My wife and I bought this boat as inexperienced sailors and we bought it because it was built locally and was a stable craft. We have used it primarily in Buzzards Bay and it handles the chop magnificently. It has been stored on land and moored in Barlows Landing. you can see more pictures at Howard Boats. It is fast, maneuverable, and has a very shallow draft. It has an open cockpit but is pretty dry sailing; it will easily seat four.
It comes with everything you need to sail, including a 4 stroke 2 HP Honda engine and a trailer.
