The ketch, a sailboat with multiple advantages
The advantages of a ketch
Ketches have many benefits:
- better stability in heavy weather;
- easier to use;
- a split sail plan: the sails are smaller and therefore easier to handle;
- ideal for sailing on the high seas;
- and some people like them for their elegance.
Ketches are sometimes preferred to sloops because of the split sails which allow for easier handling. Also, over long distances, the extra sail area on a ketch (as compared to a sloop) makes the boat more balanced and easier to handle because it is smaller.
The sturdiness of the Evasion 32 from the Vendée-based manufacturer Bénéteau has made it internationally famous and it behaves very well under sail, another factor that makes it popular with sailing enthusiasts. The Endurance 35 Ketch from the Belliure shipyard has demonstrated time and time again that it sails well and the owners of this boat find it very safe. Amel's Sharki is capable of tackling any ocean and will reassure nervous sailors with its quality.
