Sly 47 is a dynamic Fast Cruiser, easy to manoeuvre either as sailboat or motorboat, comfortable and highly liveable as a cruiser given her excellent interior spacing and extensive areas free from encumbrance on the deck.
She sails at fast, easy cruise speeds in the medium-long range and offers interesting and satisfying results in IRC and Open regattas.
Sly 47 is a yacht for cruising, but so fast to be loved by people who never forget pure sailing, who don’t tolerate long navigation with engine power, who can’t stand sailing a boat that can’t give real sensations. It’s a game of balance between a racer and a yacht with a reduced crew, between quickness and passion for the trip.
