Theo Stocker takes a fist look at the Pointer 25, a Dutch coastal cruiser that should offer plenty of cruising enjoyment in a 25ft package

pointer 25 yacht test

Product Overview

The Pointer 25 has also been around since 2015, but has proved perennially popular for the Dutch builder Jachtweerf Heeg, particularly on the sheltered waters of the Netherlands. As with other mini cruisers, their size and fit out limits their RCD rating to Category B (Force 8, Offshore) or C (Force 6, Coastal), but few would consider an ocean crossing in a 25-footer these days.

The Pointer 25 is Category B, and has been designed around seaworthiness and enjoyable sailing. The Van de Stadt designed hull has a long waterline length and a reasonable beam carried aft, but rounded sections and a moderate rocker suggest a seakindly motion.

Fit out below is fairly basic, and is designed to be modular. A V-berth double forward and two singles aft make up four berths. A moulded liner keeps the boat clean and neat, if a little basic below. There’s a small galley forward to port, and a locker hiding the heads or chemical toilet to starboard – there’s no option for an enclosed heads.

Wires strung along the inside of the hull just below the deck allow stowage bags to be hung throughout the boat, offering a flexible and light weight stowage solution, though there isn’t stowage for much more than weekending. Headheight is limited to sitting, but this does allow the freeboard and coach roof to remain low and elegant.

You can specify a 4kW electric motor or the standard 10hp Yanmar diesel inboard.

On deck, a drop-down transom bathing platform encloses a large cockpit with full length bench seats, tiller steering and midships mainsheet anchor point. A sprayhood is an option, as is deckhardware for furling downwind sails, and either a genoa with cars or a self-tacking jib. The keel is a fairly shallow 1.10m with a lead bulb and and a generous 47% ballast/displacement ration, but a deeper 1.5m keel or shallower 0.80m keel with twin rudders are options; there’s no option for a lifting keel.

Attractive lines, real sailing pedigree and a simple layout on deck and below make this a boat that should be fun and easy to use.

NOW IN THE UK, THE AWARD WINNING POINTER 25!

Designed by the renowned Van de Stadt Design team, the POINTER 25 is built in The Netherlands by the Jachtwerf Heeg BV. Van de Stadt were asked to come up with an elegant and modular yacht which attracts sporty sailors who are looking for an overnight stay aboard. Their design of the new 25 foot POINTER immediately won both plaudits and awards, including the Dutch Yacht Of The Year!

DESIGNED AROUND SAILING ENJOYMENT

A quick look at the sleek contemporary hull lines of the POINTER 25 tell you that this small yacht is about real sailing pleasure. The low freeboard and low weight combine to create outstanding performance under sail. A fat head mainsail, a jib with an under-deck furler and a pre balanced rudder help to produce the complete enjoyment package. The fin keel with bulb carries a generous amount of ballast, making the POINTER 25 a very stiff boat with go anywhere appeal – even off-shore cruising thanks to a CE category of ‘B’.  Yet, two different keel options, a shoal draft 1.1m and a deeper 1.5m draft, enable this yacht to be customised to your sailing area. Other options include a self-tacking jib for shorthanded sailing as well as a range of easily manageable downwind sails flown off a purpose fitted bowsprit.

COMPACT COMFORT

Below deck the POINTER 25 is appointed as a real sailer’s boat. No stateroom accomodation here. Instead, the yacht offers a compact yet comfortable cabin with plenty of natural light from the large windows. A good size (2.1m long) v-berth and two (2.1m) saloonberths can easily accomodate a family of 4.  The cabin can be customised in a variety of  interior colour patterns. Other options to enhance comfort below deck include a galley unit, a marine heads, clever storage solutions and, even cabin heating.

DESIGN YOUR OWN POINTER 25

With such an array of options to choose from, including  inboard diesel or electric propulsion, a swim platform and a range of boom tents, this boat can be made to suit a variety of tastes. This is why POINTER YACHTS have a clever design tool on their website – use it to construct your perfect POINTER 25. If you have any questions about the POINTER 25 or you wish to arrange a test sail then contact us at The Small Yacht Company, UK Dealer, Pointer Yachts.

