Pros:
Cons:

Santana 525 is a wide bodied racer/cruiser by W.D. Shock.
Fractional rig, single spreader.4.5' draft. Strong boat
in heavy air....hard to sail to rating in light air. Some
structutal problems with bulkheads but that is easily fixed.
Owned bot for 12 years...been competitive and am satisfied.

Pros:
Cons:


The 525 is a great PHRF contender. The 18ft waterline allows for great light air performance. Designed to the IOR rules of the 70's the 525 still is competitive today. For more information refer to the 525 home page located at:
www.angelfire.com/tn/santana525
The 525 is designed for racing , but still has enough room below to overnight. With a Johnson 3.3 hp outboard the crusing speed is 5.2-5.5knots.

Pros:
Cons:

...if not spacious. I went from a Catalina 250 swing keel to the pocket rocket 4'keel Santana. Inside is like an upside down salad bowl. Lots of space. Spent 30 hours in overnight MdR to San Diego with four guys, partied at SW Yacht Club for three days, then Two Harbours on Catalina for 4 days with two guys. Plenty of room for race gear and camping gear.
Racing now in PHRF in desert puddle. Loves the light winds agains J24s and Merits. mail list server on Trailersailor

Pros: very affordable training boat. great performance!
Cons: not enough were built

folks, if you can find one of these available, snatch it up. this is the most affordable trailer sailor out there. it is fast and responsive like a dinghy. inside there is plenty of room for the family. i lived aboard mine down in the corpus christi bay for 3 straight months. awesome first boat. many people never buy another boat, it is that nice!
