Designer's Comments - Rodger Martin website
The Quest 33 is a superb example of a fast contemporary “club racer” in which a family can comfortably cruise, and win ’round-the-buoys or point-to-point races under PHRF. These boats are Open Designs, and are not based on any restrictive rules! The Quest 33 is a development of the successful Quest 30, designed by us and built by Holby Marine Co.
The Quest 33 offers a finer entry for increased upwind speed, a longer waterline for greater speed all ’round and larger interior and cockpit spaces. The extended, open stern looks good and facilitates swimming and boarding from a dinghy.
This is a proven fast sailplan in PHRF, fast coastal passages & even in the Singlehanded TransAtlantic Race! while for cruising the boat has all the power you need from the mainsail & 100% jib. The ingenious bowsprit shoots out at the pull of a line for setting the asymmetrical spinnaker. Wide traveler, vang and halyard give infinite tuning power to the mainsail.
The deck is securely surrounded by a built-in ‘recessed’ toerail. The cockpit measures a vast 11’6″ long, and works equally well with a wheel or tiller, for cruising or for racing. The jib-furler is recessed under the foredeck and just aft is an anchor locker with a hinged cover . Next is the forehatch on the forward end of the deckhouse. The seahood at the forward end of the main companionway hatch doubles as a line-cover for the controls running aft from the mast to the house-top winches. At the aft end of the cockpit there are two large lockers under the seats plus a large centre locker under the cockpit sole.
The Quest 33 has a very spacious well-ventilated interior, especially roomy for a boat of this size. Start aft, with a palatial aft berth with plenty of airspace over it. It is huge. You can sleep North-South or East-West. Then, at the base of the companionway, there is the galley to port, with 2-burner stove with oven, ice-box & sink with stowage below, & outboard.
To starboard, a complete enclosed head with full headroom & wet gear area. Then, further forward on the starboard side, the navigation area, served from the saloon seat. Now you’re in the saloon proper with comfortable full-sized seat/berths (6’6″ long) with good seat backs and an optional drop-leaf table in between. This is a pleasant area for dining & socializing & a great off-watch area while sailing.
Forward of the saloon, through an arced bulkhead there is an area of storage shelves & lockers on each side and then the forward double berth, once again with much air & light. Plenty of foot-space at the forward end, as there is a separate forepeak/chain locker up there. The Quest 33 can be enjoyed as much for its interior as for its sailing abilities.
All Quest 33s are built using a licensed resin infusion system. This provides the best possible production laminate quality. Vinyl Ester resins assure resistance to blistering & have superior properties to polyesters. One of the Quests built to this system has done a double Transatlantic in 5 weeks under racing conditions. Holby quality is everywhere in evidence.
The Quest 33 is faster than many boats 5 & 10 feet longer! This boat is a PHRF winner! The sailplan is highly refined and easy to use & adapt, and the fin-keel & rudder are the latest, thin, high-aspect foil designs.
The design is based on the same principals as the Open Class ’round the world BOC racers & is unspoiled by slavish following of arcane ‘racing’ rules. These are called ‘handicaps’ for good reason! Yet a family cruising with ease will make very fast trips from port to port, & have the pleasure of gliding by bigger boats during a daysail.
The Quest 33 provides sportboat-like performance in a stable, easy-to-sail boat with generous cruising space in the cockpit and interior.
