Very good reputation, fast enough to have a good time in club races and like any IOR yacht, a big gut making her comfortable below decks. The rear cabin
is a treat (if you're into that and happy with a centre cockpit).
I have a Carter designed boat that was built by Mariner yachts in Sydney
. I've been trying to figure out where Mariner got the moulds to see if they are the same hull as the ones built by Olympic in Greece.
So I did some measuring of my boat yesterday and it turns out the rig dimensions are an exact match for the Carter 3/4 ton design which also happens to be 10m (33'). So I have the feeling that the Australian built ones (at least the ones built by Mariner) were built to the later, heavier design.
I'd be interested to know what the J measurement is for the Carter Passage 33 built in Australia
to see if it matches the J measurement for mine. If they are the same then it might suggest that perhaps they used the same hull moulds with a different deck mould...
