Motor sailer

Try looking at the Nordhavn 56 motor sailor.

IMHO - That is one motor sailor that is really done right.

I had an opportunity to go out on one & it really is a good combo of both.

Uses a controllable pitch propeller that works to really make this a good combo. Electric winches. Has it all.

Take a look. There are some good u-tube videos that can show you how it works together -- the key is the variable pitch control of the prop.

Motor is still running & sails are sailing.

Good Luck.

Alfa Mike

Darren, I like your style.

Frequently operate with only one pilothouse door open, or even just the upper half of the Dutch doors, or even all shut in.

Suppose the NH56 motor sailer is a good boat to look at when you can compare the price of the NH56 vs another trawler of the same size, even a NH55.

Looking at a listing for a 2010 NH56 on yachtworld, the boat is listed at around £1.1mil. A listing for a 2008 NH55 is £1.03mil. When you are talking expensive boats, that price difference is not too much.

On the NH56, are there buttons to control the winches inside the pilothouse?
