Pros: Construction, handling, speed, sea kindly.
Cons: Narrow beam, small cockpit

Yankee 30 MKI. Designed by Sparkman and Stephens for the Offshore Midget Racing Class. Small cockpit makes her great for off shore work and easy to single hand. Tight for a more than three people in heavy conditions though, especially with a tiller. Narrow beam makes her very sea kindly, but also creates a small salon (by today's standards). She locks in 30 degrees off the wind. Stout boat; oversize chain plates, rigging, keel bolts. Keel stepped mast. Motor mounted amidships, great location! Good mechanical access and no "hobby horsing". It does make her handle a little strangely under power though (right hand prop that won't back to Port). She's a breeze to single hand. A sweet boat thats built to sail.
