Minimum crew requirements I do have to agree on Iluvyachts post. It is not a hard figure. It depends on the type of boat, the ability (seamanship) and idividual strength (both physical and mental) of the crew (couple) and the type of journey. The same boat taken for meandering around in the Med might be far to much in the Roaring Forties. Back to the OPs question, the Mochi 75 Long Range is not a real 75 ft boat as far as volume, weight (both for the momentum and the sail area of hull and superstructure) and underwater body is concerned. In reality it is a 60 ft boat and can be handled easily by a crew of two or a family crew. If you look at the hull with its distinctive tunnel design in the aft part, you will see, that the stern platform is a necessary part of the hull, because the tunnel length is needed for the hull efficiency. But the aft part of the hull does not contribute very much to the overall buoyancy of the hull. Thats why they had to hide it under a bathing platform, it could not carry more hull. The boat needs to be perfectly trimmed in pitch, to be efficient. And by personal experience, I can tell you, the boat does not like to maneuver without a stern thruster, when going backwards. Med mooring was not easy . And the Roaring Forties would not be my favorite area of operation with an 75LR, whereas on a Nordhavn 60+, I would be much more confident rounding the Cape. Sorry for the first picture. I could not resist, I am a sailor .
