Pros:
Cons:

We've had "Second Wind" for the last 5 years. We keep her in Shelter Cove Marina, San Diego, CA. During these years we've sailed her to Catalina several times,Dana Point, Oceanside, San Clemente Island, the Coronado Islands and Ensenada. Despite some of the flack we've gotten from others confusing her with the motor/sail Lancer 30, we have found her to be quick (cruising 6.5-7 knots on a reach), comfortable, well ventilated, and dependable. The sail drive allows much more room inside than a conventional "v drive" would (5 of us once took her to Catalina for a week.. and were still speaking to one another at the end). On haul out last summer we only had two blisters (both smaller than golf balls). In my view they are ideal for off shore cruising in Southern California and at $18-22,000 a terrific bargain.

Pros:
Cons:

This boat has an extremely large interior with many of the extras. It has many of the extras and is very nice for one or two people to spend some time afloat.

The major drawback is that it doesn't sail worth a damn. Will not hold a course without constant attention to the helm. Has all the creature comforts below in the cabin but only the basic above deck.

No Boom vang, backstay adjuster, cunningham, etc. If you want a floating apartment it is fine but if you want a good sailing vessel, look elsewhere!

Just finishing my third season with Cynara. Seems to be solidly built, but the hatches and portlights leaked. Had to rebed both hatches and replace the cheap plastic portlights that were sieves. The sailing of the boat however is wonderful and responsive with a main and 150% genny on a roller furler. I plan to add a 100 or 110% and an asymetric spinnaker soon. The layout below is unusual to me, but I've learned to live with it for now. Overall a nice design.

We have owned Bold Venture for 5 years. Bought her in San Diego and cruise in the Sea of Cortez. We have added a number of upgrades, new instruments, hatches, new main sail etc. Great 1st boat for us. Handles well under weather and safe. We will be adding roller furling and some lazy jacks too.