An impressive rig will move this nice-looking weekender easily under sail

I have been a big fan of the Van De Stadt Design office since I was a kid and saw the first drawings of the mighty ocean-racing ketch Stormvogel . I think “ Stormy ” caught everyone’s eye. This is one of the design offices that just can’t produce an ugly boat. The new 25 is an entry level sportboat designed for a small family crew. 

pointer 25 yacht test

The hull form is moderate with no chines and a D/L of 121. The draft is minimal at 3 feet 7 inches. The keel is a shoal fin with a ballast bulb. With 1,550 pounds ballast, the ballast-to-displacement ratio is high at 46%. This should provide the stability needed in a shoal-draft boat. The L/B is 3.07. This is a simple and very normal looking hull form.

The interior has a V-berth forward. Aft of the V-berth, there is a space for a head to starboard and a mini galley to port. Twin settee berths extend aft under the cockpit. The headroom looks to be about 5 feet, but I’d rather have a nice looking boat without full headroom than an ugly beast with full headroom.

There is a standard sailplan and two performance sailplans. The basic rig has a triangular main, while the two performance sailplans have square-topped mainsails. The SA/D is 28.73. That’s an impressive SA/D. There is a short bowsprit for the asymmetrical chute. 

This boat is similar in size to my old Perrywinkle . The Pointer is much lighter than Perrywinkle , and it has a lot more sail area. I can see myself enjoying this little boat.

asked the renowned designer to draw an elegant, modular boat for both the sporty sailor as well as the cruiser who wants to overnight on board in comfort.

The essence of the POINTER 25 is cabin yacht luxury in tandem with true sailing pleasure. The excellent sailing properties are the result of , among other things, the fathead mainsail, the furling jib that sits on a below-deck drum and the modern below the waterline hull with a bulb keel and spade rudder.

5 top new yachts crowned European Yacht of the Year 2015 winners from 25 tested

  • Toby Hodges
  • January 17, 2015

If you want to know which are the best new production yachts out on the market at the moment, the best indicator is to look at the winners of the European Yacht of the Year (shown below).

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Advanced Yachts 44 during European Yacht of the Year trials

The European Yacht of the Year is the most thorough competition there is for production boats, the only one that comprises 11 different magazines, from 11 different European nations, testing 25 yachts in five different categories, over two weeks in two different seas.

Following the running of the seatrials in the autumn of 2014, and the long jury discussions, the awards for the winners of the European Yacht of the Year 2015 were announced tonight, Saturday 17 January, the opening night of the Dusseldorf Boatshow.

The five categories comprise Performance Cruisers, Family Cruisers, Luxury Cruisers, Special Yachts, and, for the first time to reflect the growing interest in this sector, Bluewater cruisers. As usual, there were some close decisions, particularly in the Family Cruiser and Performance Cruiser divisions, where debates raged and voting was tight. The winners, accompanied by our thoughts, plus some quotes from the European judges further below, are as follows:

JPK 1080 [Performance Cruisers]

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5

JPK 1080 European Yacht of the Year 2014/5

As the appeal of racing shorthanded grows steadily there is a greater incentive for owners to find boats that are suitable and competitive for both shorthanded and fully crewed racing. In the 36ft range, two boats in particular are attracting a great deal of interest: the Sun Fast 3600 and the JPK 1080. Little surprise then that both boats made it to the EYOTY shortlist.

When it came to the judging, the competition was very tight between these two. There was little to choose between their accommodation and layout, both are well thought out and easy to sail. When it came to performance, both handle well and already have promising racing results. But the JPK has the edge when it comes to configuration when fully crewed and appears to be slightly more versatile. We also prefer the construction of the JPK.

Wauquiez Centurion 57 [Luxury Cruisers]

Wauquiex Centurion57 European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Wauquiex Centurion57 European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

With the 57, Wauquiez is certainly sending out a clear message that it is back in the business of producing quality cruisers for discerning sailors. The Centurion 57 represents good build quality at a reasonable price, a comfortable and well-finished yacht throughout. It was also one of only a couple of yachts to venture out in the big seas and swells when the wind was up to a Force 7, and cope commendably with the conditions. It is not the most modern looking of the category, indeed the Berret-Racoupeau hull is taken from the seven-year-old 55 Pilot Saloon, but it is perhaps the most timeless, with the heart of a real cruising yacht. More versatile than radical she feels robust, well thought-out and finished with a warm and calm interior. [See Yachting World’s boat test of the Wauquiez Centurion 57 ]. €659,000. www.wauquiez.com

 Bavaria Cruiser 46 [Family Cruisers]

