Pros:
Cons:

This vessel is 31' LOA , 26' LOD, 11'10" beam. The boat has a 5' solid teak bow sprite and a large outboard hung rudder.
Please do not confuse this boat with the other Bombay model
(clipper) which is also 31' but has no bow sprite. My particular boat is very well built, making for a fine coastal cruiser. Propulsion is a 8hp Yanmar Diesel, which is a little under powered, steering is via tiller and sail plan
is cutter rig with the staysail on a club footed boom. At some point in its life the mast on this boat was stepped just forward of the cabin roof, but was then latter moved aft about 2' , on top of the cabin roof. The change in mast
location has caused this vessel to have a heavy weather helm. The vessel has a full keel with the ballast contained within.
