                  • Skye 51

                    The Skye 51 by Kaufmann & Ladd is an ideal long distance cruising yacht with a reliable and safe sea keeping character.

                    Moa Ta Shipyard (Taiwan)
                    Available as cutter or ketch.
                    Because of a dispute between the American importer and the builder, some were sold as MAO TA 51.
                    Also sold by Pan Oceanic Marine (USA) as OCEANIC 51.

                        • Hallbery-Rassy 33 Mistral

                          The HR33 is a solid cruiser which competed on behalf of Hallberg for the cruising market against the Rassy Rasmus, following the acquisition they complimented one another very well. Skeg hung rudder, reasonably long keel, very well protected prop, foam core eliminates rot issues, tiller was standard (even those fitted with a helm have a tiller backup), stout rigging, good sail plan, sizable tankage (located as such to keep a low CQ), tons of storage space, very usable/well protected cockpit, nice anchor locker, excellent galley layout, berths for up to 6 and lots of space for moving about safely on…

                                  • Island Packet 420

                                    IP 420 is the smallest of two head configurations of Island Packets. While carefully reviewing plans for 440, 460 it appears that those have almost identical accommodations with LOA increased mainly due to extended swim platforms..

                                        • Formosa 43

                                          the Formosa 43 is quite unique member of the Formosa lineup... More reminiscent of a swan then a Formosa. My parents have had one for about 15 years and it is one heck of a boat. It's particularly well laid out for a family or for chartering, which I believe was its original purpose.
