The new GT-R Plus swaps the 95 Standard fuselage for the new 95 Plus fuselage.
This new fuselage shifts the front wing forwards and reduces tail wing angle to make it more aligned with the front wing, creating what we call a High Efficiency Foil Geometry (NZ Pat. App. No. 751177). With both wings flying through the water at more parallel angles, you release more speed, you get quicker acceleration and more control.
"It's like someone released the handbrake" Gonzalo Costa Hoevel, PWA Foil Champion.
Choose this foil if you want a racing allrounder. It's fast, it goes upwind and flies on the reach without being too powerful.

Note: the 95 Plus fuselage is supplied with six angle spacers ranging from -2 degrees to +1 degree. The recommended Tail Wing Angle Spacer for the GTR Plus is -1.5 degrees or -1 degree:
-2° for wind speeds of 25+ knots
-1.5° for wind speeds of 15-25 knots (recommended default angle)
-1° for wind speeds of 12-14 knots
-0.5° for wind speeds of 10-12 knots
-0° for wind speeds of 8-9 knots
+1° for wind speeds of 7 knots
These suggested tail wing angles are based on the 330 tail wing and 800 front wing. Your optimum tail wing angle may differ depending on your tail wing size, your body weight, sail size, sailing style, personal preferences and front wing size.
The 95 Plus fuselage is also available as a seperate upgrade item. Contact your nearest Starboard Foil Specialist Centre for more information and availability.
