I like more the other Polish boat, the Delphia 28 that has also a comfortable interior (even if not so BIG as the one from the Tes) and has certainly a better sailing performance. I find this one a more well proportioned and balanced boat.
Personally I would prefer the First 27.7, a very interesting boat designed by the "Master", Mr. Finot
I sorta misspoke on the "East coast" part of that, what I was thinking was for moving in and out of shallow protected waters, rivers, etc and being able to use the ditch. Not for going off shore. Inland exploring.
That Delphia is very nice! But I agree on the First. The 27-31 versions are always at the top of our list of choices. We are considering a major increase to our budget to be able to get a used one as our "First" boat. Sorry, couldn't help the pun.
