well if I am not mistaken its WL is almost 2m longer, so that seems quite a bit and given that you pay 200k Euro or 50% of the Helia more for a Saba, that space must be worth a lot...
guess that comes down to personal preferences, but what would be a deterrent for me is that even in the Maestro version, you get a minimum of 4 cabins and an unbeblievable 4 heads. For a circumnavigation with a couple or familiy with occasional guests, this is really overkill for me and basically a waste of the space the Saba otherwise would offer. So I would tend to agree with Nasa that Saba is clearly a charter baby.
And by the way, peteh007, from all the pics and vids that I have seen on the net, the anchoring
systems seems to be identical set up for both, Saba and Helia, so that will probably not solve your tandem anchoring issues. On the other hand, I really can't imagine this to be the decisive point. Your primary anchor should be sufficient for any 'normal' situations up to what 35-40 maybe. The Helia will fit a 40kg Rocna
, so that together with all chain should keep you in the spot in most circumstances. And if you really feel the need to anchor in tandem, then the secondary obviously needs to go over the bow and for getting it up again, you attach a line a little longer than the secondary chain and rig a feeder line from the bow under the trampoline to the anchor looker, so once the primary is secured, you get the trip line for the secondary to the bow and lift
it up. Agree it will be some work and not that easy as pushing a button, but for the few times you may need it, it should be ok. For me it's a trade-off for the benefit of having the weight of the primary not at the bow but rather close to the center.
