Yes, they are a well-built boat with good reputation. But with it's full keel, it will not maneuvre as easily (especially for a beginning sailor, if that applies to you) as a fin keel boat. While more stable in heavy winds than some boats, it will not win races. So I think it's important to think about how you plan to use the boat, to determine if it's the right kind of boat for you, regardless of how lovely they look and their solid reputation.
