A Contessa 26 was the only small boat she sailed as I recall. Named Varuna.

Hi all,

I'm new to sailing, and my family is also cosidering an Edel 665 as well that has come available locally. I have scoured the net and could find very little on these in terms of reviews. We are looking to do coastal cruising around Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, weekending, possibly some racing for fun. Any thoughts on the Edel 665 in terms of safety, stability, construction and value retention?

I am looking at buying one as a first sail boat and any info would be appreciated.
Hello, I have an Edel 4 - the same as you are looking for I think?
It is a pretty roomy boat for the size, won't plane to windward, but pretty good off the wind. Sailed mine from Cean to La Rochelle - Alderney Race, Channel de Four and Raz de Siene - pretty comfy in wobbly water and a lot drier than some bigger boats in the races - didn't get much green water at all!
A good solid first boat, pretty forgiving and not too serious if you run out of water - with the stub keel and lifting plate. Done a few jobs on mine and impressed by the build quality - GO FOR IT!
