Looks interesting. I think the sail plan is more of a steady the boat then sail the boat. It will take 15 knots of wind to even move the boat. good luck. My wife thinks we should up size but I am happy where we are. The 47 is a round the world boat with the Bahama draft.

On a beam reach she steps out nicely. Extremely comfortable under way. Just left Bahia Del Sol in El Salvador winds we at 24 before I even noticed them. Had the boat in winds of 35 twice. Both times were running down wind, was like sitting in a rocking chair. The Woods Freeman auto pilot never missed a beat. She's not built for speed, she's built for comfort.
Sounds like a nice boat. Very cool.

This 57 seems big. Have not been on it yet and wondering how to sail it from the flybridge.

Yeah the sail area looks pretty puny, but do you think this sail will be enough as a get home system? I'm really looking at this as a sail assisted trawler, and also wanted to use the sail as a steadying system to help fight roll while underway.

Think this would be a good boat to take to the Caribbean?

This boat is in Fort Lauderdale and I'm in Texas. Wish someone local could put their eyes on it to see if it's worth flying down to look.
