Oh, what a joy it was to sail hull #1 of the new Salona S460 in Croatia.
As a yacht broker, I get to sail a lot of different boats. In general, I find that 30-foot sailboats are easy to handle, but slow. Performance sailboats above 40 feet and most production sailboats above 50 feet go faster, but can be a handful to sail because their sail area is so big and steering can be unwieldy.
Why can’t a sailboat be powerful and easy to handle?
Well, sailing world, I would like you to meet the new Salona S460 – the fast, yet easy to sail 44-foot sailboat.
