Jim and I sailed a Yankee 30 to Hawaii
and back in 1983. It is a Sparkman & Stevens design, and was a good "all around" boat. We did a lot of coastal cruising in her, as vacations permitted, taking her to the Channel Is. from San Francisco
a few times. Jim raced her singlehanded, and often had better times than the fully crewed Yankees of the day. It's a small boat in todays' terms, and initially tender
; but a good light air performer, too.
Subsequently, we bought a PJ Standfast 36 which had more room, and we lived aboard and cruised her for 18 yrs.
If you go look at the Bristol, do check the access to the stuffing box, because friends who had one had to pull the engine
to get at it. Way too dangerous for my taste!
