Design & Performance

The Dragonfly 920 Touring model, produced since 2005, is based on the well known Dragonfly 920 Cruising and Racing version which was first launched in 1996. The Touring version is equipped with a new design of curved beams similar to the Extreme version and the longer mainsail boom of the previous Dragonfly 920 Racing version.

The Dragonfly 920 Extreme model was introduced in 2003. It is based on the same centre hull as the Touring version, but has wider curved beams in a new modern design and also longer floats, a taller rig and a deeper full carbon rudder and centerboard to improve performance. The Dragonfly 920 Extreme is approx. 15 % faster than the standard Touring version.

For people who focus more on cruising, the Dragonfly 920 Touring offers less heeling and shallow draft wich are very important, making it the perfect boat for newcommers in the multihull scene. The Extreme version is for the keen sailor, who wants more speed and fun in the fast lane. 

The Dragonfly 920 sleeps 4 people, has a separate head and offers a nice pleasant main cabin with very good visibility. With the sprayhood, cockpit tent and the cockpit table, you will find ample living space in all weathers.

Maintenance

To inform and illustrate recommended service, maintenance, and refitting on an older Dragonfly, we have drawn this general information sheet. Rough elements, like strong winds and wave conditions, strong saltwater and UV do have some impact on the boat after a long sailing life.

We strongly recommend servicing and changing vital parts on your boat according to our recommendations. This information overrules any other former information you may have, as the following is based on updated knowledge.

RIGGING
Visual check of all cables is still required when changing the rigging. When trailering the boat, we strongly recommend focusing on side stay cables, as these easily bend when stepping the mast. Bended side stay cables near the terminal may cause the side stay cable to break.

On all Dragonflys, please regularly check the forestay cable in the top by the terminal. When furling, the spinnaker halyard may block the forestay, which can cause failure of the forestay.

TRAMOLINES
On all Dragonflys, we recommend re-stitching (sewing) along the seems of the trampolines every 6-7 years (in climates with strong UV, every 5 years). Normally, our clients change their trampolines after 10-12 years use.

FLOAT DECK TEFLON PAD RINGS
On Dragonflys built after 1989, the white 5 mm Teflon pad rings on the float deck need to be changed every 13-15 years – this is neither critical nor structural. For easy change of these pads/rings, you just bolt off the floats from the wings.

QUICK-LINKS
Over the years, Quorning Boats has used the riggings links, so-called Quick-Links, in the Dragonfly production. When replacing these, it is of utmost importance to purchase links of same high quality or similar products carrying same strength (working load). Many products look the same, but do not carry the same strength.

ORDERING PARTS
Original parts can be ordered at Quorning Boats at aftersales@dragonfly.dk

Common spare parts can be shipped within two weeks, whereas special parts and/or custom-made parts usually are served within 6-8 weeks.

For orders below EUR 100.- excl. VAT, we charge a handling fee of EUR 15.-

IMPORTANT
Parts ordered at Quorning Boats Denmark, will be produced in originally designed materials. Should you choose to order from other suppliers, please check that the same kind of materials are used – especially on the waterstays and other rigging parts, where stronger Dyeform cables are needed.
