I own a 421 that is currently under charter
management in Oz. I recently purchased a secondhand Asymmetrical Spinnaker
from e-Bay for. $1000 AUD the best money
I have spent on the boat so far, off the wind
it is just awesome to sail now. I believe the 420/421 have all been tarred with the same brush re the hybrid drive issues and people can not see past that. My advice is sail one and then make up your mind. A Race
boat it is not but a comfortable spacious cruiser 42 foot long it is.

Link to some video of the boat not very professionally done but gives you a good idea of a 421 off the wind
in 10-15 knots under Asymmetrical Spinnaker
