Pros:
Cons:

Good design and layout for 6 to 8 people chartering with 3 cabins and heads/showers with additional outside shower. Surprising quick and stiff under sail. Good power/prop combination for motoring. Enough electrical power when running diesel for a hair dryer! Salon adaquate for 8, great for 6. Twin wheels provide good cockpit space dispite center cooler. Convenient above deck layout, rigging, lines, etc. No obvious weaknesses. Overall, high satisfaction.

Pros:
Cons:

I am entering my fourth season with this boat and I love it. I purchased it new and have had very few problems with the boat. THe quality is excellent from construction, running rigging, interior material and finish, etc. It is a three cabin model that offers an excellent owners cabin forward that is very spacious with two comfortable queen berths aft. THe nav station is the best I have ever seen and is functional at all points of sail. THe euro style port galley is better at anchor vs. under sail but for our crusing program it is perfect. THe open feeling in the saloon is unlike any boat I have been in her size. We have entertained 10 people confortably.

Under sail the boat is very solid and easy to steer, the speed and windward point is comprimised some by the extra weight and design of the shoal draft but with shallow Great Lakes, we are in anchorages that keep many of our friends in their home port. THe sails included (both roller furl) are good but designed more for reaching than going to weather. I would perfer a little flatter headsail that would allow a higher point. THe 135 gennoa is a little small below 10 knots but you can carry it in 25 and do 8.0+. The addition of a crusing spin was a good choice, as were elictric primary winches, teak cockpit table, heat pump and genset (Mase 2.2kw should have gone with the 3.2 that would run everything at once)

ONly issues has been the leaching of yellow mold release on the deck (supposedly fixed now) that is very difficult to get off and the failure of the alternator (Yanmar replaced under warranty)

Hope this helps.
