All cruising sailboat manufacturers are on NauticExpo.
Yachts and Yachting invites you to visit NauticExpo, the online exhibition entirely dedicated to sailing. On NauticExpo, you will unearth a whole website committed to cruising sailboats, open transom sailboats and carbon sailboats.
Cruiser racer sailboat
Cruiser racer sailboats are made for both cruising and racing. They have comfortable internal arrangements, but a hull designed for speed in regattas or fast cruises. These boats are the most common worldwide. Additionally, this type of boat keeps its value on the second-hand market because of its double sailing program possibilities.
Ocean cruising sailboat
For offshore cruising, ocean cruising sailboats are ideal. They are comfortable and self-sufficient with enough water, electricity, and fuel autonomy to sail long periods of time in hot and cold places, without returning to harbour. They have also plenty of space for storage and for additional equipment, such as water-makers or generator sets.
Aluminium sailboats are the first choice for long-trip sailors because their aluminium hull and structure guarantee solidity, safety and longevity. They can carry heavier loads than composite hull boats, which is a major advantage for long cruises. Their highly resistant hull makes them the best for beaching (with a lifting keel) and for sailing in rough weather.