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Bavaria 46 European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

The Bavaria 46 is perhaps proof that you can get both a cheap yacht that is value for money. The German production giants continue to diligently improve build quality year after year. Many of the judges spoke of this being the best Bavaria they had tested (see quotes further down), and the most solidly built. Our Italian colleague Vanni Galgani, editor of Fare Vela, perhaps summarises her the most eloquently (including some Italian enthusiasm of course):

“Maybe the best Bavaria ever, for sure the best of this new generation, she puts together excellent performance, both down and upwind, with outstanding interior spaces that suit perfectly both owner and charter versions. It may not be very pretty, but it is far better than the 45, with a completely new deck. And these are only the things you can see immediately, because the biggest improvements are done in the hidden parts, with general quality the best of her class. All this, not to forget, at a very, very good price.”

Boreal 52  [Bluewater Cruisers]

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Boreal 52 European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

There cannot be many brochures that describe their boat’s accommodation as having, ‘a desk in every cabin where bluewater children can do their homework.’ But this is just one of many examples of what this boat is all about – live aboard, go anywhere. Solidly built above and below decks the Boreal 52 is the result of many miles at sea with a family aboard. While her chined alloy hull won’t appeal to everyone, the same rugged style will instil confidence for many.

When it came to her performance, at 18 tonnes she was surprisingly nimble, even in the light winds during our test, and was a very easy boat to handle with well thought out control line runs. All this for a custom-built boat with a price tag that is still considerably less than some popular alternatives even when you’ve added all of the listed options. The Boreal 52 brings home what a real deepwater cruiser needs to be like. A go-anywhere boat, with a lifting keel, that is full of clever and innovative details, especially the doghouse/navstation that is based on the experience of many hard-fought miles.

Advanced Yachts 44  [Special Yachts ]

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Advanced Yachts 44 – European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Sometimes you have to reward the will to do something wild and different. The Advanced 44 lives up to her name by being the most contemporary monohull of 2014, and one that puts sailing pleasure above any trivialities like practicality and cost. And what a sensation she provides… the ride is stable, direct and super-responsive – this is a true supercar of the sea.

The 44 is an innovative, flamboyant plaything, a high performance race boat that has a luxury pad within for day cruising, and even a sailing clinic arranged by the builder to help clients manage the boats and help get the best from them. A great job by Nauta Design and Roberto Biscontini, she has performance to match the style –and congratulations to Advanced for having the balls to do such a project!

JURY QUOTES ON THE WINNERS

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

JPK 1080 European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

“A racer-cruiser designed by sailors for sailors. Deeply thought out for short-handed racing, the boat is delivered with a close to perfect deck layout and top-level deck gear. Speed is easy and its size makes it a cool and roomy sailboat for those who love to have fun when cruising. A great boat even if we might have say the same of the Sun Fast 3600.” Voile Magazine, FRA

“The best ‘trimmable’ boat that ever entered this election and: everything works perfectly. A twin rudder boat that steers like a yacht with one, she sails incredibly high upwind and you can steer and tune this machine with you fingertips. Good building quality for a fair price.” Waterkampioen, NED

“The tireless and enthusiastic Frenchman Jean Pierre Kelbert has put his initials on yet another very versatile performance cruiser. All trim lines, deck hardware and other equipment is placed exactly where they function in the smoothest way, either for hard single-handed racing or for a fast cruise with some friends. The sailing feeling is amazing!” BatNytt, SWE

“If you want to collect trophies, the JPK 1080 is your boat. Optimized for IRC, light and stiff, she belongs to the few that can fly downwind without huge punishment in rating, and still take you cruising with your family for holidays. But it’s the kind of boat you will spend your time on deck sailing, not down below. And nothing beats tiller steering.” Seilas, NOR

“It has everything you need for winning long distance offshore races, but in the first instance its easy handling makes sailing pure fun.” YachtRevue, AUT

“A fantastic boat in terms of pure sailing: light but consistent, fast and very, very reactive, a pure joy to steer and to sail.” Fare Vela, ITA

“More on the racy side, but a dream to drive, easy to trim, fun to push and comes ready for shorthanded sailing ex works. Though she lacks wooden cozyness in the cabins and beauty in styling she does offer proper cruising comfort. Great choice for owners who seek the extra edge in terms of speed and fun.” YACHT, GER

