Shearwater 39

I''d like some comments from anyone that has seen (and better yet experienced) the South-African built and Dudley Dix designed Shearwater 39. THe Shearwater 45 won Cruising worlds boat of the year a year or two ago but that is for me a dream for another lifetime.

This time I''m more interested finding out about the 39.

The boats are touted as voyagers with also good speed potential. Accepting that they are well built for offshore sailing, I''m wondering how practical they will be for the mostly coastal sailing of a family with two young children.

Thanks for comments
