A top boat, very well presented and at a very good price, really well prepared for coastal and offshore cruising and club racing, with a very easily handled rig.  A very comfortable yacht with a long list of essential offshore equipment, she’s not too far off Cat 1. The yacht has a moderate-displacement hull (9600kg on a waterline length of 1.45m) with the Standard 1.65m iron keel, which has a reverse profile – maximum chord is at the bottom – to support the substantial bulb. The rudder is very deep, almost as deep as the 1.65m keel.

The boat features a large cockpit and clear decks – she’s easy to walk around. Twin spreader nine-tenths rig (the forestay attaches to the mast well below the masthead) with single lowers. The chainplates are tied to the keel structure by stainless steel rods, which are visible in the outboard areas of the saloon. The No.1 genoa has a substantial overlap, but great for effortless and short handed sailing.

The three-cabin set-up has a master stateroom in the bow, and two double cabins aft. Galley is arranged in linear fashion down the port side. The work surface extends full-length, including a cover over the stove, which hides the cook top when not in use. The surface itself is Corian.

The two mirror-image double cabins aft have plenty of shelving, hanging space and lockers, with opening hatches mounted in the front faces of the cockpit seats to provide ventilation.
