(The Mesh Shop) One Design 65

Details Features Contents Reviews (6)


You've all seen the Open 70. But alas, all good things must come to an end. The Ocean race is changing it's boats. The new boat for 2014 is the One Design 65. Still being built in real life, but already available on Second Life. It's faster. It's lighter. It's even more beautiful.

Just a few options to give you an idea what this boat is capable of:

- 3D luffing sails
- An asymmetrical gennaker
- Folded sail when lowered
- Engine mode for mooring
- Real life polars
- Wake and bow splashes
- A manual keel
- Aqua planing
- Crew HUD for sail and keel trim
- A free iPad wind setter
- The most realistic wind on the grid
- 9 different poses
- A buoy for mooring at sea
- Moving main sheet
- Easy texture change
- Automatic dagger boards
- Changeable transparent sails
- Navigation lights
- SLSA race line subscription
- Only 96 prims when moored

In the box is only one item: the boat. The boat will give you items like a manual, free iPad, Crew HUD and polar reference model. Like the VO70, it's easy to sail this boat, but it's really hard to sail it well. Learning to make this boat do what you want will be hours of sailing fun.

And the best news: due to it's shorter development period and slightly less excessive package, this boat is a lot cheaper.

Good price and sails well

This is a fun boat to sail and race though can be challenging to get the hang of it which is part of the fun. After I had bought this I discovered the sitter adjuster used in this as well as several other boats does not always work and in the case of this boat never works saving adjustments made. For tall people this might never get noticed, but for shorter people is a problem. I had notified Dutch and he is considering ways of addressing this. Though it might be somewhat a pain and time consuming I would like to see something used that has a modifiable notecard/config file, this way once the right position is found it can be hard coded in the sitter. Another boat maker I like does this and takes more time to configure if need be, but once is done it is done and I never seen it fail.

I love boating and always wanted to sail. I watched a YouTube video on sailing in SL BWind and purchased the Nacra 17 after several demo runs. I was up and running out of the “box”. After 4 hours or so . . .seeing the Volvo65 . . . I began to wonder . . . so I took a several demo runs with no one around. Yes, I can handle this and bought the boat. I'm thrilled with the purchase. It’s smooth and easy to handle. Loads of fun. Get it!

Read the instructions and get the add-on textures . . .

A big THANK YOU to Dutch.
