I owned a Bene 235 and was relatively happy with it for about two years. Its reasonably well built, but holding market price fairly well, so a bargain may be hard to find. The
outboard was a real PITA in anything but moderate wave conditions. It was also hard to leave the helm unattended for any longer than 40 seconds. Better than a Cata 22 but I''d suggest moving up to at least 26 ft. You will be a much happier weekend camper.

As an observer but not yet a contributor on this forum I have been greatly appreciative of the insights Jeff has provided on virtually everything that has ever sailed!

My question: HOw would you rate my 1978 Paceship PY-26 against the recommended boats you have described here? I bought it a year ago as a "first boat" and have been pretty much pleased with it. It''s not the fastest, but it''s forgiving and has been a good learning experience.

Thank you for the kind words. I like the Paceship PY26. They sail well for that era and have reasonably good construction. No bad habits that I know of. The rudder is a little vulnerable to problems over time because of their construction. I am morefamiliar with the keel model then the swing keel model but seems like a very good choice for a first boat.

Good luck,
Best wishes
Jeff
