Performance wise I guess it may not be fast, but there are many criteria to performance. I imagine it would point better than a catamaran
, and be way nicer to sail to windward in a blow than most fin keeled monohulls. We just bashed back from Mexico
to Ensenada a few months ago in our 36' full keel
sailboat and after 60 hours of 40 kts on the nose and fairly large , often breaking seas we seemed to have had less of a challenge than several others we talked to, during and after. And most if not all of the Hunters, Jeanneaus and Beneteaus were skippered by delivery
crews because the owners didn't want the kind of punishment they would receive. Another reason we were less beat up is we have a pilothouse, and both aft cockpit
and center cockpit
boats told us their cockpits were full many times.
