I think they only give that impression... Välkommen till Comfortbåtar

I must admit the boat is actually surprisingly fast for weighing this much. For example, we were only 25 seconds slower than a brand new Dufour 36E Performance (ok, not a light boat either) (see attached pic, sorry for low res!) pimped out with square top main, skippered by Anna Drougge (whitbread + volvo ocean race sailor and swedish match race champion). Total time for us was just over 11 hours during 4 days.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Dear Sailors
I am glad to find this site since the information nested here are valuable. Although i thought i knew everything about yachting, i was pleasantly suprised to learn about yacht perfectly strange to Cyprus, such as JPK, Mylius, Heol,NM, and all the other gems.
I personally prefer racing and i am considering a 35-40 cruiser racer but decision is not foreseen to be easy

Yes, they said on the boat tests that the Dufour 36 performance was fast...well, I have my doubts. I think that a top specs Salona 35 will be way faster.

The important is having fun and it seems you have a lof of it

Welcome on board

What boats are you considering and what type of racing are you considering: Around the cans, offshore, with crew, duo or solo?

Indeed we did, racing is (almost!) always fun! The boat suits my brothers needs very well I think, I on the other hand find it difficult to settle with displacement speed...

I know you have posted about the SIG45, here is a new video:

Now that looks sweet!

Sig 45 and Vor 70

Great boat the Sig 45. Thanks for posting

Another great movie, this one from the VOR, showing that rough time I had already talked about:

I race around the cans and usually one extended regatta every year. We sail with crew but a short handed boat is really tempting since it can save you from considerable logistics issue. Last year i crewed on a SWAN 45 which had 12 crew, and it was a pain in the*** for the skipper to coordinate.
I like elan 350, however i did not understand the rational behind the placement of the mainsheet track.

Halberg Rassy 412: First images

The boat does not look as modern as the 372 and that transom that looked badly designed to me, is really badly designed.

The 372 has the same problem but not so visible. Strangely the 412 looks more massif on the transom and on the last 1/3 of the boat. It’s odd because a longer hull should contribute to make it a slimmer boat and that is not the case. Take a look, first the 412 then the 372:




I am not talking about the hull that seems to be modern and efficient. The boat uses high tech sails and it looks to sail well. It seems that HR continues its progression towards faster and better sailing boats.

Looking from forward the boat looks just great:



But the guy at the wheel looks like it is in the bath room, you know doing what.



The wheel is pulled back on the cockpit to provide a big space forward and that would not be a problem if the cockpit was open, but like it is the space for the wheelsman is too small:





The profile is typically Halberg-rassy, no ugly but a bit like if they wanted a aft cockpit boat to look like a center cockpit boat.





I guess the inconditional traditional fans will be satisfied and the ones that hoped for a more modern boat a bit disapointed. Even so it is a good looking boat except when you look it from the back.
