They share a reputation for being among the most seaworthy vessels of their length and weight while remaining pleasant to sail.

*shrug* Among 20-21 footers, find me a boat closer to the much-vaunted attributes of a Contessa 32. Not the Flicka; not the Mini 6.5.

BTW, The Wilderness 21 was designed by Chuck Burns and later sold as the Burns 21.

Also BTW: Capt Fred -- Do you own (and are trying to sell) a Rob Roy 23 named Fiddlestix? A truly pretty craft. But if so, it's good form to disclose to us gentle readers you have a vested interest in recommending we buy one.
