I tried searching through the forums
and was having trouble finding relevant info, especially on the Newport
. I am getting a first boat and just looked at a 1985 28' Newport
MkII, as well as a 1987 Hunter
26'. Both boats were in excellent shape from what I can tell and I am struggling to make a choice.
I would really like to hear from people who have experience with one or both of these boats, especially in terms of build quality, ease of sailing, etc. Obviously, I will be getting a survey
done on whichever I ultimately decide on, but I was hoping to get some basic ideas on which boat people prefer and why.
Thanks in advance for everyone being so helpful!
