The boat was commissioned as a family sailing vessel and launched in 1986 in Holland. It has been used for pleasure cruising, low level racing and has been across the Channel on half a dozen occasions. She is reliable, very comfortable and sails well. We have had no major incidents and enjoyed her very much.
