    Meet Distant Shores
    We are currently building the new Enksail Orion 49 with hybrid propulsion for Paul and Sheryl Shard of Distant Shores. This Canadian couple is known for their sailing videos on television and YouTube. They have visited many countries and sailed many seas. They share their experiences and videos about sailing and specific topics with followers from all over the world. And this also goes for the Enksail Orion 49. Paul and Sheryl share their experiences and tell what it is like to have a custom-made sailing yacht built at Gebroeders van Enkhuizen. The videos can be viewed here:

    Paul and Sheryl will be present to tell you about their new sailing yacht during the Enksail Orion Experience. There will also be two sessions where we will talk to Paul and Sheryl about their best sailing stories, the do’s and dont’s when building a new yacht, hybrid propulsion and other technology and any questions from the audience. The sessions will take place at 11am and 2pm.

    About the Enksail Orion
    Safety combined with sailing performance and comfort is what the Enksail Orion stands for. This aluminium sailing yacht is characterised by its spacious pilothouse, making it pleasant to spend time on deck. Its variable draught makes it suitable for shallow waters as well as sea.
