Looks like about $222 (US) if the price shown is in Russian Rubles

A "touch" spendy given there is no review as of yet - but close enough in price not to scare folks away. Probably has similar issues as with the original DF65 - needs aftermarket/different sails to identify individual owner's boats. Maybe they all come with number 19 - in which case most sails with numbers can be binned and aftermarket sails WITHOUT numbers required. Not sure about the "pointy" tipped rudders and where that design came from. Vang may need work/adjustments and a single, center mounted keel blade is questionable for weather/lee helm as the boat heels and significant square inches of keel are lifted from water. Hard to see as clicking for enlargement just changes photo angle.

Maybe Joysway got "P'O - ed" about comments on the DF65 introduction and prototypes and decided to introduce in Russia?

Translated:
Length 655 mm
the width 116 mm
the height 915 mm

It has two keels, one on each hull..at least in the pictures on the russian site.

Do you have some other source regarding the single keel blade? ..or is it just a case of smudgy goggles?
