Singlehanding a Citation 34

Hi all,

I'm contemplating a Citation 34 a friend of a friend will be selling (next year). My question is this: is this a boat that can be single-handed?
I presently sail a Pearson 26, daysailing, and most times single-handed. When I move up (I hope!), I'd like a boat I can continue to sail myself. Thanks for input.

No reason you can't singlehand it. It's mostly a matter of having everything laid out to facilitate doing so.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

I sure hope you can.

If you can't I'm in trouble too as I expect to be able to sail mine while the commodore does more important things

bigger boats are easier to sail...more forgiving and take higher winds. You'll do OK
