There aren’t many 42ft yachts offering a stateroom with a centreline double bed. What this means is no more nights stuffed into a small space in high temperatures – and it affords a little bit of much needed ‘at home’ luxury. The design of the interior is all about safety at sea with lots of grabrails, and plenty of sea berths when underway. The galley area is large enough to cook in, but small enough to avoid being bounced around in a seaway..
Every knot matters, and the old 3 bladed lump of a propeller generated more drag than Dame Edna. This was not too much of a concern over short distancies, but when crossing oceans it certainly is. The replacement four-bladed Featherstream prop is a genuine credit to British engineering and innovation. The Poole-based Darglow engineering folks have created a nautical work of art: merging together form and function to create something that not only looks fantastic, but drives the boat through the water quickly under power both in forward and reverse – and is truly slick when under sail.
This sounds very cool… and it is.
Our Raymarine Evolution Autopilot, George, acts as an extra crew member and can steer the boat better than anyone, except the most focussed of racing helms, without complaint.
