I bought my boat a year ago and it's from 1991, so not quite brand new. In May I sailed from US to Finland
and then I've been cruising the summer in the finnish arkipelago.
The good things are first of all seaworthiness, relatively fast and plenty of room compared to my previous 30' trimaran
. It's amazingly easy to handle in the marinas
My wife loves to cook and have some quests on board and that's just fine now.
I'm 184 cm tall and there is space enough for me even the beds are long even there are beds only for five.
The less positive things are that there is a nacelle under the bridgedeck and on the way when sailing with the Golf stream and waves against some 5 to 7 m they hit the nacelle strongly especially if the speed was over 12 kn.
Inside when coming in after the watch with wet gear
we had to go through the saloon
and down to the head
were there is space for wet clothes.
I've ordered new dynema sails
for next season and as the old ones were not so good so I can tell more about the sailing goodies after the summer.
I'm panning to sail summer 2008 roun Ireland
and some years after maybe wisit sister in law in Sidney.
Maybe this gives some picture of my ideas of the boat and if you have experience and/or opinions I'd be pleased to reed.
