Re: Interesting Sailboats

Looks... Boring...

I don't like these boats that aren't really fast but optimized to be fast to their rating.

Comet 41s

I have been told that my boat is strong but without prove I abstained myself about commenting on that. Well, today I had the prove that I would preferred not to have: I was rammed full speed astern at almost the middle of the boat by a 50 ton wooden motorboat .

That was frightening, the motorboat had a malfunction on the commands and just keep coming astern till hit my anchored boat. These professionals with big motorboats like to show off using big power to turn the boat around and the result was full speed astern. the boat should be doing more than 6K when it hit my poor boat.

To aggravate the situation the impact was not with the motorboat hull but with the steel structure of the swinging platform (much more narrow). The result was just some deep scratch on the gelcoat and I would not be surprised if some delamination would have happened (even if not visible) since all impact was on the cored hull zone and very localized.

The impact was just huge and the British skipper of the near by old Camper and Nicholson could not believe the boat was not holed.

The interior wood work is all good. I have to take it apart to see if the fiberglass is okay. Never saw anything like this and it had just to happen to me.

Now, that is bad luck

By the way, it happened on the Vulcano Island near Messina straight.

So, does that mean you only like foiling multihulls?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Paulo -

Wow! Really sorry to hear about your misfortune. But very glad there doesn't appear to be any serious damage. This is the last thing anyone wants to experience on a cruising vacation. Keep us posted and I trust you acquired the insurance information from the motoryacht skipper.

Solaris One 37 from Serigi Yachts

Now that Paulo has got me hip to Italian yachts, I've been on the lookout for them. As I was glancing at the list of competitors in Class A at the recent ORCi 2013 Championships, I came across the Solaris 36 OD, which lead me to the Serigi Yachts web site.

There, I discovered the gorgeous One 37, designed by famous Argentinian NA Javier Soto Acebal (Soto 40, Soto 30). At first, I couldn't believe it was an 11.2M yacht, since it looks closer to a 12-12.2M. The boat looks fast and elegant at the same time, and the quality of fit/finish extraordinary. No doubt this is a very expensive boat and it shows, both on the exterior and interior.

Here are two excellent videos, showing the boat under sail and at the boat show.

Solaris One 37 - YouTube

Solaris 37 by eyachts new yachts for sale - YouTube
I have posted about it about one year ago when you were not around. The thread has a search motor (not the one from the site) try it and you will find plenty information and even a comparison with the Salona 38 that shares some of the characteristics even if not such a luxurious interior. Well, it is probably faster, I mean the Salona, and much less expensive and that counts too in my book. The Solaris 37 is a great boat, I would prefer it over for instance a HR 372.

About the boats competing on the ORCI world championship, there are at least one that I had not posted about. For you to find out. It is a very interesting one but much more of a race boat than the Solaris, even if it has also a cruising potential and a relatively good interior.



Regards

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Since I am stuck at the Vulcano Island till the accident and the insurance is sorted out, at least I have an internet café and as I have the need to go there for emails, I will post a beautiful boat for you guys to sort it out (Island of Ponza). It is Italian, no doubt and has a carbon bimini. How cool is that!!!





Regarding the Vulcano Island, the place where Mr Spot seems to have born, I could be stuck in a worst place

We'll have to wait a bit for reviews and video footage, but sitting in the water the boat looks good - very similar to the J/70 and J/111 in general appearance. Can't wait to see one in person.

I used your pictures on sailinganarchy j/88 thread. I have one on order and im going to test sail the 88 on july 15 ! will report!

This must have been a horrible experience, Paulo!

But if nobody was hurt and your further investigations confirm there is no structural damage, I certainly hope you will soon be able to pursue your route without further delay.

And enjoy it fully, so this will only remain as a bad but fading memory.

Best regards,

Eric

If you want to race, you certainly must look for the best performance/rating ratio.
But if you just like to sail fast outside of the racing context, you don't have to bother about this kind of compromises.

So I 'd also like a J if I were a pure racer, but I also think there are better designs for those who just only want to be fast.

Multihulls of course, unbeatable if you can live with the inevitably very restricted interior. Otherwise there are nowadays plenty of sufficiently comfortable monohull designs that also allow you to easily overtake most racers on the water. In a (fast) cruising point of view, without any formal racing and rating concerns.

So it's once again all about priorities, but as a (performance) cruiser: I fully agree, Robelz!

Best regards,

Eric
