For all of you out there that are looking for a great preforming catamaran
look at a used Dolphin 460. Thirty plus built and no structural failures. I have own my Dolphin since new in 2007 and I can tell you without reservation I have been very happy. I have own many boats during my lifetime and this Dolphin 460 for cruising has been perfect. If you have any questions or wish to learn more about the Dolphin 460 please post and I will respond. As for my polars, in 12 knots of true wind
, no current
and calm seas, I will be sailing at AWA 34 with a SOG of 7.5k. If the wind
goes up to 14k my AWA can change to 33 with a SOG of 8.5k. With so many things that will change these numbers I would rather just say that I generally will be sailing higher and faster than most monohulls.
