The E-33 is surprisingly quick.. but the one I've sailed on has a non stock rudder than is less than ideally balanced so with a tiller it can be a bit of a beast, but dialed in she's very hard to beat. Good lines, great rig proportions, good cockpit.. my only beef with the boat is it's a bit dark below, esp compared to our rather bright interior. But we can't normally catch her, esp upwind.
Interestingly the 36, very similar looking and also by Holland, has a masthead rig.
