Welcome to
the new Machine M-5

Coming off an impressive overall 4th place PWA ranking in the hands of Julien Quentel, the Machine program has arrived as a proven an undeniable force on the water. Based on race results, real time testing, and careful study, the Avanti design team is proud to introduce the next step in a quest for perfection.


Machine M-5

After my first year on Avanti Sails, I’m very pleased to take reign of the new M5. Dan has done wonders with this new evolution of the Machine. The membrane is lighter, has no speed limit, can hold more wind and is more durable than a regular monofilm construction. Let the action begin right now!
– Julien Quentel (SXM-421)

Machine 1

Advanced Fibers

 Black and Gold Twaron fiber ensure sails that are super light, low-stretch, and impact resistant.

 Updated Fiber Map. HotSpot clew to luff trajectories, and more fiber on the head to tack load line keep shape locked and control twist, especially up high.

 Ultra Lightweight. Feather Weight Construction puts this sails weight 15-20% under industry standard

Light Weight Answers

 Carbon Tube Battens. Ultra-light, high-performance, 3 step battens are carefully tailored to lock draft in place. Custom Nylon end fittings reduce membrane wrinkles and distortion.

 Overlap Pockets. Overlapping panels create internal batten sleeves, generally 30% lighter than industry standard Dacron pockets. The innovative design creates a rigged symmetry with battens placed in the middle of the membrane, rather than on one side or the other.

Machine 3


Performance Upgrades

 Dual Pane window now extends into the sock to give rider a little more vision to leeward and ahead.

 Re-worked, super-full, yet super-smooth foot batten shaping, combined with new batten profiles, keep foot batten rotation from hanging up.

 Improved batten specs, create a more even foil shape throughout.


Machine 4


New 3D Shaping

 3D Shaping. A more blunt, draft-forward leading edge delivers forgiveness over large angles of attack, giving rider a fast wide sailing groove, especially beneficial in difficult sea states and gusty conditions.

 Extra deep camber from the boom down. Full foot shaping inceases lift and drive. Extra perimeter tension below the boom and extending up the low leech eliminates unwanted twist, or blowout along foot edge.

 Code Zero Luff Sleeve Material. With a balance of subtle feel and a controlled stretch profile, Avanti’s new durable sleve material from Dimension Polyant raises the bar on leading edge stability.

Machine 7


New Sizes

 New 9.2 sail size reconsiders the needs of top racers and the PWA rules.

 Increased shaping along the sock sew down line eliminate leeward side hardspots where sock meets sailbody.

Machine 5

Specific Improvements

 New foot roach sits slightly higher, and can handle a wider array of board rockers while still creating an unmatched aerodynamic fence.

 New luff curves and profiling add to the outstanding acceleration and blistering top end.

– A totally new fiber map moves loads further back in sail skin, better supporting upper level twist.
