Fast, fun, comfortable, this is the boat to beat everyone on the water including Lasers, Sunfish and larger boats too. If you're in the least bit competitive, if you like sailing fast with great wind or slow and comfortable in a light breeze, this is a terrific boat. I purchased it new but haven't been able to use it at all for the past two seasons and before that only a few times a summer. It has been kept in a heated garage when not in use and only seen fresh water. It comes with every top accessory including carbon fiber mast upgrade, aluminum trailer, covers for everything including the boat and rudder and centerboard, cooler and mainsail and spinnaker.
Wet sailing in hot weather is awesome and on cool days wear a little extra coverage. I'll throw in a lesson or two for the buyer (not a test sail) if you need/want some guidance. The boat sets up in about 20 minutes from the trailer and off you go. This is one cool looking boat too and the shape is part of the reason it's so fast and comfortable too. No hard edges, just comfortable curves, more like a stealth sailboat. For this boat or any smaller boat of this size you'll want to be agile, medium to light weight of any age. Kids would find this a fantastic boat to lake sail. It is stable but if you go over it's amazingly easy to set up again and the water spills directly out the open rear of the boat.
