This is magnificent boat
, in my opinion.
There are only three things I don't like about it - too sporty (too small inside), doesn't have flybridge (unfortunately, I became addicted to one) and "a little" too expensive.
But I absolutely love idea of "indoor" helm
station. Be inside during the rain, bad weather
, hot weather
and still have full (almost) control of the boat
during both sailing and motoring -that's nice. What do you think?
Some "true sailors" won't like this, I'm sure. But let's put emotions aside.
Let's also put aside "electronic crew member" (as per video) - that would be difficult to duplicate.
Here's question - how hard to create similar helm
station on existing catamaran
? Let say there is Sanya 57 with helm station on flybridge. Create second helm station inside. Reroute all the lines inside saloon
, mount reversible winches by helm station (away from weather), buttons to operate them, second steering wheel
(as the one on Rapier). Do you think this is doable at all?
