Very impressive boat with a really nice interior. It is a very good knock-off, but some caution might be prudent with this and other earlier taiwanese yards. I looked at one to purchase and my first big question right off the bat was why the side stays entered the boat through the center of the toe rail. could not find the chainplates anywhere inside the boat and wondered if they were glassed inside the hull? Never got to the survey, but chainplates on an older boat are very important items. like peterson 44's, take a close look at - tank quality, engine make, headsail chainplate, tack support for the staysail, weather helm and all the stuff that is hidden. best bet is to ask as many owners as you can find about the boat. i know of one in oxnard and another in san carlos. they both have good things to say about this boat. enjoy.
