commodore's Cup as top boat in Class 2. She then went to class wins the 2005 Red Funnel Easter regatta, UK IRC Nationals and Cowes Week. Since then she has continued to have success with a variety of wins in more recent regattas.
