Hey hi there very interested in the Orion 50 and your knowledge on the subject.
I am in the process of buying
one from Mexico
. Mine is as per the great naval arc
. (Gary Mull) original plans at 58 foot. I personaly love the thought of extra deck
space aft resulting in massive lazerete storage
and increase in water
line length also think the original design follows the elegant line of the boat
. She is a 1986 model and I would be very interested to know how many from the 7 or 8 built are left? Is there any other 58s around?
I agree with you the build quality is of a very high standard.
I am Australian and sailing Inca back across the Pacific starting early March 2011.
