The Sanya was built to take a crowd sailing, and measured by that design brief, Olivier Racoupeau of Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design hit the target square on. With accommodations for five couples (and three crew if desired), the French-built cat has room to spare; in fact, more living space than the Eleuthera 60, which it replaces in F.P.’s Flagship Class of cruising catamarans. And on the sailing side of the equation, a powerful, flat-topped, full-batten equipment room buried in the nacelle. Once inside, the skipper has clear access to the various switches and 12- and 24-volt circuits that power the Sanya’s systems. But without removing the screwed-down nav station seat, BOTY judge Ed Sherman found he turned into a contortionist of sorts as he wormed his way in, a feat that would have been all the more difficult in any kind of seaway.
