I think that is an old Farr designed IOR era boat. The 29 is actually a Farr 9.14 which was also built overseas as well. They seem to be pretty nice boats as old IOR boats go.

Thank you very much for your advice. Seems I need to continue my "boat hunting".

How about Compass 29? Ever heard of it?

Thanks heaps.

Welcome to sailing. Half tonners are a type of race boat designed to race under the IOR, an now obsolete rating rule. While I am not familiar with the Adams per se, the IOR of that era generally produced pretty unseaworthy and difficult boats to handle. Generally they don''t make very good cruisers as they tend to be pretty spartan and are not terribly robust. They are also difficult boats to race requiring comparatively large crews and sail inventories.

Hi guys,

I am living in Australia, looking forward to buy my first boat.

Anyone has experience with an Adams 31? The one I like was built 1984 half-tonner(what does it mean?)

I am new to the sailing world, only took a few days sailing lessons and have some small boat experience. All I want is a cruiser for weekends. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
