The 25 S, designed by Finot-Conq et Associes, has a really broad transom. I suspect that Finot-Conq has put to use some of its experience in the Mini Transat class in developing this hull. The twin rudders can be much shorter in span than a single rudder and this avoids the need for a retractable rudder. There is the option of a fixed keel drawing 4 feet 9 inches.
