A 10-meter sailboat designed on the plans of the boat that Phillipe Harlé had built for his Sabbatical year with his family.
Philippe Harlé, who died in 1991, was one of the most prolific architects of modern yachting. His career began at a time when plywood and molded wood had not been eliminated by the hegemony of polyester. In less than thirty years, Philippe Harlé has designed nearly two hundred different types of boats, for pleasure, fishing, mussel farming and passenger transport. A work of rare eclecticism that ranges from the popular Muscadet to the sailboats of the Vendée Globe Challenge of Jean Luc Van Den Heede, through the Sangria built in three thousand units. As Alain Mortain, who was his partner, says: "Apart from aircraft carriers and submarines, Philippe designed everything." In total, no less than fourteen thousand boats were built on his plans!
At the end of the seventies, some reproached Philippe Harlé's boats, so perfect at sea, for being difficult to live in port. These criticisms encourage the architect to design "sailboats of travel", sailors and comfortable, dinghies weighted then integral. For him and his family, he created a 12.25-metre light-alloy dinghy, rigged as a sloop, built in Les Sables-d'Olonne at Dominique Chavantré, and of course baptized, Juliénas.
On October 29, 1977, the Harlés began a sabbatical year aboard this cruiser which they completed the moves before the departure from La Rochelle. With a width of 3.70 meters and a large rear square, the juliénas is particularly habitable. "Some days," Claude recalls, "there were twelve or fifteen of us at the table!" With their three daughters Martine, Isabelle and Sylvie, aged 9, 12 and 14 respectively, the Harles made a 14,000-mile Atlantic journey that took them to Madeira, the Canary Islands, Senegal, Brazil, the United States, Canada, the West Indies and the Azores, among others. A fabulous experience for the whole family.
Philippe Harlé writes at the conclusion of his trip: "Not aiming to prove anything, we have rigorously proved nothing. We did not travel as missionaries, but as curious and greedy: seeing, hearing, sniffing others and their islands, their fish, their markets, their cuisine, their ideas and also their boats of course.
We discovered that it was possible to see many things with a small sailboat."
An aluminum sailboat particularly designed for cruising as a couple or solo.
Its robustness, simplicity, marine qualities, its internal wheelhouse, its sailing hold, will open all destinations.
Its large living spaces, its rear square, its central cabins, its many storage spaces, will ensure you an exceptional habitability in this size.
Engine maintained, sails overhauled, well equipped, autonomous in energy, the boat is ready to leave.
