Owner's Comments:


When we were looking to buy a catamaran, my primary concern was safety with an ability to sail well. Since owning R5 I have sailed down to the med and back for two summers. I would leave with a couple of crew, and my family would fly out once we got there. The most we had on her at one time was 6 of us, and it was comfortable and worked well.

Sailing in the UK, the covers are always on, we are warm and safe inside as all sailing can be done from the saloon. Once we had crossed Biscay and reached Spanish waters the covers come off and it’s like having a different boat. There are secure hatches down to the cabins, so security is never a concern and the covers don’t go on again until a similar position on the return journey. On the first journey home we encountered a F10 subtropical storm in Biscay...sub-tropical storm Stephanie. We had 6-7 m seas, with occasionally waves breaking over the top of the boat. All the covers were on and we were inside in normal clothes… safe and dry!
