“This light-displacement Philippe Briand design was produced in racing, club and cruising versions. Launched in 1985, the cruising model sports an airy, open-plan interior with light-coloured elm joinery. There are berths for six, a good galley and a reasonably sized chart table. A relatively large, comfortable cockpit and sugar-scoop bathing platform both enhance her appeal as a family cruiser. Her rig is much cut down from the sportier versions, but she is still a reasonable performer. A good starter boat for a family of four, she is at her best daysailing rather than offshore cruising.”
