Hope the boat owner doesn't get mad at me for putting this up but I know there is a lot of interest in the Saba
. I am sure he will weigh in when they get back to land.
For anyone wondering about reported numbers and sailing ability on the Saba
here is a link to the tracker on board Cuvee. This is hull
number 2 the boat displayed and judged at the Annapolis Boat Show
last year. The owner is sailing the boat north for the summer they left Monday from our base in St Thomas.
Keep in mind this is a loaded charter
boat. 25 gallon an hour water
maker. 2 Fridges, a freezer
an ice maker, 6 air conditioners, a 13.5 kw genset, 12 foot tender
and a 15 hp outboard
. We also fit out a fifth bathroom and crew cabin
in the starboard for peak complete with a fifth holding tank
. The boat is making very good time.
As for build quality, this boat sailed from France
for the show, then down here last fall and is now heading back to Annapolis
for the summer with no major issues. We have done some minor tweaking to the boat but FP got this boat right from the start.
