TES 28 Magnum?

So, I was just poking around on the internet and found this crazy looking boat...if you crossed a MacGregor 26m with a Beneteau you would get the TES 28 Magnum. I've never seen or heard of this thing before...its either Scandinavian or Polish but they have a branch in Canada. Any comments? It looks like it would sail like crap, but what do I know?

Re: TES 28 Magnum?

The bouchure says it's has a blue water boat option with the fixed keel. Wonder if they can deliver one to the UK?

Why does the brouchure shot of the yacht have all those creases in the sails?

The swing down transom gate doesn't look too blue water friendly to me...and it looks like it would be hell to handle in strong winds. That high freeboard and wide beam look like fiberglass headache to me...

Re: TES 28 Magnum?

We met a family a few years ago that had a TES (I believe it was the 24) and they seemed quite happy with it although it was not without it's problems as I recall (something about the transom motor mount not being strong enough). From what observed, it seemed very slow and tender but the 24 provided decent living space for the size and was trailerable.

The 28 is marketed as "trailerable" as well, but the beam is too wide for regular trailing in the States. Like I said before...it looks like a European MacGregor! I am just so used to looking at Hess designs and Alden designs...I mean even the Hake design Seawards have that nice classic yacht type back profile. This TES just looks a little funny. It's like there's too much boat above the water.
