Pros: roomy, huge, well behaved
Cons: not so good to weather but for beam to down wind - great

Love it, hate it! Has a life of its own!

Big, heavy, roomy 3 berth model. 50,000+ lbs. 5'-6" draft, 15'-2" beam. Hard to find berths wide enough when the fenders are out. 52 feet OA from bowsprit to swim platform. 56 OA with the dinghy hanging from the davits.

Lots of wood to care for even though hull is FG. Bullet proof Ford Lehman 120HP engine. 450 Gals of Diesel and 450 Gals of water. Think about how much weight the liquids add up to.

I love its handeling under power. Easy to back and fill and dock. Need to learn more about sail handeling, new to mizzen mast and sail.

450 sq ft of living area not counting walk around engine room and bilge storage areas.

Two of us handle it most times. I have single handed it under power without problems. Haven't had it in over 25 knot winds yet but expect it to behave well under reefed or bare pole sailing.

If you are looking for a retirement home, I highly recommend the Island Trader 46 Ketch.
