Thestral is a great boat. She is solid and handles waves and high wind with a sense of security lacking in many modern boats.
She is also not a slouch, with main (reefed x1) and headsail we were doing comfortably 7kts in 22kts on a broad reach. She also looks great and we get many a a compliment when we come in to anchor.
She is so spacious, the saloon very light thanks to the bay window. With the captain chairs you can read with out contortion and slouch on the sofa - very comfortable. The galley allows you to cook properly and we have cooked numerous feasts without running out of room. A huge fridge helps and loads of storage.
We have upgraded and refurbished many parts including the engine with an eye on cruising blue water. We are only selling her due to family ill health and will not have the time to take her sailing in the near future.
If you are looking for a boat that keeps you safe, looks great sailing, has character and built in an age when they knew how to build quality boats then Thestral is one to look at. She is ready to go blue water or cruise any where you want to take her.
