An extremely sail-able, coastal day sailer that is fast and dry.
The T15.5 is a blend of performance and comfort that is second to none. With her generous 6'5” beam and 2' free board forward, the T 15.5 delivers planning dinghy performance without the constant cockpit wash downs of the traditional one-designs of the 15' range. Transfusion boats have revolutionized the comfort and stability factor for small boats. Sea-kind. The T 15.5 is truly comfortable for 3 adults, and can be an excellent club trainer because the instructor can sail along with the crew instead of yelling out commands from afar, the result is better quality instruction.
Centerboard, Shoal Draft, Trailer-able.
Finally, a day sailer that is truly beach able...
The T 15.5 has a hull fair body depth of less than 3”, a fully retractable center board (with lead ballast) and a flip-up rudder. Her all up trailering weight is under 700 pounds, so that any size vehicle can tow it easily. These design elements provide ease in ramp launching, and compose a shoal draft daysailor that is a breeze to trailer.
Custom Design and Construction = Lasting quality, Resale Value
Transfusion Boat Works Inc. is sailors building the best for sailors. The T 15.5 is a production boat which is custom designed and hand crafted by a crew of dedicated professionals for you the individual, not just mass produced on an assembly line. We build boats that will last for generations and remain competitive for years. Our hand-laid epoxy/PVC foam/woven fiberglass laminates are the most seaworthy, stiffest, lightest structures afloat.
Innovative Design Parameters.
The fact remains that no other 15' one-design sailboat can sail as effectively in all weather conditions and open seas. The T 15.5 has a designed displacement of 385 lbs, 180 sq ft of sail area, and her 4'4” draft spell upwind performance. Her generous beam, 15' waterline, and 200 sq. ft. spinnaker read for speed off the wind, and her topside flare aft puts crew weight further outboard for better stability without hiking. The T 15.5 can be sailed single handed or with up to 4 people, and her stability and performance remains virtually unchanged.
So, if you feel the need for speed, yet comfort, stability, and quality construction are all important considerations as well, the T 15.5 is for sail now, so come test sail for yourself.
