Re: Interesting Sailboats

Some posts back I posted the Sly 38 but they have another new boat, the Sly 54 and don't ask me why they have changed the 53 that seemed still a very "new" boat. Take a look at the 53:

The 54 seems to have the same hull, a different bowsprit and a nicer interior with bigger hull ports, more practical for extensive cruising. Hard to improve on an almost perfect boat















They don't say but I believe that the boat will continue to weight about the same as a medium displacement 40ft and will have almost half its weight on ballast, almost all at 2.7m on a torpedo bulb. Yes, a very very stiff boat with a huge stability and the power to carry a big sail area.

I really like this one. The boat is narrow and even if the interior space has nothing to do with a Benetau Vision 50, It has just the right dimension for 4 people to live comfortably and because, as someone has said, the difficulty of handling the boat with a short crew has more to do with weight than with length, it should not be very difficult to sail solo, conservatively.

I will consider this one when I won the lottery.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

M34, not a nice name for a sailboat, especially for a good one.

The M34 is made by Archambault, it is a one class racer and the boat that is used for the "Tour de France" and for the French offshore crew championship. Take a look:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The "Around NZ race" still goes on and the results are informative about boats performance and they are specially interesting because there are all kind of boats there, old and new, racers and cruisers and they seem to be all very well sailed.

On the last leg the surprise was the very good performance of old cruising boats, with heavy weather and upwind sailing. The First 44.7 seems as good downwind as upwind.

Particularly an old SS 39 sailed by an old couple made an astonishing good result, coming 2th overall with 8 08:41:32 while the First 44.7 had done it in 7 20:36:37. Also a very good result from a cruising Cavalier 45 that took 3th with 8 09:00:15. The racing downwind boats were beaten with a Pogo retiring and the Tiller 10.5 and a Ross 12 doing respectively 9 14:55:00 and 8 09:24:26.

On the third leg they are having mostly downwind sailing and on those conditions the little Tiller 10.5 can go almost as fast as the big First 44.7 and the SS39 and the Cavalier 45 are a long, long way behind.

I have already posted this, but take a new look at the boats and see what I mean regarding upwind, overall good performance boats and downwind boats.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Have you heard about the BORA, the Adriatic wind? I never have met it but after this images I don't have any desire to encounter it!

Well, the Sig 45 is a great cat...but a lot smaller and I would say almost afordable. The MC2 will cost probably a fortune I like both a lot.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Hello,

Have you see the keel weight?
It is 1900 kg
It is heavier than a lot of competitors.
Are you sure the weight of your bavaria 36 is correct ? Is it a Bavaria wheight, or is it a real wheight?
Some yards report false wheight... Lighter than the real one

Bye
