Thanks very much,
Yep. A very long fin keel (or long keel with cutaway forefoot, if you prefer). Low-aspect rudder on a full, heavy skeg.
Built like a brick outhouse, and with similar sailing qualities.
The P365 has no accomodation whatsoever aft of the companionway
, so has quite small accomodation (just a tight v-berth and main saloon) for its length but enormous deck storage
. Has a very nice heads compartment with separate shower
, unusual in this size. Excellent side-facing nav table. Horrible engine
access (engine mounted backwards below companionway
, driving through v-drive). Very strong and immensely seaworthy
. Very, very slow.
