Comfortable/fast passage maker. The long waterline + light weight has enabled her to smoothly out-run or stay with weather systems making for efficient and safe sailing (200-250nm daily averages, 350nm/day record to date). Set-up for short/single- handed sailing. All halyards & sheets, steering, engine, and electrical controls lead to one central, interior location, with 360 degree visibility. Over the past three years since launching, I have been refining and augmenting the details: better strength+performance= better enjoyment/peace of mind.
Rolling out first hull April 2002.
