Cinderella IV has a lift keel

Cinderella IV is a refined version of the first lift keel designed by Bill Tripp, featured on an 88 foot sailing yacht built in the mid-90s.

"Her lift keel gives her access to atolls, and enhanced sailing characteristics that can't be offered with a fixed keel," Tripp explains. "The carbon composite construction helps keep the loads down and the responsiveness up when she is under sail, and easy on fuel when she is under power. Working with Green Marine and Vitters brought together the best of composite work with the best of systems and interior quality.
