Hull

The hull is made of fibreglass. Generally, a hull made of fibreglass requires only a minimum of maintenance during the sailing season. And outside the sailing season, just bottom cleaning and perhaps anti-fouling painting once a year - a few hours of work, that's all.


Interior

The boat is equipped with a galley and toilet facility.


Engine

The boat is typically equipped with a Volvo Penta engine at 140.0 hp (104 kW).

The fuel tank has a capacity of 400.0 liters (105 US gallons, 87 imperial gallons).


Sailing characteristics

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

Immersion rate

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Apollo 29 is about 182 kg/cm, alternatively 1023 lbs/inch.
Meaning: if you load 182 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 1023 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.
