Design: The 7.6-Meter is sloop rigged and although designed primarily as a weekend cruiser for a family of 4 she moves through the water briskly - I've done over 7 knots in a 15 knot breeze with the standard sails!

Key Features: Anchor locker flush mounted on bow; longitudinal topside stringers; bilge sump; tallbridge deck; full width roller bearing traveller; inboard chainplates; genoa fairlead tracks and car; bronze seacocks on all through-hull fittings; gel-coated inner hull; bulkead-mounted dropleaf table; circuit breakers; lightning grounding; electrical bonding; tiller on transom; 10" deep sink; Lewmar winches; queen-sized extension berth; two sail lockers in cockpit; outboard motor locker; motor access hatch in cockpit for engine controls; portable ice chest; head compartment door and rubrail.

Strengths: HUGE interior! (9'2" beam) - lots of storage everywhere! Very dry, comfortable cockpit. Well built, stiff boat that sails great on all points of sail. Easy to handle. Well balanced. Finger pressure steering on tiller - the boat sails itself!

Weaknesses: Inboard motor might be nice.

Overall Satisfaction: Couldn't imagine a better overall 25 foot sail boat!
