Pros:
Cons:



In mast roller furling, all lines lead aft, full head and galley, 90 gallons fresh water, bulb keel. Just a little small in most dimensions and very tender. Very satisfied with the quality and performance as well as comfort.
Sail out of Seward, Alaska

Pros: Roomy For 31 Footer, Generally Well Built, Bilges are Dusty, Wheel Steering
Cons: Swim ladder protrudes at stern, Bow Roller Short and Lightweight, Isopthalic Resin Construction, Iron Keel, Fair Icebox Insulation

A 31' Groupe Finot design converted from the First 310 racing hull into a more cruise oriented boat with in-mast roller furling, 90 gals water (claimed), wheel steering, and more storage. Better than average construction and very roomy below given length with 6'+ headroom. A fast hull, but perhaps slightly under rigged in light air, somewhat tender but sails well to weather in moderate air, slower off wind w/o downwind gear. Decent quality hardware except Z-Spar (US Spars) Mast, lines led to the cockpit, very well laid out on deck and below. In-mast furling very convenient, but can be balky if not maintained and likes a practiced hand. Easy access via walk through transom. 18 HP Volvo Penta auxiliary is noisy but reliable (except the sea water pump seals) even if parts can be hard to find locally. We use about 2/3 gal. diesel/hour at 2900 RPM reaching almost 7 knots. Cushions in saloon and berths don't offer much support and icebox is a little small for extended cruises. Aft berth is roomy for adults, V-berth a little cramped for adults. No dedicated automatic bilge pump. Anchor locker is a decent size for two Danforth/Fortress style anchors, but the bow roller is lightweight and not really designed for anchor storage though I suspect it can be made to work. Battery box is limited to 2 group 24 batteries, 160 AH total. Overall, an outstanding value in a coastal cruiser with a supportive manufacturer and excellent resale.
