Pros:
Cons:

A thorough sea-going yacht. Built in three keel versions, the earlier shorter keels suffered from weather helm. Can tend to pitch in a short sea. Originally powered with a 10hp engine that was not really up to the job. Rigged as either a yawl or a mast-head sloop.

Pros:
Cons:

The yacht is designed and built in a very strong, professional way. Every construction detail is strong and heavy. The handling is very good both under sail and motor. The yacht is relatively heavy, safe, not fast(waterline length is relatively short). Sailing is fun with the two mast yawl rigging, which includes a mizzen staysail. I sail the ship with my wife and three children on the Dutch inshore waters (Loosdrecht, IJsselmeer). Beautiful combination of modern and traditional.
I know of the english yacht Drippin Lizzy sailing around the world in 7 years without complaints. More info on:

Pros: Beautiful sailing boat, versatile rig, shallow keel
Cons: Short berths, slightly underpowered

I loved this boat.
I have had 8 boats and this one was far and away my favorite.
She sailed beautifully, pointed high, and had little to no weather helm.
I had a yawl rig with a cut-a-way 3/4 keel with a seperate spade rudder.
She came with a SABB, not SAAB, marine diesel manufactured in Norway, not Sweeden. It was the only diesel engine that I could easily, and regularly, hand-start. The manual stated that it burned half, 1/2, a pint a hour and I believe it. I had a 12 gallon tank and never feared a shortage.
I sailed her in San Francisco, which is very blustery and very choppy. She was a real champ. I'd buy another tomorrow.

Pros: easy sailing, comfortable ride, great ergonomics, handsome little boat
Cons: as mentioned, weather helm and marginal sabb power
