Re: Interesting Sailboats
Odd that they mention nothing about the boat not having a traveler and how it sails without it. Maybe on the magazine they say something about that.
I am curious because Oluf is a great sailor and I it is hard for me to believe he would make a boat that could not be trimmed correctly. He had already used a boat with this type of main sail set up years ago on the 43DS.
The standard boat is delivered without traveler on all Luffe models. However, most buyers choose a removable traveler on the cockpit floor. The traveller is only 60 cm long (delimited by the narrow space) and enable you to trim the mainsail.
I have sailed the boat (#1) and it performes very well. Top speed 9.65 knots on flat water in a short windgust estimated 20-21 true wind.
