Even if one never competes in an offshore sailing race like the Pac Cup, the Mackinac, or the Vendée Globe or a local race like the Vineyard Cup or the Anacortes Race Week, sailors by and large appreciate speed. Today’s sailor wants a fast sailboat. Makes sense. We at Green Yachts appreciate fast sailboat designs for three reasons:
- It increases the percent of time on the water a sailor can sail and not use auxiliary power
- Faster sailboat designs allow electric propulsion systems to have greater range
- Sailing is more fun in a faster sailboat!
