It is designed and built as a high caliber, attractive, comfortable, yacht that will appeal to both the cruiser and the aspiring racer. A walk around the boat on the hard reveals the beautifully engineered keel centerboard that, once again, affords the best of performance for the competitive sailor, and allows the cruiser of shallower waters to do just that- cruise in the Chesapeake unfettered. Looking at her deck layout and rigging, it is apparent it to favors the go-fast strategy- a multitude of winches, rod rigging, hydraulic backstay adjuster, running back stays, and a variety of ways to adjust the sails, shape the mast, and tweak the sail plan if the need is for speed. But, if an easy, laid-back cruise is your plan, you don’t need any of the gadgets and widgets. Just set the sails and go.
