Pros:
Cons:

Have owned boat since 1990. Shoal Draft, heavily built cruiser. Ideal for couple. Cutter rig easily handled. Can stay out when others come in with sails furled. Would have no hesitation about buying another Bayfield. Am professional marine surveyor.

Pros:
Cons:

We have sailed the boat extensively. Mostly on the Chesapeake. This boat is very comfortable. It is not a party boat in that the cockpit does not lend itself to a bunch of loungers especially whe tacking. The cutter rig is very versitale and easily managed. We have been out in some high winds, 60mph+ and never felt insecure. The only real draw back is the need to pack up every day to have full use of the main cabin. We replaced the Origanial Alcohol stove with an ORIGO and that was much better. Had blister problems but the boat stayed in the water year around. Wished it was fresh water cooled instead of raw water though.

Pros:
Cons:

Purchased boat in 1999. Added CDI FF4 and FF6 furling on both head sails. Very pleased with all aspects of the Bayfield. Very comfortable for cruising. Boat has orginal Yanmar YSM12. Quite noisy but dependable, since it is one cylinder.

Pros:
Cons:

Bought 1997; had been severely abused; Repowered very successfully with Perkins M20. As we worked on her she began to live up to the Gozzard pedigree again. This is a serious coastal/marginal weather cruising boat for a couple and highly recommended for those who appreciate seakindliness more than jarring, rib-bruising speed.

Pros: Full keel, cutter rig. Tough go anywhere boat
Cons: Too much wood to take care of. The center line salon table is a pain in the butt.

Good boat, we sailed ours all over the Gulf and in the Galvveston to Vera Cruz Regatia de Amigos. When we sold her, the fellow that bought her outfitted her and headed out on a world circumnavigation.
