I got to get on the new Voyage 480 yesterday, in Annapolis
. I admit up front, that I like Voyage cats. They have taken the 450 and increased the length but also widened the hulls, giving a higher bridge deck
clearance. It has been rearranged inside to allow foot entry beds, the showers were very nice and roomy for a 6'3 big guy. The Salon
is open and feels like a larger boat. The cockpit
is very similar in feel to the 520. Dingy landing areas have been created on the sugar scoops like the larger boats too. These serve as a nice place to sit and enter the water
with dive gear
First reports are the boats sails
very well, I am looking forward to a test sail after the show. I have been told it has the same rig as the 520 has also.
Hope everyone enjoys the show!
