*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.
Thanks for the correction re the designer (brain fart...).. and I take your points of similarity.. nevertheless they are very different hull forms and in that way are not very 'similar' boats!
