pro boat westward 18 review, info?
« on: June 14, 2015, 04:56:13 pm »

Hi Lads
I am looking at getting a small yacht, so far am looking at the Victoria 2 , which I have found lots of info on and seems a nice little fun yacht, my local shop sells a westward 18, nice size for some fun , however I cannot find much info on if its a good little boat, anyone have one any feed back? or a good yacht? I don't like MMs , sorry MM owners
thanks Glen

The Victoria is a good little yacht but for sailing well out of the box
you cannot beat the Joysway Dragonforce or Explorer.
The proboat is a little smaller and may disappoint.

The Seawind is a fine yacht Glenny.
IOM's if competetive go for silly money IMHO.
Older ones can be good value.
