This is an older (obviously) racer cruiser
, intended to be a club racer
cruising capability. It was not a big seller but it is a decent boat
. It will sail well, including upwind, but it won't be really fast downwind. It's IOR influenced hull
shape will restrict it's top speed. Never the less, it will outsail most cruising yachts launched in the last 40 years if equipped with moderate sails
and properly handled. What you will find is that it will sail fast with small sails
and it can turn into a handfull with big sails. Reef early and use a working jib
, you will be pleased.
There is volume inside for cruising, but not a lot. Tankage will be limited. You can add more tanks
will also be somewhat limited.
With it's age it may already have many modifications and added equipment
, but otherwise you will spend a lot of money
adding cruising equipment
All in all you will a a good sailing boat
which can be a decent cruising boat.
