    We understand that she is running well under power. Can somebody find an adequate picture of her sailing seriously?

    I said: "Seriously". In the same wind that she's motoring 22 knots on the first picture.

    MitSeaAh's Performance Under sail

    Hi Teenna. I surely might have predicted this lack of sailing capability. I wrote on another thread posting about this vessel, "As I look back over this posting I almost feel the need to apologize for the negative overtones I’ve conveyed on MITseaAH. On the contrary, I really appreciate the efforts of her creators to solve the problems and produce a very unique new yacht. I can only hope the next time they are presented such a challenge, that they give some consideration to the catamaran vessel form."

    i gotta agree with Kevin, if there's wind, and you got a mast and sails then USE THEM.

    I can see the point of motoring a fast M/S. The yacht is mainly used as a Motoryacht, getting from A to B at speed, The owner previously had M/Ys and is used to the way they operate. On the other hand there are times when he justs wants to go nowhere in particular, perhaps getting some sun, with quests, a few drinks, unspoilt by the sound of diesels, sails billowing in the freshening breeze, no speed demon, but comfortable.

    LOL. I never really thought about it, but that is true. Kinda makes since to have the emergency backup just in case though.
