Are there any more translations from Babelfish we’ve left out? :)
The One is the newest classic boat from the Trudeau Classic Sailing Yachts. It takes it’s inspiration from a well-known Scandinavian one-design keelboat of the 1930s that has developed, through the years, into actively raced fleets in locations across the globe. From Norway to Long Island Sound, from San Francisco to Bermuda, you could say it has truly international appeal. (though RL intellectual property considerations prevent us from singling out that boat, we’ve dropped broad enough hints that any sailor worth his/her/it’s salt should have no trouble identifying it ;)
With a 7/8 Bermudian rig, it is the first Trudeau boat with fully sculpted sails and, sculpted by Bunnie Mills, what beauties they are – perfectly billowed, perfectly curved throughout the leech with wrinkles like real sailcloth, and actually texture-able. But that’s not all. Wait until you see…
On top of that, these sails are scripted to really luff! No need to keep your eye fixed on that sail angle figure – One will let you know inworld, visually and aurally, about your sail trim. Actually, you won’t be able to keep you eye fixed on that sail angle figure as it is not to be found anywhere (but don’t worry – wind and speed numbers are still in the sail control and info-HUDs). One is the first Trudeau boat that is truly sailed by your senses.
Specifically designed with racing in mind, One has features such as the chute, ballast shifting positions for skipper and up to 2 crewmembers and naturally, sail handling duties shared by all aboard. That spinnaker bag looks like a comfy spot to relax between heats… and it is!
There are 6 built-in color combinations, all actual schemes found in the RL fleet of the boat not mentioned above (including a folkboat-y like bright hull) that we are quite proud of. But naturally serious customizers will want to make their own, and we have you covered in texture templates for covering your One:
(please look in your “Sailing One” card for example script and notecard for over-riding One’s built-in sails)
One has built-in mooring field and dockside details – buoy, fenders (yes, those are half-hitch knots making fast the lines ;), cradle autorezzed over the hard, half-hull display model for your SL home.
One and her revolutionary sails have to be seen to be appreciated and you can at Trudeau Classic Sailing Yachts. Sit in the One on display for a short demo of them and you’ll see why we are so excited by them!
32 prims (sit locations for skipper and a crew of two)

Cradle – 20 prims
A special thanks to the SL sailors who have requested this design – Francois Jacques, Naeve Rossini, Jane Fossett – for me, it was the right boat at the right time. And an extra-special thanks to Bunnie Mills whose SL sail lofting skills made it all possible. Now I can get back to my catboats!
