Hartley Queenslander 34 Ferro - thoughts, ideas, feedback?

Hey everyone

Long time browser, first time poster.

I am from Auckland, New Zealand and looking at a possible purchase of a 1980's 34ft Hartley Queenslander built of Ferro. I have been sailing for the past 3-4 years and have done most sailing on our current boat, a fibreglass Raven 26 MK1 (Owen Wooley design) and on a 40ft Hartley South Seas.

I loved sailing on the Raven and the South Seas and I am now looking at a step up in boat size and wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the Queenslander design specifically. I understand that FC has its lovers and its haters so I am more interested in the actual layout and sailing capabilities of the yacht design more than whether FC is a good or bad thing!

Look forward to hearing back from anyone who has experienced one of these yachts.
