  7. QUESTION – Why would anyone get a monohull sailboat instead of a catamaran? I want to WANT to get an HR55 sailboat, but I can't tell if that is some stubborn thinking on my part, or whether there is an advantage to doing a world tour on a sailboat. I just can't figure this one out… (money is not really the issue when considering this)

  8. I would rather have an old Islan Packet with over an inch thick hull, feeling safe weeks away from land is more important to me. Thats not to say this isn't a safe boat but if it was my family give me an old sailboat with a more protected rudder for the off shore cruising.

  19. I may be among a minority, but when sailing boats get this big they become somewhat boring to helm and crew. Too big, too much to comfortably manage and maintain without a full-time crew, and moorings are limited.

  28. Very nice looking vessel, but where do you put the life rafts and dinghy? That would clutter up the deck a little wouldn't it?

  29. The furler makes the headsail look like a sack. Ridiculous on a boat of this perfect standard.

  30. What a gorgeous thing. Its only real ostentation is its sheer size, everything else is beautifully understated luxurious perfection.