“The cockpit layout is adapted for small crews, but the yacht can also be sailed single-handedly. The double-rudder gives a perfect feeling at the helm.” marina.ch, SUI

“The stiffness of the boat is remarkable as is the feeling on the tiller. Also the cockpit layout is impeccable and will hopefully be of inspiration to other designers and yards in their work to make functionality, safety and comfort go hand in hand.” BadNyt, DEN

Wauquiez Centurion 57

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Wauquiez Centurion 57 – European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

“A ‘safe’ choice maybe, but a just one, offering the best complete package of all. Good build quality, good sailing, everything works and is well thought out.” Waterkampioen, NED

“A sensible choice – a bit anonymous from the outside, but I fell in love when I came aboard, strengthened after sailing her in 30 knots + wind. A very good boat for sailing and living on board, she is as safe as a typical cruising boat, but with a lot better performance.” Seilas, NOR

“Luxury is not just about show-off and this very classical yacht just proves it. As soon as you enter the saloon, you can feel you are in a very chic atmosphère. The square proportion of the design, the warm feeling of the leather, the neat work on the wood parts: everything you see, everything you touch makes it clear. This is true luxury.” Voile Magazine, FRA

“Good performance all round, very well built and with a good interior style, all at an interesting price”. Fare Vela, ITA

“In severe conditions the Wauquiez 57 proved to have just the right combination of skills. Strong, safe and still quite quick on her heels she was easy on the crew and refreshingly simple to sail. Her clever layout and a positively rich and warm ambience down below put her first on the jury’s list.” YACHT, GER

“The Wauquiez 57 comes in a classical style, no extravagant curlicue and it convinces on the sea (sailing abilities, cockpit layout) as well as in the harbour. A real luxury cruiser.” marina.ch, SUI

“A pure French luxury cruiser that is sailed with a smile on your face, despite her 22 tons of weight. She offers an elegant and attractive exterior as well as a very proper interior, including a generous master forecabin.” BatNytt, SWE

Bavaria Cruiser 46

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

“The most well-rounded Bavaria of them all. Based on the already well-balanced 45 this thoroughly refined and reengineered family cruiser scores in almost any respect, most notably in build quality and rigidity. Not an easy benchmark to set in a market where price is a major factor.” YACHT, GER

“Very well built and by far the best value for money in this category. Building quality of Bavaria has improved enormously within a few years, which only is enough for the prize, but it is also a very nice sailing boat with a cockpit and deck that function very well, and a classic nice, roomy interior. The Bavaria 46 is the best boat you can buy in this section of the market.” Waterkampioen, NED

“Where yards save money on details you don’t see, Bavaria does the opposite. The improvements lie in the details, like the steering. You don’t feel it on a boat show, not before you go sailing. The Bavaria Cruiser 46 sails well, is strongly built, and has a lot of space.” Seilas, NOR

“Hats off to the Bavaria team. They have started from the Bavaria 45 and turned the ugly duckling into a wonderful swan. They did a much better deck design and took some risks on the inner layout. There is no more chart table, no more handrail at the helm and we all love it: times they are a-changing.” Voile Magazine, FRA

“The solid workmanship reflects the shipyard’s efforts made in production and quality improvements. At the same time the Bavaria still offers reasonable value for money.” YachtRevue, AUT

“The boat sails remarkably well considering the high weight. More importantly, the level of the craftsmanship will put pressure on the rest of the builders and become a model for how to combine price and quality.”  BadNyt, DEN

“The best finish and highest quality seen so far from this still developing south German budget boat builder. In combination with perfect balance and excellent feeling while sailing, this is definitely the boat that offers the most value for money in this category.” BatNytt, SWE

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

“Long-distance sailing has evolved from a dream of few to a reality for thousands of owners. Hence this new category, which the Boreal 52 wins convincingly. For higher latitudes there can hardly be a better boat.” YACHT, GER

“If you really want to enjoy the Boreal 52’s best side, you must prepare yourself for some bad weather. This aluminium yacht is made for sailing on planet Earth’s outer limits. It’s a tractor on the sea. Boreal is not for everyone, it’s for the special kind of people – the real sailors.” Seilas, NOR

“Designed to sail as far away as the polar circle or the remote channels of Patagonia, the Boreal gives it’s crew a really great protection from the wind and the cold. The good point is to know that the quality of insulation, the ease of maintenance and the stability of route are still very much appreciated when sailing under the sun.” Voile Magazine, FRA

