But still, I find it interesting.

Hi Hans!,

The boat sails very well. The performance was not what was expected since we expected a rocket and this is a cruising boat. Even if the performance cannot match the one from the Pogo 10.50 it is very good for a long range cruising boat of that size.

I believe that some youth problems related with a somewhat heavy and insensitive helm were already solved by now and they have just launched the performance version that I had talked about some posts back:







That consists one a carbon mast with a single keel but two rudders and better sails (they don't talk about more sail area but it is possible that they just forget to mention it).

The Carbon mast is going to make an expensive boat even more expensive. The RM 1060, a 35ft was already more expensive than a Salona 38 and with this carbon mast and other mods it would probably sell at the same price of a Salona 41

For me the biggest problem of this boat is the price, that I find to high, but that's just my opinion.

Regarding the interior photos, the interior had not any alteration regarding the standard boat . I have already posted them on a previous post.

You can have a look at their site:
