The fruit of a shared dream of designing the most compact and lightest performance yacht in the world, the unique design of the Reverso is inspired by racing. With a length of 3.40 meters, the construction includes a a planing infusion chine hull, a full carbon mast and a black membrane sail, all completely removable. Lightweight, this small sailboat can comfortably carry up to two adults, or one adult and two children, and reach a top speed of over 16 knots. “Reverso is a dinghy that has revolutionized the practice of sailing”, explains the inventor and creator of the Reverso, Antoine Simon.
“Ultra-dismountable, this foldable sailboat is so small that it fits in the trunk of a car. Sailing instructor and airplane pilot, Simon sought to bring more freedom to sailing by creating the first collapsible sailboat the industry had ever seen. Drawing on his expertise in sailing and aviation and his keen sense of observation, Simon surrounded himself with a team of talented experts to bring the Reverso concept to life. At the forefront of quality and design, the Reverso team is passionate about sailing and sustainable development.
The Reverso was designed in Occitania and is partly manufactured in Brittany, with attention to the smallest detail. Entirely handcrafted, each Reverso is pre-tested internally by the team with passion and care. “Longevity is built into the design and design of the boat, which makes it durable,” says Simon. “It was important for us to design a sailboat that would remain in perfect condition using sustainable and recyclable materials, such as wood and organic resin.” Coming from the aerospace industry, where technology and innovation are at the forefront of any design, Simon chose to leave the industry behind to make his own dream a reality. “I really wanted to create a beautiful sailboat but I wanted to make sure it would be durable.”
Constructed from high-tech materials and composites used in ocean racing, extreme sports and aeronautics, the Reverso design is built to last. As the Reverso can also be completely disassembled, it can also be easily repaired, either by the owner or by a shipyard, and kept protected from the weather, which further extends its life. Indeed, the longevity of the Reverso has been tested and certified by experts from the ICNN in La Rochelle.
Winner of the prestigious boat of the year award in the United States, Reverso seeks to transform the practice of sailing. Easy enough for a child to learn to sail with an experienced adult, most maneuvers are easy and the lines are stable, leaving the sailor one hundred percent in control every time.
