I see there is a boat in the Sydney to Hobart "Salona" (Salona 37)
Interested to know how they perform. Has the boat competed in any races yet?
What would they be expected to be near around the cans? :unsure:

Davo, A vested interest? I heard rumours of a Hobart trip with Dazza and KenS. (Whatever happened to him?) From the website looks a little likle a Beneslow 40.7. All good though. Enjoy!

Looks like me, Dazza, Ken S + what I know is a few other very experienced sailors!
Numbers look not "quick" to me but on the nose depending on rating is where she'll like to go. :unsure:

Talked with these guys at the Annapolis Show, really nice boat, good people and the build quality looked to me a step above other production boats. On the Chesapeake the dealers boat rates 81 PHRF with a 135% HS. I am sure somebody across the pond would have the IRC rating as they are built over there with a bigger presence.

The 45 is a really sweet ride, fuck that would be sweet to bang around the Caribbean for the winter on one of those!!!

Looks like an X-Yacht knockoff- right down to the interior woodworking. Not that that's a bad thing.

I talked to the dealer at the show, and my fuzzy memory seems to recall that the dealers boat didn't have the deeper keel. But I easily could be wrong.

I seem to recall that as well… I know the 45 had the deep ass keel; 8.3’ shit that is fine for the Islands PR and south but would not want to be dragging that bitch around the Chesapeake or the Bahamas…


BTW that is one ugly camel toe; you can do better than that… :P

Never sailed on the solona or seen one. You should check this one Grand Soleil. I spent some time on the Grand Soleil at the que in Croatia and was very impressed with it. Rig looked powerful - cockpit was big and looked well setup the boat its self was actually a charterboat but fit right in on the main drag parked next to the glitzed out Itailian power boaters.

Very cool boat. If I ever see one on the SF bay I'll be looking to snag a ride.

there was a 37, (Slainte), in Spi west although I think she is rated with PBO rigging, carbon rig etc.
Saw her late last year and is a nice looking boat.
Great compromise interior for cruising and racing.
The same boat is on a dutch commodores cup team- and heard she will be less the PBO.

Should be a competitive IRC boat in production boat terms I would think.

i had a look at the boat on the boatshow in hamburg last year and the boat had some real nice berths in the salon.

going to sail on one in the baltic in the middle of april. saw the boat last year and it looked quite good with under-deck furler and nice sail shapes. looking forward to that, hope i don't forget to take pictures.

I found this thread while searching for a PHRF rating. I bought the Salona 37 that was in Oxford MD. Keel deprived but what is there is a good one. Fixed prop that is huge on the saildrive. Bottom paint was applied with a mop. The rig was not centered in the boat and mast head waaay off to port. Gave you one good tack. Now, a year later she is proper, outfitted and my wife loves it. Now that the selling the wife process is over we are getting a rating, new sails, sprayed VC17 and ready to go have some fun.

This going in the ocean? I'm no expert but thought VC17 was fresh water paint....Boat looks nice though!

Funny as I was going through some old paperwork this weekend and came across the Salona brochure from the show and then this old thread shows back up!

Like I said she looks like a really nice boat.

Any idea what happened to the 45?

What do you mean? Salona 45 was introduced about 10 years ago and now they have Salona 44: http://www.salonayac...models/s44.html

Stock Salona 44 did the Sydney Hobart this year. Finished 3rd in
class. Family crew. New boats are pretty nice looking.

The dealership in Oxford, MD USA had a Salona 37 and Salona 45. I could be wrong but I think they only had these two boats and never sold any others. The 37 is accounted for, just curious where the 45 went.

I am kinda kicking around the idea of doing the live aboard thing and the 45 looks like she might make a nice home??? Don't want too racy but also don't want floating condo...

I was told that the stock 45 was sold and shipped to Italy. It was sold 2 years ago or so. The 37 is a comfortable cruiser and reasonably quick. If we can get the PHRF into the mid 80's or so she should be fun. I am just now applying for a rating. The rating when the dealer did the Gov Cup was 82 I was told but I doubt that included the fixed prop credit (which is gone). The 5'9" draft is not my choice but it works OK.
