It offers above and below deck a lot of space and is the ideal ship for sailing and living. A long keel with a ballast ratio of about 11Tonnen. It is not a “racing boat” but has excellent sailing characteristics. Due to the massive roof over the aft deck and individually to rolling panels with plastic windows, the deck is to use even in heavy rain. It has a double cabin with private toilet in the aft ship. Moreover, there is housed on the starboard side, a small storage space in a washing machine. The salon is spacious with windows on three sides.
