Only the keel does not make my style. But the design looks sharp. How many years has that design?
I mostly ignore this thread - but this one got me.
For a cruising boat - and let's be honest that's what these steel boats are - the longer, fuller hull is more optimal I would think.
I'd rather a boat that tended to keep her head where I put here than one that turned on a dime.
