I have one in Tassie, love it.
Fast at sea, well balanced, plenty of sail area, stiff as a brick.
trip from Melbourne, none of the crew had sailed the boat before, 72 hours to the Derwent down the East Coast
Nothing really bumpy though, did 12 knots in Banks Strait.
This boat has done a few Westcoasters, was clocked at 19 knots on the Tassie South Coast.
Planning to go north next year, don't expect any surprises.
It has a proper Adams
, not an IOR bump in sight, clean straight run. About a foot less beam than a plastic fantastic, but that is what helps it sail so well.
is very similar to A Zeston 36, just lighter and less freeboard.
We have a traditional interior
, without the head
compartment in the middle of the boat, feels quite roomy.
The hard dodger
is great at sea. We have a sliding panel in it so there is good headroom
over the hatch
. Some don't have that, but it is a simple retrofit. The other great features at sea are high bulwarks, and the rig was designed from scratch to be a real cutter
