Specifically, the judges remarked on how the well-balanced hull slices effortlessly through the water under sail. They were intrigued by the dual rigs that split up the sail area and make it so easy to sail wing and wing dead downwind. They also found that the cockpit layout worked well, and above all else, they felt that the boat produced the visceral joy of sailing that embodies all the reasons we set off on a journey or a daysail. And just because the interior lacks headroom, it doesn’t mean that the boat won’t work on an overnight, or longer, adventure. Sure, it’s a bit more like a camping experience, but then again, it might not matter when you realize the Presto can take you to shallow places that many coastal cruisers can’t. Can you say Bahamas, anyone?
