Taiwan boats, any good?

I also have investigated these type of boats. My impression of them (formosa 51; Hudson 50; CT;Hardin 50 etc) is they are "houseboats with sails". If you want to mainly live aboard and occasionally move around, they will fill the bill. If you are interested in crusing, then they are SLOW, hard to handle and may be in need of major repairs.
