MOTORSAILERS FOR SALE

Motorsailers are a hybrid vessel that have a sail plan but also a larger than sailboat-standard engine.

This particular hull form has its detractors who believe that neither propulsion method, engine or sail, has the efficiency of a comparably sized boat, either exclusively sail or power. The sails are smaller than a comparable sail boat, and the engines have less horsepower.

Supporters of the motorsailer say they offer the ultimate in redunducies when on a long-distance cruise. The vessels offer improved fuel efficiency thanks to ability to sail but on calm days or if there’s a need to outrun a storm, an owner can power up the engines. The hull form operates at its peak when there’s a stiff breeze and the engines are powered up.

The hybrid motorsailer satisfies many of needs of sailboaters and powerboaters in one package.
