Anyone wanting more information about the Saba 50

Hi Everyone. I have been following CF for quite a while now and no one has started a thread or posts any questions or information about the Saba 50. This post was also shared on the Multihull's Section of CF and I am now including it more specifically under the Fountaine Pajot category. Just to let folks know that we own one called "Lady Roslyn".Follow us on Facebook under the name Catamaran LadyRoslyn. We are sharing information about our journey - this amazing boat, what changes we make, what lessons we learn and what places are of interest along the way.

Re: Anyone wanting more information about the Saba 50

Hi.

We have just ordered a Saba 50 for delivery in La Rochelle in June 17. I am fairly OK with most things (I think). We have the optional bow sprit and am now looking to decide on sails for use (in addition to factory).

Any comments on your experience welcome. Am also considering a parasailor.

Re: Anyone wanting more information about the Saba 50

Congratulations on the purchase of your new Saba 50. You will not be disappointed with the decision. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. My direct mail is nic@wwh.co.za

If you are keen on buying a parasail spinnaker please read the blog post we wrote about the Wingaker which we will be buying this coming season. The owner of the company, Lothar Weber is an incredible sailor and really nice guy. He is amazingly knowledgeable about the setup and has been on board the Saba so knows how best to set it up. We have a Code 0 from the factory so have a winch on port stern area. If you are thinking of adding a parasail spinnaker like the Wingaker I would certainly recommend the you have the factory fit a winch to starboard stern area next to stern berth hatch. Much easier to manage the Wingaker and not have to have the starboard sheet running through two blocks back to helm area winches. We have bought an extra winch to fit but it's quite a job to remove the starboard stern berth headliner to fit the winch. Much better to just port and starboard stern winches factory fitted.

As an aside our family and friends all voted the ice maker in cockpit at saloon door area their favourite addition to the boat when sailing with us in June and July in Croatia.

Cheers for now.

Re: Anyone wanting more information about the Saba 50

Hi, I just took delivery of a new Saba 50 (Absinthe) a week ago. I have 2-3 months to make a number of modifications. Would it be possible to contact you directly to ask about a few things? I am finding it difficult to get good information online. Thanks. Michael

Could you bother to share if anything interesting in those question? (Which I suppose they are)
Thanks
