Inventory & Remarks

Wauquiez Gladiateur 33           Cordon Bleu           SSR NO139499
The Gladiateur, crafted by the British architects Kim Holman and Don Pye is one of a number of successful models manufactured by the Wauquiez yard in northern France. Some 280 Gladiateurs were manufactured with Cordon Bleu being body no 80. 
Particular special which account for the popularity of the Gladiateur are worth mentioning: 
Very easy handling and manoeuvrable, both under sail an potential . Under motor she goes ahead and arear with precision and rear first into a tight marine dock is easily achieved. 
The body shape with a fairly deep forefoot and V section body shape ensures easy, spacious upwind progress with a noted lack of slamming and consequent spray on deck. 
The cockpit is large with angled deep sides making her spacious and secure under way and also allowing for plenty of compartment for socializing in seaport. 
A lead fin keel is tailored and secured with stainless steel keel bolts. A deep bilge ensures a dry vessel, even when heeled, as well as stiffness from a low centre of gravity. 
The deep full profundity skeg ensures directional stability and the vessel can be trimmed to sail herself upwind with hands off the tiller for long periods. 
 The deck layout is crafted for easy handling with Cordon Bleu brought up to date by having halyards and reefing lines led aft to the cockpit for safety.
