I love my Luders 33. Mainly Chesapeake boat
for now, but plan to take up to New England
and down South when time permits.
Surprisingly fast for her vintage if sailed properly, and very solid in big breeze and waves. She is pretty tender
initially because of narrow beam, but this design characteristic makes her easily driven. I experience minimal weather helm
and full control even when heeled over 35-40 degrees going upwind. This is not the case on newer designs!
Obviously a solid boat
, and a head
turner as well
