Pros:
Cons:

With a 3 stateroom layout, Galley to port amidships, large saloon, and stand up engine room with work bench, the Transpac series offers an excellent value in the genre' of family blue water cruisers. The Master stateroom of the Mark II edition boasts a MONSTER berth and three "pirate" windows in the transom. We have had our vessel in numerous small craft, gale, and storm situations, and we were well pleased with her stability and the level of safety we felt. In fairness, she doesn't perform well to weather, but this is a reasonable trade off for the stability afforded.

During one gail, I was unable to reach the mainsheet in time to prevent a broach, the vessel righted herself in short order.

In the event you are considering an economical blue water boat, I think your investment in a Transpac, given proper maintenance, would be well placed.

WE WOULD LIKE TO AFFIRM MATTHEW NORWOOD'S COMMENTS PLUS HOW SOLID AND
SEAWORTHY SHE IS. WE WERE SPECIFICALLY
LOOKING FOR A THREE STATEROOM TWO HEAD
CRUISER WITH DECK STEPPED MAST SO AS TO EASILY TABERNACLE AS WE HAVE A LOW BRIDGE AT OUR HARBOR ENTRANCE. SHE SAILS
EQUALLY WELL AS A SLOOP OR KETCH SO WE SIMPLIFIED HER RIG TO A SLOOP WITH A MARINER JIB ROLLER FURLING.
