ALL controls are at your fingertips and use Seawind’s refined short handed sailing optimization system to provide ultimate control from the helm, avoiding the need to go forward for virtually any task! When attempting long ocean passages with friends and family, this type of safety and design practicality gives owners confidence not only in their boats ability but also for the safety of themselves and their family.
