Sirius 40 DS

Hi,

Even though I´m more of a multi hull kind of sailor, there is this one boat builder that keeps surprising me, once with the 35 DS and now the 40DS.
Knowing this is a semicustum yacht, I was wondering if there is somebody here that has sailed one?
I know about the price....but with these features come with a cost.
The only thing that I wonder (therefore the question) is the sail/weight ratio because everything else is Spot On

Let me know your thoughts!

Re: Sirius 40 DS

could be little early for customers references about 40 DS, because it 's a brandnew model, presented at BOOT '15 in Düsseldorf. Sirius is a small yard, craftmanship at its best, just around the corner to me..

Re: Sirius 40 DS

I've been in the 35 and they have a hell of a lot of space for their length. The sailing review I read (Sailing Today?) was quite favourable for them as well - not a racehorse, but definitely comfortable and capable.

Re: Sirius 40 DS

Hello,

Well I´ve been looking at several boat models for a while.
The Sirius just feels right.
The deck saloon made me never want to go back to the normal going "down closed dark cabin", and it made me look at monohulls a different way.
The midship cabin makes so much sense.
And that engine room/acces/workplace, it´s like the answer to what I´ve wished/envisioned in my future boat .
I was just wondering if the sailing ability of the 40 was upgraded comparing to the 35 witch is said to be OK, but as it has been written here it´s problably too soon to have feedback on this.
