Owner's Comments:

When we were looking to buy a catamaran, my primary concern was safety with an ability to sail well. Since owning R5 I have sailed down to the med and back for two summers. I would leave with a couple of crew, and my family would fly out once we got there. The most we had on her at one time was 6 of us, and it was comfortable and worked well.

Sailing in the UK, the covers are always on, we are warm and safe inside as all sailing can be done from the saloon. Once we had crossed Biscay and reached Spanish waters the covers come off and it’s like having a different boat. There are secure hatches down to the cabins, so security is never a concern and the covers don’t go on again until a similar position on the return journey. On the first journey home we encountered a F10 subtropical storm in Biscay...sub-tropical storm Stephanie. We had 6-7 m seas, with occasionally waves breaking over the top of the boat. All the covers were on and we were inside in normal clothes… safe and dry!

There is 360* view from the helm and I can leave and return to a mooring or a pontoon on my own. All lines lead to the cockpit, and the view of the boat and sails is great. Single / shorthanded sailing is very easy. 

Before we bought her, we chartered a boat of another brand for two weeks in Greece, with 7 of us. 4 cabins, 4 head, lots of room. A good boat to charter. But we motored a lot. On one sail we had 20kn on the beam and we were doing 7.5kn. In R5, we would be doing in excess of 12kn. I also wouldn’t want to be in a F10 in that boat!
