Information

I have found posts on most hulls but none on the Sabo 50. Does anyone know anything or have experience on one? I am guessing it replaced the Salina 48, if it did is it using a new mold?

Re: SANYA 57 too slow under sail?

We are considering one, I do not care if they are slow. We are retired, love comfort, and besides it can not be any slower than our Columbia C-45.

Full keel boats

We have look at several new boats that we like but they all have fin keels. Our Columbia has a full keel which I like better. Do any boat manufacturers still produce full keels?
