Feeling 1390 Description
The Feeling 1390 will be strongly reminiscent of all the traditional features of the Feeling, updated with a fresh and modern look. The first Feeling design by Marc Lombard she will be a centreboard/lifting keel with the pivoting keel retracting entirely into the hull. The keel box will be beneath the mainsaloon floor, meaning that it is no longer the main feature of the mainsaloon!
In terms of the underwater profile, in addition to her two rudders and lifting keel, there will be 2 small, angled wings attached to the hull which will help with stability drying out and also improve upwind sailing performance.
With 180˚ visibility from the mainsaloon – it will be light and airy with plenty of opening portholes in the coachroof window band. An arch over the cockpit, has a double function – a rigid support for the sprayhood but more importantly it supports the mainsheet track. This constraint removed, the companionway moves forward and this allowed the designer to avoid a steep descent.
