Marblehead Class

The SAILSetc range of products for the Marblehead class has been constantly refined since 1978 and provides for everything from a completed boat down to the smallest component part.

The Marbleheads built by SAILSetc have had a long run of success at world championship level:

3rd 1986 NO SECRET, 2nd 1988 HUSH HUSH, 5th 1990 ENIGMA, 1st 1992 PARADOX, 1st 1994 PARADOX, 1st 1996 PARADOX, 1st 1998 RAD, 2nd 2000 ROK, 2nd 2002 PRIME NUMBER, 2nd 2006 ROK, 2nd 2012 PRIME NUMBER, 2nd 2014 QUARK, 3rd 2016 QUARK.

Our current design of Marblehead, QUARK, is made using the same pre-preg process that we established with PRIME NUMBER. Suitable for use with swing rigs or traditional rigs, QUARK is capable of performing well across the wind speed range. Rigs from PRIME NUMBER can be transferred to QUARK with some adjustment to the main boom/gooseneck.

Characteristic of SAILSetc designed boats is their ability to perform for sailors of all skill ranges and in a wide range of conditions. Not only can they give excellent results for some of the best sailors (there were three QUARKs in the top 6 places at the 2014 world championship) but they can also give better results for sailors lower down the finishing results. This is partly due to their reliability imparted by the build quality and partly due to the handling qualities imparted by their fundamental and detail design.

The boats previously supplied by SAILSetc are now available from BOATSetc, a new entity located in Germany. The moulding quality is superb leaving the builder with only the task of adding the foils, structural component parts and fittings before going on to add rc and rigs.

BOATSetc and SAILSetc can supply carbon pre-preg hulls for the Marblehead QUARK and the component parts and general arrangement plans required to complete them. We welcome enquiries and orders from individuals and other builders, in the UK and elsewhere, who want to purchase hull mouldings or kits for these boats. Please go to the class category sections of this website to find more information.

Please see the Licensed Builders page for contact details for the many other builders who are producing our designs.

SAILSetc will continue to offer rc installation, rigging, optimisation and measurement for QUARK.

The foils and ballast used for QUARK can also be expected to help other designs obtain their best performance and may be suitable for up-grading our older designs.

SAILSetc spars, fittings and sails provide an optimised and compatible range of products with which to equip any Marblehead, whether from SAILSetc or from another source.

The complete range of products in any category and for any class can be found in the Products by Category section.
