We've had ours for a year. This model was built from 1980-1982, and I've been told by some that they were overbuilt somewhat. I don't know how true it is, but it does seem pretty solid. It's got a hull speed of 7.3 I believe, and seems pretty quick to me. Everything is lead aft, so could be singlehanded. I prefer another person myself, but that's just me.

It has a Yanmar 3GMD diesel, with a whopping 20 HP. I doubt you'd want less, I'd definitely consider going with a 30 HP in the future if the need to rebuild or replace arises.

I might add that the deck is cored, so check it out especially around the chainplates. I have a small area that will need to be repaired on mine.

Overall, I'd recommend it for what you are considering. We plan on doing the caribbean in the near future on ours.
