Quick Look: e33 Daysailer

Cruising World 2008 New Boat Showcase

Of the current crop of daysailers, the e33 is perhaps the only one with no pretensions to grander objectives. It does have a cuddy and a couple of cushioned settees, but they really are only there to let you shelter in some comfort from the rain while you wait for the launch to take you back to shore.

While the e33's styling from near-spoon bow to aft-raked transom is reminiscent of the lovely profiles Carl Alberg drew for boats of the 1960s and 1970s, the tall, round-top, roachy mainsail definitely is not. A displacement of about 6,000 pounds combined with less than 9 feet of maximum beam on a 27-foot waterline, give this hull some numbers that point to a high thrill potential. The cockpit does have drink holders, but with this boat's sail area to beam ratio, they probably should be gimbaled.
