Re: Interesting Sailboats

I don't know if it has been mentioned but the boat brand that started this thread off way back, Sirus, has moved ahead with their new 40DS. Here is a 3D of it.



These are really cool pilot houses for northern latitudes and they put tons of thought into the design with lots of owner feedback. The site is full of images where they are test fitting the interior with mockups.



And here is the first hull.


Very beautiful boats and definitely interesting. Hope this wasn't a dupe but was checking out their site and couldn't help but be interested in the updates.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I don't particularly like the lines of that boat but for where I sail (55 north or higher) its pretty much exactly what I want. Or a boreal, or an ovni, or a Garcia. Never mind!

Nice to see the design process much lower tech than I would have expected.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I would think that for high latitude sailing, low tech would be the way to go.

If I was possessed enough to sail north of Alaska or south of Cape Horn, I think a Brentboat or similar would be what I'd want.

It is funny that you that live and sail on high latitude think the boat is suited while some that don't sail there see it as too sophisticated.

Many think about high latitude as uncharted waters but that is not the case in Alaska? or North of Europe. I don't now Alaska but on the North of Europe plenty of nice little ports and interesting places to visit. The boat is not designed as an exploration boat but as a very comfortable boat to live and sail on high latitudes (civilized) countries and for that I think it is a sweet boat. It is also a boat designed for the older (solo) sailor and for those mechanical and hydraulic help is needed to substitute the lost youth and force. Anyway, the boat will be so expensive that probably only the very rich or the very old will have the money to afford it

Re: Interesting Sailboats

I think that the more real experience you get in a specific area tends to modify what you think works best.Beauty is in the eye of the owner or wanna be but working your way through chockablock bergy bits in a 5 foot swell or finding the beach to seaward because all the water went somewhere else as the wind changed (charts not withstanding) indicates a more specialized hull form and robustness may be required for a successful voyage outside the marina showplace.

Or, on the other hand, just take it easy and glide along home.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

The Sirus 40DS looks pretty good. But looking at their website I noticed they use twin rudders some of their other models. I have no idea why anyone doing serious cruising in high lats would want twin rudders.

I notice that expedition type trawler to starboard of FL is listing to port - it it from Anacortes as well?

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Metacentric heights not in the vocabulary of some NAs. Same dude that designed the Korean ferry ,now living in Anacortes.'Twenty degrees to port, helmsman! Oops!!
