Sail handling has been thoroughly engineered for simplicity, reliability, and ease of use. All control lines, sheets and halyards have been led below the deck to control/winch pods located in the cockpit. Self-tailing primary winches are standard. The starboard winch is electric, which makes raising the mainsail from the cockpit a breeze. The only sheets running above deck are for the optional cruising gennaker. These are led aft to a location handy to the helmsman and are controlled by self-tailing manual winches. All of these features allow the helms-person to comfortably single-hand the boat whenever that is their preference. Forward of the control pods are spacious port and starboard cockpit seats that are over six feet in length. They are comfortably suitable for seating six adults. Cockpit seat hatches on all three seats allow access to the lazarette. Guests may lounge in the comfort and safety of this spacious cockpit.
The hull and appendages are designed and built for fast and nimble performance under both power and sail. Exterior styling is traditional with gelcoat deckhouse and gloss varnished exterior teak including the toe rail, coaming cap, eyebrow trim and cabin top handrails. The deck is finished in non-skid and the cockpit sole is finished with teak decking. All mechanical installations are simple and straightforward. A Yanmar 21hp Saildrive engine with 2-blade Flex-o-Fold propeller is standard for auxiliary propulsion. Wind, depth and speed instrumentation are standard. A complete owner's manual is included.
