Mystic 30?
 
Does anyone have any thoughts, experience with, or impressions of the Mystic 30? Went to look at one today. It's like a giant catboat, but cutter-rigged. Seems like it'd be really slow, though, or am I mistaken?

I should have known better - someone posted this same query on another site and has been waiting for three years for an answer.

Meanwhile, I found this brochure, just in case anyone is curious.

I did have a look at your first links.. not a boat many will be familiar with, only 24 built. looks like a decent, 'cute' shoal draft cruiser, but as with any older boat 'eyes wide open'....;)

Who cares? Just sit on it or stand beside it on the dock and soak it in. :cool::D

Not slow at all!

Granted I had some current here. :) The boat is pretty quick in light air. Plenty of canvas as designed. I think the balance is ruined if you pull the yankee in favor of a genoa. With the regular rig, you have to reef the main fairly early to be comfortable.

I like the look of it, as it is cute. I am a bit confused by the drawings, how does one enter the head the door looks to also be the ladder to the companion way? It also looks like there is a door to an aft cabin from the head with seats by the engine is that just for maintenance? Might not be bad "time out seats" for the kids though! :-)

Catboat??? I was under the impression that a Cat was typically a Bay workboat with the mast fwd in the bows with a huge, single (sometimes gaff rigged) sail. What would make the linked hull a "catboat"?

You are right a cat boat is single un-stayed mast forward. This is obviously not a cat boat, but apparently they are referring to the cabin top going far forward and hull shape looking reminiscent of a cat boat.
