I find this hard to believe.
We have a Mottle in our club and it is cruised and raced extensively.
When I was looking for a boat I did consider a Mottle but ruled out the centre cabin. If i remeber there is a lot of stuff available.
I bought a Nortshore 33 and couldn't be happier - Ok maybe a First 45!
