Ambergris is on a distinguished road
Chris, I have a Bristol 24, unfortunately I can't exactly tell about its sailing characteristics since I'm in the process of refurbishing it in preparation to sail, have not actually sailed it yet. In general I expect it to behave as a comfortable cruiser rather than racy, which is what I want. I think it would be perfect for a couple with a small child. It is heavy-ish for 24 ft, almost 6,000 lbs disp. A back issue of Good Old Boat magazine, March-April '03 has a nice Bristol 24 feature article, including design commentary by Ted Brewer. If you can't get hold of a back issue, email me and I will send you a copy of the article.
