Pros:
Cons:

Coastal Cruiser w/ Fractional Rig. We liked the excellent headroom - 6'4". The 18 HP diesel provided adequate power. Below deck roller furler kept the foredeck very clean. The bulb wing keel was excellent and drew only 4.5'. Only 2 minor surface blisters on keel. Only problem we had was where the starboard stays entered the hull. The joint leaked and was unnoticeable until the bulk head was nearly rotted out. Had to put in a dutchman on the starboard bulkhead aft of the head. Overall, very satisfied with the boat construction and its sailing abilities, but definitely a coastal cruiser.

Pros:
Cons:

We have owned the boat for 4 years and are still as thrilled with her as the day we purchased. We sail on Lake Champlain NY, spending >75 days on board each season from end April to end Oct. The livability of the 33.5 is supurb. Aft cabin layout is great, the forward cabin works well for teenagers and weekend guests. Very usable galley and the split head/shower and sink arrangement although unusual is actually practical. The salon table seats 4 comfortably and the teak cabinetry is well finished. Standard features that can as original equiment all still functioning well. Added Bimini, upgraded the furler, CD player,cockpit cushions, cockpit table, GPS.
The 4.5 foot wing keel allows us entry to the shallowest of bays. Very tall (52') rig requires reefing early as she prefers to sail in the 10 to 20 max heel. Upwind performance more than acceptable, off wind is stellar and comfortable. The high deck makes for a dry sail. Stern swim platform and wet locker arrangement is practical.
Great family boat at an affordable price. The 1992 has the Yanmar 30GM engine which is larger than that used in the late 1980's boats.
