NOTES
Diesel power was available as an option.
Shoal draft: 4.0'.
A similar 'Bahama' model was introduced in 1981 but sold poorly. Not long after, the standard model was then brought back into production until 1985. With more than 400 sold, this was among the brands most successful models.
Rated highly on the used sailboat market. Robert Perry has stated that this is one of his favorite designs.
