Welcome to the official website of The Mad Dogs!
Information about our sailing yacht Mad Dog Voyager
Mad Dog Voyager is a fast 40'/12M pilothouse style, blue water sailing yacht. Designed as a sloop and with over 740 sq. ft. of sail area we can easily cruise at a comfortable 7 kts in almost any wind direction!

For the times when the winds are too light, or going the wrong way, the 56 hp Yanmar diesel engine does a good job pushing us along.

We love the styling and design and while we mainly operate as a two-person crew, the Selden Furling gear makes it relatively manageable to sail Mad Dog Voyager single-handed. Our 40’ sailing yacht is quite spacious with a nice layout as well as being a pilothouse we can steer from outside in the cockpit at the helm or inside at the inside navigation/steering station when the weather is miserable;(
