All control lines are led aft to the cockpit and (staysail apart) all sails can be safely managed by the electric winches. The boat is equipped with daggerboards, which, due to the boats underwater profile are rarely used. Most commonly used on the windward side in a big beam sea as a stabliser. She really does sail well to windward and can out perform may modern monohulls.

My wife and I have found her a delight to handle on our own and have never said that we need help. The Leisure Furl main does take some getting used to, but we find that considering that it is a fully battened sail, with a 19' foot and 60' luff is simplicity itself if you follow the manufacturers recommendations.We have frequently enjoyed 14 + kts. of nearly dead level sailing, despite her rather heavy weight configuration. All in all, she is like having a fast moving, comfortable, luxury home to bring along on your travels
