Cruising yacht that does the miles
Reviewed Jul 2017
I launched my Adams 42 ft Bluewater yacht Malua in 2004 and sailed Tassie then the Pacific followed by 5 years in the Mediterranean. It is a great boat to just cruise from anchorage to anchorage but when I crossed the Atlantis to the Caribbean the true colours of this great design came to the fore. I was well up with the 50 footers with 170 nm a day every day. The two fuel tanks give you 1000 nm range but the ease of reefing and sailing down wind you cover the miles. In 2014 I crossed the Pacific alone. The longest passage 20 days from Galapagos. Here again I passed vessels much larger with ease and safety.
The vessel has all the systems to make life easy - power winches, AIS, Radar, chart plotters, SSB radio, spring mattresses and more. Just comfort to cruise.
