thank you for your interest in my wellbeing.
Yes, I' m still happy with my EDEL 43. We made a lot of miles in the
Atlantic and mediteranian waters, without any problems. The longest
trip took us 9 days, tacking, back from the island Madeira
, direction to the Acores Islands and the to Gibraltar
. This was hard work, against wind
and the waves, no
our best idea, but we were under time pressure, to bring our guests to the airport
So, the resume of this journey was, that we would wish more bridgedeck clearance on our next catamaran, when we go windward. But the tacking, she made with good result. The catamaran goes close to the wind
, is easy to handel, and also maneuvering on a crowded anchorage under sails
is a pleasure for me, not always for the dreaming boat owners in their cockpits, which react often shocked, when we pass them, in short distance and loudless with high speed.
However the Edel 43 was build for sailing. Under deck
it has only the space of a modern 38 ft houseboat catamaran, but on sea you have the comfort of 43 ft.
It is made for tropical or subtropical waters, because you are not very sheltered by a large deckshouse. Therefore you enjoy the cooling
breeze in the cockpit
If you want more detailled information, please let me know.
