fantasia 35 performance

Hi to all !!

I've been looking at this boat but besides all the info in their web site (wich is a lot)http://www.fantasia35.com/ I can't find opinions in regards of its performance.

On that web site there's a graph showing wind speed and boat speed but I don't know how that compares to other boats or how to correctly interpret it

I'm interested in a costal cruiser; performance is not a top priority but at over 21000Lb with a sail area of 630Sq Ft seems like a very heavy boat.

I'd like to know what some of the experienced people think about this boat based on the info above or personal experience.

Other numbers I foun are: disp/lwl ratio over 500 and motion confort of around 50.

I know all this numbers don't mean anything by themselves and that's why I'm asking for the experienced to help me make sense of all this.


Thanks in advance for your replies.

Kim & James,
Here is someone else asking the same question (more or less) that you asked on the "bluewater" thread.
At any rate, I decided to save you the trouble of reposting, and dredged up this old post.
I've seen a Fantasia 35 and my recollection was, "Holy smokes! That's the definition of high freeboard".
I spoke to the owner and he said it sails like a Westsail (slow), but is solid. I thought it was related to the Westsail somehow, but am not sure. Others might know more about it.
The good thing is that you can probably play basketball inside with regulation basket height.
