Re: Salona 60

Hi Paulo

There was a suggestion that Salona were in trouble financially and that this had been the case for some time. I don't know how reliable this was. Could be speculation. Surely though you...

Hi Paulo

Great insight into your personal likes and dislikes. There is one problem though. You never mentioned a Salona. If I were a betting man, I would put money on their being a Salona in your...

Re: Salona Yachts

Hi Paulo

One observation about Salona. They like to keep using their older hulls to save on costs. They did this with the Salona 38 which used the hull of the Salona 37 and the same for the Salona...

I have to say that if the Dehler 38 was gifted to me that I would be a very happy sailor. I love the design both interior and exterior.

Re: Hanse 325/345

Hi Paulo

There is a rumour that the new H345 will replace the 325 and the 355 which would then make sense - the range would then be 345, 385, 415, 445, 495, 545, 575 and 630e

When I was in Croatia last month, I noticed an Elan 350 with a bimini - not a helm bimini - with a slit/opening in it for the main sheet. It is the first time I have seen this.

Hanse

Hanse's new 5 series - 345 which replaces the 355, 385, 415, 445 etc - are aimed at the charter market. Nothing wrong with that but they are definitely more cruiser than performance...
