Pros:
Cons:

Designed by Maclear and Harris as a little sister to the famed Finesterre. Early boats had bronze centerboard, stem head fitting and ports. These were later changed to aluminum. Late in the production run the Citation model was introduced which offered an extended house trunk and larger cabin at the expense of the lazzarette. Highly regarded for good looks and superior sailing qualities. About one third of the boats were built as yawls to take advantage of CCA rating rules. Rare to the market, they command prices between 25-40K

Pros: quick, nimble, seaworthy, strong
Cons: Not a Bermuda 40...

An absolute classic; a fiberglass Finisterre. Designed by MacLear & Harris who worked under Olin Stephens with Francis Kinney and Al Mason on the original Finisterre.

Because of fiberglass construction rather than wood (as was the original Finisterre), the interior volume of Finisterre is not lost in the shorter waterline Seabreeze.

Fast, seakindly and comfortable inside, she's the ideal cruising boat of her size. Her bulletproof hull performs as may be expected of a sister to Finisterre. After the first few boats, MacLear & Harris specified an additional 1,000 pounds of ballast (in lead pigs). At typical cruising weight, her Capsize Ratio is 1.62 and her Motion Comfort Index is 40.7. The bronze centerboard boats are preferable to the later aluminum centerboard version, which may have corrosion problems.
