FPB 78-2 Video: Come Aboard Grey Wolf II For Sea Trials

greywolf2_seatrials

We’ve just received some video of FPB 78-2 running through her paces during sea trials down in New Zealand. The owners and Circa team members aboard were lucky enough to find some light weather to enjoy: 35-45 knots of breeze and 16-18 ft (5-5.5m) waves on the bow…

Enjoy the ride, and stay tuned for lots more. *Special thanks to FPB owner Pete Rossin for narrating the footage.

    I just LOVE these videos of the boats in actual use. Not just the rough weather ones (tho they are fun). The simple “everyday life” video doing mundane things like washing dishes while plugging along on the way to some exotic destination. Every yacht maker out there has the standard splashing around at anchor off some tropical island video’s but very few show the more realistic day to day “this is what life as a live aboard is like” video’s. These are ten times more interesting (at least to me) and are much better at getting people excited and wanting to buy a boat. More please =)

    We keep trying, Gene:
    Keep your fingers crossed. We are headed N on Saturday and might get “lucky” with the conditions.

    Hi Steve: Impressive ride into the waves. I wonder about the purpose of the lengthened forward mast and the yellow rectangles around the hatches of the fore deck?

    Hello Carl:
    The taller forard mast is the result of MCA code 0 height requirements for the steaming light.
