I did a delivery
of a new one from South Africa
up to Tortola a few years back. The origional design was a 38 and later became a 40 when they extended the sugar scoops by 2 feet. So they're 38's with a longer hull
, making the inetrior is not a roomy as the leopard
cats, but the space is well used. FWD bunks in the hull
and huge lockers on the fwd bridgedeck.
On the whole the build was pretty good and she sailed rather well. We had quite big seas comming up from Cape Town
and never had any bridgedeck slam.
I liked the gutters on the coachroof for catching rainwater.
I prefer the leopard
cats for their layout and the hard top bimini
, but one can only dream.
