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?

Re: Mystic 30?

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.

Re: Mystic 30?

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.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

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.

Re: Mystic 30?

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.
