Ultimate 20 Sailboat Parts and Equipment470

Class Description

The Ultimate 20 was the result of a team of sailors with impressive credentials. Jeff Canepa headed a team that included Jim Antrim of Antrim Associates-Naval Architects, sail maker and Olympic medalist Jay Glaser, and 505 builder and foil specialist Larry Tuttle.

Their idea was simple. Create a monohull with multihull performance. They wanted a dry and stable platform with safe interior space for kids or crew. They also wanted a lightweight trailerable to have responsive dinghy-like handling, all with the cockpit comfort of a 30 footer.

After years of prototype testing, the U20 team achieved the perfect blend of size and simplicity, creating the ideal boat for racing ONE DESIGN, PHRF or any weekend sail about. The U20’s design offers exceptional craftsmanship that is reliable, safe, economical, and fun to sail.


Mainsheet System

Mainsheet
Strong, lightweight Carbo fiddle, singles, and ratchet block make up this 4:1 system which easily handles the 19 m² (205 ft²) mainsail. The ratchet's 144 swivel base rotates to keep the mainsheet in easy reach. The free-rolling, high-load traveler car rides on 22 mm Small Boat track. Double sheave end controls provide a 3:1 purchase that leads to both sides of the cockpit for easy trimming by skipper or crew

 

Jib System

Jib System
The Small Boat furler quickly rolls the jib out of the way at dockside and unfurls easily at the leeward mark. The 2:1 jib sheets use 29 mm T2™ blocks lashed directly onto the clew of the sail. 75 mm Carbo ratchets shackled onto the jib lead offer an exceptional 15:1 holding power.
