Where are your cruising grounds?
How will you be using it?
What is your experince?
Lots of room and very comfortable.
Most are set up for shorthanded/easy sailing. i.e. roller furling in mast main.
Build quality is always a concern with the mass produced boats. It is also what makes them so attractive to alot of perspective owners.
It really depends on how you plan on using it.
She will not be a rocket ship nor will she be a slug. Our Bending 361 sails very nice. Not a speed sled but not the slowest thing out there either.
If you are a world cruiser, well if you were a world cruiser you probably would not be asking this question.
For an island hopper, I think she would be a good fit.
She would be a great fit for the Great Lakes, that is my home waters.
I can't comment on other parts of the world.
We looked very closely at this model last year.
We really liked the boat.
