48V Wiring Installation

This time on Distant Shores we do a deep dive into the 48V wiring system - check out the installation … and see why we think it's worth moving up from a traditional 12 Volt system.


Ask Us Anything

This time on Distant Shores we answer your questions about our new custom aluminum Enksail Orion 49 sailboat while visiting the shipyard in the Netherlands. Questions such as "When is the expected launch date?" to "Is there insulation?" to "Why is the cabinetry being built out of the hull?" are addressed and more...


Med Mooring Technique

While the build of our new Enksail Orion 49 sailboat progresses in the Netherlands, we make a 12-day voyage through the Greek Islands aboard a Jeanneau 54 monohull, enjoying some fast sailing in strong meltemi winds! Aboard are 6 guest crew members new to the techniques of Mediterranean mooring, going stern to the shore and rafting up with another sailboat. We go through all three of these techniques en route, sometimes in challenging conditions. The video includes helpful animations and illustrations as well as visits to remote islands and ancient Greek ruins.
