Optio

The very first Day Sailer in the brand’s history, the Optio incorporates all the Wauquiez hallmark features: as all the models within the other ranges, it boasts the unmistakable sophistication, luxury and craftsmanship.
 
Stylish
. Sleek, timeless lines, fluidity of the curves, uncluttered deck and teak covering the cockpit, flush deck hatches: the Optio has her own marked personality.

Fast

Efficient and easy to handle

To spend a night on board before a regatta or a week end enjoying both sailing and relaxing at a mooring, the Optio9 boasts top-of-the-range interior fittings: linings on hull sides and ceiling, solid teak … Wauquiez oblige!

Exterior
On deck, the design is also compatible with « farniente »: optional features include a fold down cockpit table, a folding transom which becomes a teak-lathed bathing platform and a large sunbathing area forward of the mast for optimal relaxation after the day’s efforts.

. Different options are available to transform the Day Sailer into a genuine little yacht to meet the needs of every yachtsman: a “B Category” version with handrails, a mooring kit including a catapulting anchor roller, a 220v electric pack with quay plug and charger etc.

. Retractable keel, 2.54m max beam, removable mast without backstays, a unique lifting point for launching at yacht-clubs… the Optio is towable, for easy access to all sailing areas.

Engine
. Standard : Yanmar 14 cv diesel, Sail Drive

. A 100% electrical version (OceanVolt 8,5KW) is available on option.

A word from the architect
Olivier Racoupeau  Berret-Racoupeau Yacht Design

« The pleasure of sailing »

« For me « Day Boat » rimes with « pleasure of sailing ». This is why the stability, waterline length and sail surface have been optimised to make the Optio9 a sharp, powerful boat that is easy to handle and that offers real sensations at the helm.  

For the combined use –sport and relaxation- a Wauquiez feature, I have imagined a modular cockpit lay-out which can instantly transform the sailing “machine” into a pleasure boat to be enjoyed by all.

Add to this a refined, classy interior and you have an authentic Wauquiez yacht for all the family”.
