Information on SKYE 51 sailboats

Am interested in findind out about Skye 51 sailboats.
Specifically, where they were manufactured, overall quality, and any other thoughts members might have.
Am looking for a 3 cabin offshore boat, in the 47 to 55 foot range.
Presently impressed with the Hylas, Tayana, Bristol manufactured boats.

I sailed on one for a few days.....

In January '92, when I bought my boat in Miami, I sailed on "Oasis" with the owner Jerry, and another friend Jurgen Heil, from Germany. It was a nice boat, sailed great, with a lot of good gear for the time, weather fax, radar, SSB (short band radio of some kind). It was a real treat to sail on a boat like that, since it wasn't a great boat for paid chartering, with no big forward cabin etc, or I'd have never had the opportunity to sail on one. It was just a spur of the moment trip.
Jerry said, "What are we doing sitting around here ? Lets go to the Bahamas !" It was a blast sailing across the Gulf Stream, on the way to the Berry Islands. It was a pretty fast trip since Jurgen had to be back in about 4 or 5 days to fly back to Germany.
I was impressed with the boat, it had electric winches, and racing gear, spinaker etc.... not the usual cruising stuff. I loved the wide open deck, and performance too. It drew a bit of water, we dragged it in the sand a few times, but it had the power to go through the sand easily, it wasnt any problem at all getting free. I think it drew about 6 or 7 feet.

Doubt he much cares, given that his post is over two years old. Please check dates on posts before replying.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