“Every detail of the Boreal 52 is well-thought-out and based on the first-hand experience of the shipyard’s owners, experienced circumnavigators.” YachtRevue, AUT

“The ultimate go-your-own-way-cruiser, with an ideal separation between ‘sailing’ and ‘living’. Very good technical systems and a surprisingly nice sailing boat – also in light weather.” Waterkampioen, NED

“Not fast but very soft and not nervous, easy to steer and very gentle with the autopilot, entirely designed for real extreme navigations as well as for tropical cruising. And she is not too ugly, a rare quality for this kind of boat.” Fare Vela, ITA

“She offers comfort and safety, the doghouse is sheltered place that shows perfectly the concept. In every detail, one can feel bluewater-experience of the designers. And even though she weighs more than 15 tons, the sailing abilities are quite surprising.” marina.ch, SUI

“Boreal 52 is the kind of boat you would want to be on board for an expedition to … anywhere on the blue planet. It’s aluminium structure, the protected cockpit and the attention to functionality and details that will improve the safety level, is impressive.” BadNyt, DEN

“She is certainly not the most elegant yacht seen, but nevertheless a more than appropriate boat for any excursion, well equipped, safe and with outstanding sailing abilities.” BatNytt, SWE

Advanced Yachts 44

European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

Advanced Yachts 44 – European Yacht of the Year 2014/5 winner

“An extreme and expensive weekend fast sailer, which shows one of the best open-style hulls ever tested. We sailed the Advanced 44 in extreme conditions, not exactly her field, but she moved softly and powerfully in big and confused waves, as well as surfing for long periods in a very stable way, even when underpowered. Plus she has a very interesting interior concept.” Fare Vela, ITA

“If a boat deserves this nomination, it is the A44. Yes it is much too big for a day cruiser, much too expensive for the average sailor and much too powerful for a crew of two. But its sailing ability upwind is nothing short of fantastic – a characteristic that overruled the awkward sides of this beast.” Voile Magazine, FRA

“This disturbingly new yacht, which refuses to fit in any known market segment, elevates performance sailing to a new level. In cross-seas and fresh breeze she keeps her groove almost by herself, allowing fingertip steering and offering the finest feedback. Simply the best serial production big boat I have sailed to date. Its a Ferrari Enzo on the water: expensive, unreasonable, impractical – but oh so great.” YACHT, GER

“Italianità at its best! With the Advanced 44, an experienced crew will win regattas. But thuis it is also a luxury daycruiser and weekender.” marina.ch, SUI

“A small big yacht – The Advanced 44 has a cockpit of a 60 footer, and can keep a 60 footer’s pace through the water. We did 15 knots downwind with a gennaker in 18 knots wind! The upwind performance was like a racer. The interior is open, modern and stylish. This is Italian craft at its best.” Seilas, NOR

“The Advanced 44 is an individual design with extraordinary performance, smart styling, sophisticated deck-layout and a special atmosphere below deck.” YachtRevue, AUT

“A statement of what is to come to the keelboat market in the near future. It goes with the trend that weight is becoming essential for both the performance and in particular for the sensation of sailing.”   BadNyt, DEN

Pointer 25 is a 25 ′ 3 ″ / 7.7 m monohull sailboat designed by E. G. Van de Stadt and built by Jachtwerf Heeg (NED) starting in 2014.

Drawing of Pointer 25

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.

pointer 25 yacht test

# Product Trends

Like the Randmeer and the G2, the POINTER 25 was designed by the Van de Stadt Design studio. Jachtwerf Heeg asked the renowned designer to draw an elegant, modular boat for both the sporty sailor as well as the cruiser who wants to overnight on board in comfort.

The essence of the POINTER 25 is cabin yacht luxury in tandem with true sailing pleasure. The excellent sailing properties are the result of , among other things, the fathead mainsail, the furling jib that sits on a below-deck drum and the modern below the weaterline hull with a bulb keel and spade rudder. Singlehanded sailors can choose for a self-tacking jib.

With a draft of only 1.10m and an inboard diesel engine, this boat is highly suited for shallow offshore waters and lakes. The POINTER 25 falls into the CE category B rating, seaworthy. Based on personal modules, you can configure the POINTER 25 interior and equipment and style the boat to your own taste.

    A quick look at the sleek contemporary hull lines of the POINTER 25 tell you that this small yacht is about real sailing pleasure.
