Combines a sharp sense of styling with an underwater profile that gives cruisers some speed and comfort
Reviewed Oct 2016
During my test sail in the breeze of early summer in Spain, I sailed the boat flat as you would do on a non-chined hull, and then put her slightly on her ear to test the difference in speed and handling. It became immediately evident that the slight heel really gave an almost black and white contrast. The speed increased, the rudders dug in and she cut through the waves instead of going over them.
Due to the amazing beaminess of the Sense, the angle really made no difference to life on-board in terms of brewing a cup of tea, using the heads down below or moving around in the cockpit. As is fairly standard on deep-chined yachts, the Sense comes with twin rudders, which really give an amazing feel to steering and would certainly reduce fatigue over longer periods when you can’t use the auto-pilot; such as the shipping lanes that we encounter so much across Asian waters...
