+ Offshore Cruising Records

  • Despite the fact this is a full-on cruiser, the numbers coming up on the readouts were still more than reasonable during our outgoing on Sydney Harbour. The 485 clocked eight knots in 14 knots true on a beam reach and five knots in nine knots true close-hauled, achieving close to 35-38º despite the light conditions.
