Pros:
Cons:

The Mistress is a strong and stiff cruising boat capable
of weekending or longrange island hopping. Allied
concentrated on building a superior hull, giving the
interior less attention. My boat (hull #10) was decidedly
dreary below. What whe lacks in beauty, however, she more
than makes up for in seaworthyness and safety. If you want
a go anywhere, stout and safe boat, consider the Mistress.

Pros:
Cons:

Some say this is a slow boat, but from my experience on my new boat we did 3kts with 6kts of wind. This doesn't seem like a slow boat. We are living on our boat and we love it. We have had 4 people in the galley at the same time and it did not feel crowded

Pros: Great boat for the money!
Cons: Doesn't back...at all.

These boats like a breeze but like most oldies are best between a close and a broad reach. They don't point well or tack fast due to design parameters. Close hauled is a point cruisers avoid unless they like checking their stowing plan and dead down is like sailing with a drogue. If it is absolutely necessary to beat the mizzen doesn't do much but increase WX helm. We balance best with Headsail and Mizzen when winds go > 18kts. Off wind is best enhanced with a chute like most boats. For a liveaboard cruiser this is as solid a foundation as any. For the money these are tough to pass up. We liveaboard with two children 7&10. The boat has been continually upgraded and has most of the features found on new boats in the 300-400,000.USD range. Acceptable examples of these Mistresses can be found for 40-50,000. I'd say that is a great deal. Not to mention the pleasure sailing true "Classic Plastic". Shallow draft w molded in ballast means you can actually get close enough to shore to enjoy rowing or use something less than a 100# motor on the dinghy. Off shore the low aspect rig doesn't cause the shallow draft to be a huge problem. Motoring is old school, a little loud and vibrates enough to make the Admiral smile. Good RC around .80-.95 GPH around 500 milke range on internal fuel. SL555 will give a you a good workout but most of us need it. We really love this old boat though and wouldn't trade her for any mortgage out there. Regards, Red
