Title (EN) SAILBOAT WITH TILTING MAST
(FR) VOILIER A MAT INCLINABLE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a sailboat (1) which is equipped with a tilting mast (13), comprising a connecting structure (4, 5, 6), at least two hulls (2) which extend parallel to a longitudinal axis and a mast base (16) which is linked to the connecting structure such that it can pivot longitudinally around a transverse pivot axis. The inventive sailboat also comprises two lateral shrouds (18) which are fixed to two sides of the mast base and which are pivot-connected to the connecting structure such that they can pivot with the mast base. The aforementioned lateral shrouds are designed to maintain the mast base in a plane that is perpendicular to the pivot axis. In addition, the sailboat comprises a variable-length tilting mechanism (27) which is fixed to (i) the mast base and (ii) a fixed point on the connecting structure, such that a variation in the variable length causes the mast to pivot longitudinally. The tilting mechanism comprises a locking member which can lock the mechanism in at least one length configuration.
(FR) Voilier (1) à mât (13) inclinable, comprenant une structure de liaison (4, 5, 6), au moins deux coques (2) s'étendant parallèlement selon une direction longitudinale, et une base de mât (16) liée à la structure de liaison de manière à pouvoir pivoter selon la direction longitudinale autour d'un axe de pivotement transversal. Le voilier comprend deux haubans latéraux (18) fixés à deux côtés de la base de mât et liés de manière pivotante à ladite structure de liaison de manière à pouvoir pivoter avec la base de mât, lesdits haubans latéraux étant aptes à maintenir la base de mât dans un plan perpendiculaire audit axe de pivotement. Ledit voilier comprenant un mécanisme d'inclinaison (27) présentant une longueur variable et fixé d'une part à la base de mât et d'autre part à un point fixe de ladite structure de liaison de manière qu'une variation de ladite longueur variable entraîne un pivotement dudit mât selon ladite direction longitudinale. Le mécanisme d'inclinaison comprend un organe de verrouillage apte à verrouiller ledit mécanisme d'inclinaison dans au moins un état de longueur.
