Pros:
Cons:

Comfortable aft cockpit cruiser racer with centerboard shoal
draft, single head with shower stall, v-berth, aft cabin,
propane stove, outboard facing nav station. 30'3" waterline,
12'5" beam, 4'8" draft (8'9" board down), 17500 lb displ.,
7500 lb external lead keel, 742 sq ft sail area, 35 hp Yanmar,
30 gal fuel, 106 gal water, 25 gal holding tank. Easy sailer
with tall double spreader rig that likes to be reefed early.
Great for cruising and can be PHRF raced. Similar to Tartan
3800 or Sabre 38 in layout and creature comforts but beefier.

Pros:
Cons:

Vessel is well built. High quality construction and materials. Easily single handed with an enormous cockpit. Skegged rudder arrangement of keel makes for little wheel attention and little work for the autopilot.Boat is well balanced and often sails itself. Low windage allows for little problems at anchor in a breeze or gale. Westebeke 4-108 has plenty of extra push when required. This is one of the finest sloops I have sailed.

Pros: well built , sail itself, fast
Cons: ceter board has to be deployed regularly to prevent growth fouling

William H. Shaw design , P-108 diesel , huge cockpit, wheel under dodger for protection , very beefy standing rigging, sweet lines, rarely broaches if ever, sleeps five comfortably without sliding out two berths to doubles. very forgiving and quick . This is the finest sloop I have ever sailed.
