It's telling, however, that Still didn't specifically describe to what purpose these attributes should be put. After an inspection and test sail, I classify the Maestro 40 as a racy cruiser, not a racer/cruiser. The cockpit ergonomics leave little space for competitive crews to access the sheets, and by compressing all sailing functions so far aft, a traffic jam of clutches, winches, and lines occurs. This may be fine for a singlehander but not for a full crew. To reach its full potential, this high-performance hull, being "tweaky" by nature, may require better workspaces for more crew. As is, however, this Finnish creation is a stylish, fast, and fun machine.
