Thank you for that CaptainJay....
One critical question, is the rig any taller? I mean it would do me no good to keep think ingabout it if it was only the same rig as on the Helia... ????
There is a massive Sanya 57 just down from me, and rig does not appear to be any bigger than just the Helia. It would have no hope of doing much sailing to weather
I am told it is a few years old, but looks completely out of proportion short rigged..
Anyway, my Helia is about 20 Meters off the water to the mast head
. I mean maybe just under, measured 20.6 M to top of antennae that could be 800-900 mm. CaptainJay, did you see any specs on the mast
For any other interested Cruisers, IMO the Helia 44 might be considered a little on the large size for two people, but IMO perfect luxury... for us. Mind you we do not even use the port 2 Queen Staterooms heads and showers unless my kids
or guests come along..
Kind regards to all, Helia 44
