From the brochure

The designer John Hanna dreamed of going to Tahiti, he designed a stout double ender. “She is dry; that means she stays on top of the waves and does not tend to stick her nose under them. She is easy in her motions; she is remarkably easy to handle and obedient to the helm. She has the much desired but seldom obtained merit of a good cruiser, the ability to sail herself and hold her course for hours with the tiller lashed. She has laughed at the worst storm she has ever yet met.”
