I'm currently considering buying a 1991 Amel Santorin sloop after
having looked for Maramu/Santorins for some time. Now, I'm wondering
about the sloop rig - is it just a ketch without the mizzen mast or is
the sloop ring taller or with a larger mainsail?
Does anyone have experiences with the sloop rig? Is it as effecient as
the ketch or better? Does the sloop-Santorin have the same balance in
Or is it a handicapped ketch for people that do not want to fiddle
with a mizzen sail?
Any experiences, points of view or actual facts about the sloop rig
will be greatly appreciated.
