Good stuff: solid and comfortable. The queen-sized aft berth is in large measure what sold my wife on the boat (especially after having spent a few warm nights aboard another boat in one of those sarcophagus-style double-but-really-more-a-single berths). Tall people appreciate the 6'3" to 6'5" headroom. The galley is large and much more functional than other sailboats. The cockpit of the boat is high enough to keep you dry in all but the wildest of circumstances (we often see boats filled with people in foulies while we're in t-shirts and jeans). The boat sails confidently in the 30-35 knot summer breezes here. Maneuvers quite well around the dock for a boat its size with a single screw ... once you give up trying to steer in reverse, and realize that short forward blasts with helm hard over work almost as well as a bow thruster.

Bad stuff: if you're one of those people who simply *cannot* have a single blister of any size on the hull, you'll have to find one that's had the hull ripped down and rebuilt and barrier-coated, or go to the expense yourself. We've simply fixed the dime-to-quarter-sized blisters on haulout, and left the strong and thick hull otherwise well enough alone. If you need to go 12 knots or more to have fun, find another boat; the 47 typically does 5 to 7 under sail, but the keel shape keeps the boat from pounding when going to weather, so you'll end up arriving later, but much less exhausted, than your fin-keeled pals. The 47 does sit high in the water, but this hasn't been a sailing/maneuvering windage problem, as much as it's been a high jump from deck to dock when coming into port.
