Re: What's your opinion of this boat?
I sailed a few of them in the 80's as a bareboat skipper. I must say I liked the boats and thought them to be well built, well thought out below for tropical living and capable sailing boats considering their shallow draft. I thought them better sailing boats than any of the other comparable bareboats I sailed (Morgans, Gulfstars, and Irwins) of that era except a C&C, the size, and model, I don't remember.
I probably would take a well-found one to sea, but I wouldn't expect a speedy trip or a very comfortable one with that shallow draft.
