Easy sail-handling with in-mast roller furling, furling genoa and all lines leading aft to the cockpit, make this boat ideal for sailing with limited crew, or single-handed, easily.Her excellent performance on all points of sail make her a comfortable passage-maker, a worthy competitor when racing and always a fun and responsive boat to sail. This is a well-maintained (owner's pride and joy) boat. She is in 'sail-away' condition, fully air-conditioned with reverse cycle heat pump and a 'quietly-located', sound-encased, 8kW generator, two Kiss wind generators and five solar panels.
