Hi Chimbatete,

Thanks for posting!

Yes the Malango is a very nice boat but not with the same RM vocation. The RM is made for long range cruising, the Malango is more a day sailer and weekend cruiser, specially the one you have posted. The photo you have posted is not from the 9.99 but from the the first sailboat they have made, the smaller one, the 870.

The 9.99 is a bit more ambitious and it is, like the 870, a pleasure to sail. the 9.99 has two cabins while the 870 only has one. Like the 870, it has a huge cockpit but the interior space and storage are enough for coastal cruising. The boat has a very small tankage, to make it light and fun to sail, but with some modifications to increase the tankage this one can take a couple for long range cruising and even across the pond.

A very nice boat indeed, I would say, a sexy boat:











































and this boat can really go fast. Look at the movie:
