Pros:
Cons:

I've owened/lived aboard for 3 years. Redesigned the galley and engine cover Mahogony interior gives a warm ship feel. 1000 lbs of lead shot were previously added as extra ballast for stability. Magor construction seems good but some corners seemed to be cut to save costs (hatches etc.) Teak exterior toe rails and cockpit sides (when maintained) add to the great lines of this design. The hull as well as deck and cabin moulds are the same as the Iona 32. I assume that the designer is Robert Perry because I understand he is recognised as the Iona designer and they have the same design, but the MK II series seems to be penned by Robert Finch. Its difficult to know because not much info is around on this boat and while Ive met several Ionas Ive never seen another MK II. Over all it is a great boat that sails well to weather and with the added ballast balances very well. If anyone has info or experience with this boat please contact me.
