RIG FOR BLUE WATER CRUISING
Out in the cockpit again you can operate the anchor by a remote control on the steering pedestal. The anchor is self-launching so you do not need to go to the anchor to manually start the process.
The rig has triple spreaders, which are only swept back three degrees resulting in extra stability and are not in the way when sailing downwind. Furthermore, there is a jumpstay that gives additional stability when using the permanent hydraulic cutterstay. The permanent cutterstay gives freedom and comfort for ocean crossings.
The D4-180 engine hums pleasantly and it is evident that there is a very good torque even at 1100 RPMs. You can achieve 8 knots at 1400 RPM. Strongly contributing is the efficient three bladed, two geared, Gori folding propeller.
SAILING IN HARMONY AND CONTROL
The mainsail is furled out hydraulically and also the outhaul is hydraulically controlled, which means you can handle it even under load. The vang and the backstay are also hydraulically controlled from a panel in the cockpit at the helm position. There is both a genoa and a permanent cutter stay and both are of course hydraulically controlled from the cockpit. The powerful headsail winches are electrically driven with a soft start. The yacht accelerates as soon as the wind fills the sails. The rudder feel is exact and controlled. There is a feeling of total harmony and control. Control over an impressive yacht that will take you anywhere in any weather with the smallest crew. That's a nice feeling of security.
