The new, exciting Salona 33 will make its debute in June 2013. This will be closely followed by our new flagship, the Jason Ker designed Salona 60. Both boats will be launched near our production facilities in Split, Croatia.
The Salona 33 is a result of teamwork bringing together our extensive internal design and engineering resources with external designers, Olympic and professional sailors, interior designers, and our excellent suppliers. Most importantly this new design incorporates many features recommended by Salona’s cruising and racing customers.
The entire team came together and agreed on one simple goal - to design and build a globally competitive fast sailing yacht that can win any regatta, and at the same time provide uncompromised comfort and safety while cruising.
The modern and clean deck lines are a continuation of the new distinctive styling Salona first introduced with the Salona 38,
and are a major feature of the Salona 60.
At the stern we find a spacious cockpit free of obstacles, comfortable for cruising, and practical for racing.
Two spacious lockers are located in the cockpit of the new Salona 33, with an additional dedicated locker for one gas bottle.
Top quality sailing gear from internationally recognized suppliers make the Salona 33 easy to sail with the family, a crew, or
The S33 is offered standard with a tiller. A two steering wheel option is available making the S33 one of the smallest two wheel
performance cruisers on the market.
The Salona 33’s comfortable interior is one that is associated with interiors found in larger yachts. The standard 2 cabin
interior includes a spacious head, large navigation table, and functional galley. An innovative pilot berth system, like that
found on the S38, is an option.
Innovation continues in the Salona 33. By using a mix of GRP and mahagony, Salona has created modern and inviting interior
spaces, while reducing performance robbing weight. The spacious interior is filled with daylight coming through traditional
port lights, hull windows, and hatches. Along with numerous smart design details, the saloon in the new Salona 33 is the
perfect place to relax and enjoy the comfort of our latest and most technically advanced yacht.
The Salona 33 will satisfy a wide range of customer demands, from safe family cruising to high level IRC or ORC racing.
The S33 combines a proven and optimized hull shape, two mast options and several versions of cruising, performance and
racing keels with various draft options. The keel, sail and hull optimizations were developed for maximum performance
combined with ease of handling.
At customer’s request the S33 can be further optimized to reflect changes in rating rules and customer’s sailing preferences.
For example, downwind sailing options include fixed or retractable bowsprits, or traditional spinaker pole configurations.
Construction, technology and innovation have always been the strong points of the Salona yard. On the S33 we have combined
our experience using hi tech materials with smart design features.
The goal of producing a globally competitive, yet safe and comfortable sailboat demanded a new type of structural
engineering, advancing sailboat production one step further. As on all Salona models the stainless steel frame takes the
loads from the keel and shrouds and spreads them securely to a wide area of the hull. In order to achieve maximum stiffness
and durability, the construction of the new Salona 33 goes an extra step. We have added layers of carbon fibre to carefully
analyzed sections of the inner hull liner. As a result, we have achieved the optimum balance between stiffness, durability and
Construction engineering innovations in the S33 goes even further. In order to avoid shear failure of core materials under
heavy load, the slamming zone of the boat is built in a single skin composite. This area is further reinforced with layers of
triaxial E-glass fabric.
The use of transparent gel coat and vinylester epoxy resin during the vacuum infusion of the hull is standard for all Salona
vacuum infused boats (optional). This extra step reflects Salona’s dedication to strict process control and 100% quality control
of vacuum infused hulls, resulting in superior hull strength and durabilty.
The deck of the new Salona 33 is a structural sandwich design incorporating a ceiling inner liner to better withstand high
longitudinal and transverse loads.
Fore and aft bulkheads are completely watertight, thus preventing the possibility of water intrusion in case of damage to the
bow or stern of the boat. The composite sandwich construction of the for and aft bulkheads provides additional strength and
safety, while at the same time reducing performance robbing weight.
The final result is a stiff and strong, yet weight optimized construction, creating the foundation of a seaworthy yacht, capable of withstanding high loads from rig, wind and sea conditions, enhancing maximum sailing performance.
