This Sailing cruiser's equipment


The Feeling 1040 was crafted by the Harle/Montain design office, and was manufactured from around 1985 to 1989. In many ways the Feelings of this era were trend-setters, with a fast body allied to a roomy and quite open inside, with beam ash joinery - something most other builders did not introduce until many years later. The vessel still looks modern today. These early Feeling yachts such as the 940, 1040, 1090 etc., were manufactured to quite a high condition level, though later the enterprise merged with Kelt Yachts, another French builder who specialised in lift keel yachts, and started to build a later diameter of lift-keel Feelings that were rather more 'manufactured down to a price'. In 2008 "Sailing Today" magazine tested the Feeling 1040 in Force 5-6 - actually sailing the precise vessel illustrated here - and reseaported that to windward "....this is a quick vessel" and "As soon as we eased the sheets the Feeling 1040 took off. Even with full sail up she remained easy to control and responsive". Their verdict was " enough to satisfy the racer while simple and locker enough for a family".
