“Southern Coaster” is a nicely presented version of the Coaster 33 that appears to have been thoughtfully spec’ed for ease of handling. The current owner has used her both for cruising locally and extended trips up to the Western Isles of Scotland.
We like the Coaster 33’s as an intelligently thought out motorsailer with good accommodation and probably better performance than most of her type.
