rlevy is on a distinguished road
I have a 1986 Pretorien and have been pleased overall. I upgraded from a Sabre 34, which I do not believe was as well built. (The Sabre leaked from the toe rail and the keel required rebedding after only a few years.) The Pretorien is much more comfortable in a seaway. We sail between Maryland and Maine, sometimes 50 miles offshore. Be sure to check the the propeller strut, if the boat you are considering has a shaft rather than a saildrive. The strut can come lose and cause misalignment and other problems.
