Nantucket 33

In my search for a 33-38 ft cruiser, I stumbled across a Nantucket 33 (nantucket Islander 33?) for sale near me. Does anyone have any information on this boat? It is distinguished from a similarly named Dutch boat with a steel hull made in the mid '60s. This is an Aussy designed boat, built in Taiwan I think. I'm particularly interested in sailing quality in all types of air, as we live on the Chesapeake and get light air days frequently.

Nantucket owner

I have owned a Nanutucket Island 32 (or 33, depending on who you talk to) since 1998, and would be happy to answer any questions you might have. I have been quite happy with the boat's construction. She is moderately heavy, so a good light air sail is helpful for low wind speeds (i often use a small cruising spinnaker when winds are light (5-7 knots), and the battenless-main + roller furling jib for anything higher. On Talaria, 17 knots apparent is the point where a first reef in the main makes things comfortable. The boat balances well, and has given me many pleasurable miles of coastal cruising. Please let me know if you would like any additional details!
