I had the privilege
of skippering a Salina 48 Evolution on a delivery
trip from Brisbane
where this Catamaran
was to be displayed at the boat show
. The weather
conditions were totally against us due to a deep low off the NSW coast ( 4 metres swell with a 1.5 metres sea and 30 to 35 knots on the nose) , and being a seasoned monohull
sailor I had my doubts as per the capabilities of reaching our destination
What i discovered was an incredibly sea worthy vessel which handle the conditions without any problems while achieving great SOG sailing with a 45 to 50 degrees wind
angle for most of the journey .
The owner and his spouse were on board and at all time felt safe and comfortable .
My conclusion , I would go anywhere around the world with this great catamaran
and this is without any doubt the perfect vessel for a circumnavigation
Thanks to the MHS's team for this great opportunity .
