Supporting kids sailing

Updated: Dec 7, 2023

America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race sailor Richard Meacham wanted a boat large enough to support their son’s dinghy sailing but also a boat that was versatile enough to suit the whole family with other water activities. It was especially important to have a boat their children could manage safely themselves. I have had the privilege of enjoying several Salthouse boats over the years. We have owned the Salthouse Coach Boat since 2022. As a family, we had a broad list of requirements, be it towing behind a launch up and down the East Coast of New Zealand, water sports as a family, supporting dinghy sailing around the country, all in a reliable and comfortable boat. The quality of the build, the robustness of the design and the effectiveness of the systems have allowed us to use and share the boat with absolute confidence. I couldn't recommend the boat and the people behind it with more confidence.”
