Wauquiez Pretorien

We are nearing the final stages in our search & purchase of our first large boat. There are 4 boat models we are considering - three with which we have some familiarity from charter or friends. The fourth, and maybe our ''gut'' favorite, is an early 1980s Wauquiez Pretorien 35.

Our close inspection suggests it''s a well built boat and the one we are considering appears well maintained. I wonder about the design - ends seem a bit pinched.

If we get to that point, we will sea trial. But that''s just a snapshot on a given day & conditions.

How do these boats sail?

We would surely benefit from any opinions people care to provide.
