Sailed on one that had, at some point, been to Mexico and back to the PNW. Found it to be a solid feeling boat, no rocketship but seemed comfortable in a reasonable breeze.
Good headroom and reasonable accommodation though as I recall the galley was a bit minimal (at least on that one) They probably go for a relatively low price for that size of boat.
And, of course, Survey, survey, survey......
