22 ft Loa 20 ft Lwl, Kevlar hull with no core, v berth forward with two quarter berths aft. Boat is much like an Ultimate 20 but heavier, Lift keel for trailering with resultant trunk amidsips below cutting the cabin in two this is a racer with few amenities.
Keel is steel with lead bulb and weighs 800 Lbs while all up weight is approx 1700lbs. The rig is very tall 34 ft and frational 5/8ths. Swept back spreaders.
very quick to accelerate to hull speed and probably slightly exceeds thisdownwind when planing. former owner says he got 13 knt on the speedo but i havent reached this yet! ( says he as out in a big blow.) My fastest: Gps reading was 7 knots on a broad reach surfing without a spinnaker.
The hull entry is fine with a fairly flat bottom great for light chop but pounds upwind.
One needs at least three or more on the rail in heavy weather as she is tender.
All in all a great light and fast daysailor with room below to thaw out ( I sail on Lake superior)and have a thermos of coffee. very trailerable boat is now overwintering in my backyard( less fees)
The boat was made in GBR and only references to it I have found net included were in Practical Boat Owner No.382 Oct. 1998.
