As taken from The Sailor's Multihull Guide, " The Hirondelle is a great little family coastal cruiser. Small yet speedy and surprisingly comfortable, this new version of a tried and true design remains one of the most affordable cruising options, with performance that will delight any sailing enthusiast. The wide aft cockpit, small rig and stable design make her an ideal choice for a small family or a couple just learning to sail. The cleverly designed, uncluttered interior layout includes two aft single berths, a dinette that converts to a double berth, roomy galley, navigation area, separate head and commodious storage space. This boat is well-suited for the self-sufficient budget-minded sailor."

This boat has been used as a live-aboard by the present owner, who has sailed from his home in New Hampshire to Ft. Lauderdale. PHOENIX is well equipped for a boat this size.
