Just bought the Lady Lothlorien two weeks ago. Beautiful boat with roller furling jib and Yanmar 20hp auxilary. Being new to sailing I have nothing to compare her to, but under power handles like a compact car. Had her for our first sail (short 20 minute sail) and easily achieved 6.5 knots. Sailing on Lake Huron, if you see her, say hello!

Cons:

The Hughes 31 has the appearance that many people would have expected of modern sailing yachts from the late 1970s, and it offers a lot of boat for the price it usually commands on the used market. This Sparkman and Stephens designed boat has nice looking lines, and below decks, it has a well laid out interior. Unfortunately, the reputation of this boat may have been be marred a little by the fact that it was, at one time, widely marketed as a "kit boat" for amateur completion, while, at other times, the factory finished boats suffered uneven production quality. Some of these boats were also fitted with inexpensive components such as the 15 hp inboard OMC Saildrive gasoline engine (a detuned 30 hp outboard motor). Nevertheless, the Hughes 31 is fundamentally a good design and can represent excellent value if it is in good shape and reasonably well equipped.
