Had a look at one - not bad.
Anyone out there with opinions or experiences with this model?

Yeah - not bad cruising boats at all particularly a well finished boat. Most in Australia were hull and deck built and then owner finished. There are two near me in the marina, and one in particular is an exceptional nicely finished boat. Sails okay and is a marvellous live aboard boat for long term sailing. (its for sale as well by the original owner)

They have limited vision from inside which is an absolute must for me, and are a little heavy for their length but all in all you could do a lot worse. Good ones are fairly expensive, a real good one (after allowing for rigging replacement sail replacement etc etc) was not much different from my new boat in terms of price when we were looking so they dropped off my radar.

But like I said - definitely worth a look.
