edel 35

Hello there,

My name is giorgio. Traveller and sailor. I ve just landed on cruisersforum; thank you for having me.

I d like to do the round the world following the trade winds on a cat and I was thinking at buying an edel 35 1989 single engine. I have read good reviews, but then I found a post on yahoo groups: "The most inconvenient with the Edel Cat 35 is (was, because the builder has changed !) the quality of the building. She was brand new, and three months later (no more than 3000 nm on the log) we had a large crack (about 2 feet long) in the central pod, because of the slamming in the waves..".

Also I have heard of little headroom under the net which cause waves to slam hard in rough seas....

I am trying to understand whether the edel is a safe, seaworthy lady even in high stormy seas. Is there anybody with first hand experience on an Edel 35 who can tell me?

I am also considering: iroquois mk2 and prout 34. Any expert on these two girls?

thanks a lot,

giorgio

Re: edel 35

I've heard good things about the Edel though never owned one. As a Prout owner though I can say they will take you anywhere in any conditions safely. Great boats and very affordable now
