I'm looking at buying a '79 Comar Comet 11 to use as a fast family cruiser. I'll be mailny based in the Med but I also intend to circumnavigate. The vital statistics of the boat look ok (37' loa, 6.23' draft, 11.81' beam) but I can't find anyone who has any hands on experience of these boats. I've heard that they are well made and that Comar were a respected yard (built by Comar in Italy designed by Finot in France) but I need some feedback as to their sea worthy/kindliness. Any takers??

Cheers,

Jon.

Hi Jon, I do got a Comet11 Plus! She is a VERY strong and fast Cruiser, with a lot of space under deck. Our Comet has a draft at 2 m ( normal is 1,65 m ) she is made to cross the bigger waters. We have sailed her in winds at 26meters pr sek she is doing wery well. when the wind gets over 15 ms we drop the mailsail and get along only with the genua. Not going to tight to the wind she easily get 8 - 11 knots. ( our record is 11.8 kn )

Hope this is helpfull
If You do got more questions You can mail me
Best regards
