I have sailed on an Allied Seawind 32' ketch that a fellow bought up here in NY who solo sailed down to the FL Keys earlier this year. I liked the build quality of the boat and had never sailed on a ketch before. With its lower mast heights and less sail area aloft it seemed more stable, less tender then a sloop rig might.
Once the fellow made it to the Keys he decided to sell it as he wanted a boat that could tack at a higher angle to the wind with better speed for the Bahamas, Bermuda and beyond. These boats were largely built for going with the trade winds rather then beating into the wind. Great plastic classic IMHO.
