The YACHT has invited three current ships with a deck saloon of twelve meters hull length to Neustadt on the Baltic Sea for a comparison. Two ships from Germany, the Moody DS 41 and the Sirius 40 DS, as well as a yacht from Denmark, the Nordship 380 DS, faced the challenge. In the first part of the 18/2020 issue of YACHT, we highlighted the very different approaches of the manufacturers to the deck saloon theme and compared the interior fittings. It turned out that not all deck saloons are the same.
In the second part, the three test boats now have to prove what they can do under sail. In addition on the comparative test bench: the layouts on deck, the functionality of the handling as well as the equipment and the details on deck. And last but not least, we took a closer look at the price lists.
