Great liveaboard with classy looks. I would put it in the high maintenance, over priced, show piece category. Performance? There is none....(And yes I understand that there are people who sailed these very long distances.)

unless you're measuring resistance to movement. We met some folks with one several years ago. I agree that it was a great looking boat. I thought it looked like a Hans Christian.

Just took a look at some Yachtworld listings. To say that it looks a lot like a Hans C is an understatement. They look like the same boat to my unproffessional eye.
