The CM 60 concept was established to meet a client's demands for an exciting but easily handled boat that would be competitive under all racing formats. The CM 60 is very fast for its size with excellent handling ability. The boat is very competitive under IRC, with an emphasis on fast light airs performance.
The deck layout is primarily designed for racing. Twin wheels and two grinder pedestals give good central cockpit space and a clean-looking, workable layout. Cockpit sides are inboard at the forward end of the cockpit and a half-height bridge deck gives way to more space below to accommodate the interior, without compromising cockpit use.
The rig features a formula similar to that used successfully on the Farr 45, Mumm 30 and Farr 40 One Design – carbon spar with two swept spreaders and no running backstays. Generous sail area enables the CM 60 to be very fast relative to its size.
Venomous benefits from both fractional or masthead spinnakers for scintillating offwind speed. The jib sheets to a longitudinal track and uses a hydraulic inhaul adjuster system, giving a good range of trim control. Forestay load and mast bend is controlled through the masthead backstay with an external hydraulic system.
