Mast & Rigging

The sailing philosophy on Moana is to easily manage her from the cockpit. Rigging is thus set up as straight forward as possible and all manoeuvres can be carried out by one person. All halyards, reefing lines, sheets etc are led back to the cockpit. Everything is managed from the cockpit, no winches on the mast.

MOANA has been designed to rely on renewable energy (wind for propulsion, solar for electrical power) as much as possible, and as such she boasts an above-average 1800 watts of solar panels, mounted above the davits and on the bimini. In our experience this suffices to satisfy the energy demands (lights, batteries, water maker and occasional laundry) when at anchor or mooring. We really appreciate this solution as it is simple and tranquility is not disturbed by either genset or wind generator. The electric system is 24 V based.
