CHASE THE STORY | OUTFITTING A BOAT TO SAIL AROUND THE WORLD

OUTFITTING A BOAT TO SAIL AROUND THE WORLD: WHAT WE BOUGHT, WHAT WE LEARNED & WHAT WE’D DO DIFFERENTLY

image1-10

This a must read post, Tasha has written a fun and informative post for all to read and glean a better understanding of the benefits of a Fountaine-Pajot Multihull.

This is probably obvious, but it needs to be said: we LOVE our boat. There is no such thing as the perfect boat, of course, but there is the right boat for the journey you’re planning. And we definitely made the right choice of boat for us and this round-the-world trip.

The main things we love? The comfort and the performance. Even with crew on board, having upgraded from a 34-foot monohull, we feel positively spoiled for space. And contrary to common lore about catamarans, the Helia sails beautifully – she’s fast and light, especially going downwind, and she’s not that bad pointing upwind, either, though it’s not Cheeky Monkey‘s most comfortable point of sail. Yes, there is some slapping of waves under the hull when beating into rough weather, but it’s no more disturbing than what we’ve experienced on monohulls in stormy conditions. Also, we love the modern layout, the brightness and the incredibly spacious and comfortable cockpit, which is where we spend most of our time on board.
For us and this journey sailing around the world, the Helia is about as perfect as a boat can get.
