Pros: Very roomy, fast, big boat feel, inboard diesel, nice interior
Cons: soft vinyle water tank, no pressure water, cream color deck

This is an excellent entry boat with a roomy aft cabin, sleeps 4 comfortably. Nice hull speed and points well into the wind. Cockpit is very comfortable on reach and upwind thanks to high coamings. Yanmar diesel is a purr, easily reached from 3 sides. Stove could be better, no refrig, no hot or pressure water. Goes faster than many 30 footers. Check for all lines lead aft option, some requires halyards at mast, no very practical in 10 foot swells. Would recommend it over Jeanneau Fantasia since Hull seems to have more endurance to blisters than most.
