A Polish couple sailed RTW in a modified one. Some of them were built there under the name Conrad, in Joseph Conrad boatyard (no longer in business).
I have been onboard of two and they seemed OK, at the dock
. A friend sails
one - coastal sailing from N Europe
to Med and back. He says good things about the boat too.
What I do not like about them is they seem very much based on an (?) IOR racer hull
- may become a handfull in heavy going downwind (?). My guess, not something I experienced.
They have nice, small cockpit
and the interior
looks pretty seagoing too.
If you buy one keep eye on the keel
joint as I know some of them had issues there - probably too little glass used in the keel-ward portions of the hull. (As said they came from various boatyards
though, maybe it is a boatyar, not design issue).
There are also bigger Carters.
