Neptune 33 (Sloop version of Neptunian 33) - any views?

Hello all,

I am in the process of adopting a boat for Med coastal cruising and weekend outings.

Due to financial and stylistic reasons, I am looking at boats from the late 70's - early 80's. I'd rather go for a slow yet seaworthy boat, much than a racer - I am in no rush!

I came across a Neptune 33, designed by Alan Buchanan, built by Shuttlewood in the South of England. It looks like it's in a fairly ok condition.

Has anyone sailed one? Or even the sibling Neptunian 33 (the ketch version)? Any views? Any experiences? I have indeed sourced all info available online (brochures, photos, data), but cannot find any user views.

Many thanks in advance!
