Robert Perry has designed a lot of great cruisers. No reason to think this is not another one.

Re: Any thoughts on this boat...

G'Day mate,

You might want to contact Bob Perry directly on that one. I think it may be one of the unauthorized builds of one of his designs. That would not fill me with confidence about the build quality.

But I may have the wrong one...

Cheers,

Jim

Mr. Perry does offer a “consultation” service, and might be the best source of information.
