Ca na da boy Ca na da says:

There should be a mandatory course on showing a boat this guy really needs one ☝️.

Shawn B says:

I like his reviews because he always points out great points of the boat, but also points out it could use this or that. Unlike other reviews which just point out how fantastic everything is and it has no flaws at all. He knows his sailboats

ToastandJam52 says:

I liked the review. Got a question: how loud is the engine, especially below deck?

James Christopher Oden says:

The near flush anchor compartment and anchor line and chain, make it a clearer weather deck while moving around attending to running rigging, and mast head lines. while providing dual guiding to below the waterline.

theboarman says:

what freaks me about the sail boats is the fact how far they go to one side

speedxdreems says:

” ir rounded up once or twice ” hmmm lets see a few do a full circle and some southern ocean at 5-600000….

Filmgear35 Movies says:

Johan Westerberg says:

Dale Buckley says:

bombingbloke says:

kykyzim24 says:

What was the name of the stove?

Mike D says:

Not bad. Way too much heeling and no counter space in the galley. What year did it come out?

Baheej Ibrahim says:

Ca na da boy Ca na da says:

No bow thruster. No water maker?

I used to sail back in the 80’s & boat design has come so far since then. All the little details have been thought out & major things like swim steps, running all the lines back to the cockpit and roller furling jibs are standard now. We got a roller furling system around 1982 or 83 & it wasn’t cutting edge but it got attention around the marina. People wanted to see it & ask how we liked it.
No doubt sailing is still work but new designs have added many conveniences & gotten rid of many of the daily hassles. I really like many new boats out nowadays. Hopefully I will be able to eventually get out on the water again.

Peter & Dawn says:

Would love to see more comparison versus the Garcia 45… her sister ship? How’s the engine access… eg. change the starter, belts, impeller ok

jacob juul says:

Fixed keel, analog controls on all sail management and rudder option, fresh water maker system, fuel cleaning system and just 1 steering wheel and this would be my dream world cruiser, i am in love 🙂

onthebeaches1 says:

So, what do you do during imminent weather on a long journey. It would seem you’re exposed with the wheel at the back of the boat. I prefer a center cockpit
