An excellent pocket cruiser which sails very well with the optional bowsprit.
Very competant in a blow and a very pretty boat to look at. Gelcoat is in superb condition after two decades and no blistering problems.
Watch for worn gudgeons and pintles on the rudder and the oak rudder cheeks tend to rot if neglected. Yanmar inboard is noisy without extra sound insulation, but otherwise provides adequate reliable power.
If the lack of standing headroom doesn't bother you, this is a well built heavy displacement cruiser that sails well.
We have been very happy with her indeed and if I didn't spend all my time racing sloops with kevlar racing sails and doing regattas I would buy another one, or a sistership like the Orion 27.
