We have Crowther 54 MkIV - based on Crowther 50 design. We ( my wife and I) had a monohull over 10 years and cruised Aus east coast and purchased this Crowther design earlier this year (March).
I would be keen to hear about the performance of Crowther 50? We are still learning how to sail her - tacking seems to be close to impossible manouver. Going 7-8 knots with 70 degree apparent and we find ourselves not turning through the wind. Our Paws is aluminium cat, displacement around 18t.
Keen to learn more- we are going to retire on Paws within next few years.We are based on Pittwater, Sydney.
