Pop Star 21 building in progress
It is already well advanced the building of hull number 1 of our new design Pop Star 21
This first unit is being built by our client and friend Walter Baitella, from Córdoba, Argentina, who was also the first client for the Pop Alu 32 design.
Walter is an accomplished architect specialized in the construction of luxury resorts and his last project, named Hotel de Piedra Los Molinos, is located on a lake where a fleet of Pop Star 21 will be providing the guests the possibility of exhilarating high speed sails aboard this new design of modern conception.

The Pop Star 21 was designed for aluminum construction with state of the art CAD 3D modeling and offers CNC cutting files for the whole boat.
With its retractable keel and rudders the boat is well adapted to sailing in lakes, dams and rivers with shallow spots and can be easily trailered to and from home, eliminating storage costs or berthing needs. Coastal cruising and protected bays are also made safe by the sealed cockpit and deck construction, which assures flotation even in swamped conditions.
The aluminum construction ensures sturdiness and easy maintenance and should provide for high adrenaline sailing in strong winds without too many risks of breakage, or good speed in slight breezes due to the generous sail plan.
A more moderate and economical sail plan for relaxed sailing is also provided without the square top mainsail shown above.
We are pleased to be seeing the birth of this new class in Argentina with great possibilities for competitive sailing and also for relaxed trips and nautical camping, and with units of the design already sold to other countries we expect the same to happen elsewhere.
The oficial launch of the design will be done as soon as all descriptive material for the web pages is ready since the design work is all concluded, including the cutting files.
