If you get a sound and clean sample then it is one of the boats that can take you to nearly anywhere.
They are a bit on the heavy side so if you are after fast exhilarating passages then forget it. If you want a boat that will take heavy weather
in her stride then you have found one. They sail very well, but the need some breeze to get going.
Down below they are coffin-like - probably because of the doghouse/flush deck
design. Not to everybody's tastes, but some will like it. Finish inside varies wildly, some are fantastic others barely acceptable.
Beware there are many executions, maybe the hulls were sold half-made or in more than one boatyard.
If you search the web there ARE (or at least there used to be) quite a good number of sources.
I would buy one if they were within my budget
Popular in NL and many came from UK.
